BLUE DAWN: Donbass Crisis is a mod created with the help of some parts of the Way to Freedom mod to show you guys both sides of the Donbass Conflict and maybe educate you guys in what is going on there. The thing we want this mod to be focused on is realism and historical events. We researched our intel which we are using by reading loads of stories and articles of the war written by both sides. Also, we will not tolerate any political opinion posted on our forums or mods because this will be punished by a straight ban.
"Death" battalion is a volunteer unit of the Donetsk People Republic. It consists only of ethnical chechens, who have 10+ years of combat experience upon their shoulders. Many of them are former specops and have awards and medals, granted by Islamic Republic of Chechnya and Russian Federation. Most of them are First Chechen War veterans, who changed sides during the second campaign and helped russian forces restoring peace in the republic. 50 battalion members are forming DPR leader Alexander Zaharchenko bodyguard. The structure of the battalion is a bit complicated, but it stated that "Death" battalion and "Russian Orthodox Army" are part of the "Oplot" battalion commanded by Zaharchenko. You can identify "Death" members by the Chechen Republic flag on the shoulder and Ramzan Kadyrov patch on their caps.
