Social media profiles of pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine

While many pro-Ukrainian protesters coordinated they actions  through Facebook in Nov 2013-Feb 2014, pro-Russian separatists are mainly active in the biggest Russian social media network VKontakte. Alleged to be funded by Russian government, they have created groups under the name of Antimaidan.

What are the profiles of the users, who actively post and comment with calls to disobey Ukrainian government and join Russia? Many of those users live not just in Kharkiv, but in Luhansk, Sevastopol, Moscow etc. The avatars reflect values of those separatists – Soviet Union, Stalin, Putin, Slavic unity, Russia.
