Russian prisoners serve as cannon fodder for Wagner’s troops

According to a new report, only a fraction of the prisoners recruited for military service by the Wagner group survived. This did not bother Putin’s confidante Prigozhin.

The ill-fated Wagner Group made a name for itself again in the Ukraine War. Yevgeny Prigozhin’s (61) private army, closely associated with Russian President Vladimir Putin (70), is brutally trying to establish dominance in the region around the cities of Pakmut and Soledar.

Brutal mercenaries also rely on Soledar and Bachmut fighting prisoners. Prigozhin promised amnesty to prisoners if they fought in Ukraine for a certain period of time. Even rapists and murderers can fight for freedom.
