Leonid Svaytipolk-Mirsky

I'm hoping anyone can assist me on his background such as date of birth, date of death, etc? All, I know is he was sourced as a Hauptsturmfuhrer and co. of artillery for the Druzhina SS Brigade. It seems he doesn't exist since I can only find information about his family but nothing pertaining to him in German or Russian searches. I believe the two sources one which was from Antonio Munoz and the other from https://donschool86.ru/en/the-verb-form ... a-kak.html
