Yeah, both were made by Simonov.
PTRS-41 (ПротивоТанковое Ружьё Симонова, or "Simonov anti-tank rifle") is the semi-automatic cousin of the WW2 Soviet PTRD anti-tank rifle.
Designed in 1938 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov, the PTRS-41 is a semi-automatic 14.5x114mm anti-tank rifle that was used along the Eastern Front in World War II and then used again in the Korean War and Chinese Civil War by various factions. Along with his partner Vasily Degtyaryov, Simonov helped the Soviet Union develop new weapons between World Wars. During this time, Degtyaryov would go on to create the PTRD-41 while Simonov would create and design its cousin rifle, the PTRS-41. As one of Simonov's creations, the PTRS-41 would sometimes be known as simply the “Simonov” on the battlefield. Although more advanced, the PTRS was harder to use and less reliable than the cheaper PTRD while yielding similar performance, so the PTRD was used more. At least one of these rifles has been seen in use with pro-Russian rebels in Eastern Ukraine in May/June 2014. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PTRS-41

- Another PTRS, and judging from the dent in the wrist of the stock, it’s not the same rifle as the above photo. http://www.forgottenweapons.com/guns-in-ukraine/

Gun-toting pro-Russia beauty spotted in eastern Ukraine
July 15, 2014 http://nypost.com/2014/07/15/gun-toting-pro-russia-beauty-spotted-in-eastern-ukraine/
She’s a mom on a mission.
This assault-rifle-toting blonde patrolled the grounds outside an eastern Ukraine kindergarten Tuesday.
Looking more like the star of a playground action flick than a pro-Russia militant, this “secessionista” had no use for flak jackets or balaclavas as she flip-flopped her way across a hopscotch game strewn with smashed glass.
Instead, she stuck to the basic accessories: a rugged fanny pack, jeans worthy of the trendiest East Village brunch spot and an assault rifle clutched to her chest with perfectly manicured French tips.
The anonymous soldier was spotted in the economic hub of Donetsk, where more traditional fellow fighters are sticking to camouflage and where conflict could erupt any minute.

IS-3 tank?
There were a number of post-war models, such as the IS-4 to IS-7 and the T-10 (also known as Objekt 730) that was the final development of the KV and IS tank series. It was accepted into service in 1952 as the IS-10, but due to the political climate in the wake of Stalin's death in 1953, it was renamed T-10. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IS_tank_family#IS-3

It's not their tank - they stole it, and they don't drive it - they can't do that.

But that would mean driving crazy. Enough of that in Russia and Eastern Europe as it is.

- Those unmarked "little green men" who suddenly took Ukrainian cities in the conflict were Russian troops.

“2014 – Russian year of culture.” Such images appeared in Russian blogs pretty soon after the green men appeared on Crimean streets. It says, “politeness takes cities” which is a humorous take on the old Russian saying “bravery takes cities”, here used as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Russian state (flag, double-headed eagle) hiding behind a “polite green man.” http://anthropoliteia.net/2014/03/31/little-green-men-russia-ukraine-and-post-soviet-sovereignty/

More like "tug it along with you until you lose interest".
They have more important things to worry about by now.

It took several hours to take over entire peninsula of Crime with bare minimum of enforcement and negotiation. Compare that to 4 month of bloody war that Ukrainian army wages for several month against their own citizens and you get the difference.

Al Capone said, "You can get much farther with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone." But I can elaborate that "you can't go much farther than that with a gun alone."
