A photo was published on a Wagner-linked propaganda channel on Telegram, which ultimately disclosed the whereabouts of a Russian military equipment repair base, reports Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Wagner is a private Russian military campaign heavily involved in fighting in eastern Ukraine.

The photo features a captured Ukrainian tank destroyer which the propaganda channel calls "a fresh trophy."

RFE/RL found the original source of the photo and geolocated it at an abandoned mine in the town of Yuvileyne, located near Luhansk. It was originally taken by a 55 year-old Omsk resident who most likely volunteered to fight in Russia's war against Ukraine.

Yuvileyne is located approximately 90 kilometers from the established front line.
