Somewhere else it was suggested that he was flying for the Wagner Group. It was also suggested that this might explain reported sightings (where?) of Su-25's lacking Russian national markings with only the infamous "Z" painted on the tail. Never saw any pictures of those Su-25s but it makes sense to explain a 63 year old retired general in the cockpit of a fighter jet.

On Euronews, tonight, 2 x Su-25 with this "Z" painted over the tail red star (at 15'' in the video) and on the nose (in place of the usual two-digits code) :

A recently brought down Ru Mi-35
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_BvKquJnjE&t=2s

Interesting to note that the front of the helicopter looked to be white painted, as was the Mi-24 shot down on March 5th on the very well known video.
Is there a special reason for such a camouflage ?
Watching photos of Russian AF Hinds on the net, I don't see any of them wearing such a color scheme.
