As a follow-up to last month's look at foreign fighters on the Russian side in Donbas, here is a Facebook network centered on Lublin-based Paul Marian Heinrich (Pawel Marian Misiuk). Herr Heinrich travels a bit, and links fighters on the Russian side in Donbas with boosters of Bashar Assad, in a social network that features a mix of batshit crazy Western "anti-Zionists" and elements closely associated with IRGC and IRI intelligence agency MOIS. The dark blue components are all one degree from Heinrich while the faded are two degrees. As usual, a vector PDF of the network is available (as are edgelists upon request).
