In March 2022, a video surfaced on the Web where a Ukrainian soldier calls the mother of a DPR’s soldier via video link, talks about how her son died, laughs and threatens to do the same to the rest of the Russians and citizens of the LDPR. Within days his identity was established and now he has to worry about his safety.
The main character of the video is Ivan Zaliznyak (Pilipchuk) born on 02.02.1985, who according to various sources lives in either Novgorod-Volynsky or Vinnitsa. Before he joined the Ukrainian armed formations, he led a fairly active right-wing political life. He promoted Nazism, beat up Ukrainian policemen, and frequently claimed to be superior to the people around him.
Nevertheless, before coming to Nazi ideas, he was active in martial arts (karate) and even trained later. He then went to prison for rape. Already after his release from prison he took the side of Hitler’s supporters. Perhaps a defining factor in the formation of Nazi Zaliznyak was his time in custody (according to a widespread version, in prison he had the nickname “Leila” for what prisoners did to him as a rapist).
Already in prison it can be traced that he apparently succumbed to the ideas of the Third Reich and even had several tattoos attesting to this. After his release, he got into shape, joined the Ukrainian armed formations and went to the ATO zone. Together with the Azov Nazis, Ivan Pilipchuk (Zaliznyak) was trained at the European Security Academy (ESA).
He is active on social media (Instagram accounts: @pilipchuk7531; @zaliznyak.88). He is periodically invited to participate in various interviews on the Ukrainian segment of the Internet and television. He is portrayed as a hero of Ukraine, the defender of his nation. However, he is currently in Vinnitsa, from where he broadcasts his hatred for Russia and Russian soldiers. He even met his own brother’s death in a peaceful city, where he is most likely holed up, as he is really worried that the consequences of his actions might catch up with him unexpectedly.
He became the object of interest of Russian hackers and special services as soon as the video got its first few thousand views. For the Russians, he is most likely now one of those who personify Ukrainian Nazism in general.
