A Russian soldier captured by the Ukrainians was interviewed by a Ukrainian blogger, where he explained in detail accounts from the battlefield.
The Russian soldier was recruited by the infamous Wagner mercenary group headed by Yevgeney Prigozhin, who is considered a very trusted ally and man of Vladimir Putin.
According to him, all former prisoners who were recruited and sent to war in Ukraine, were threatened by their superiors that they will be shot to death if they retreat or try not to point the gun at the Ukrainians.
According to him, most of the recruits were former prisoners who have been convicted of murder, rape and even cannibalism.
The claims for the recruitment of former prisoners have been supported by intelligence from Western countries.
In fact, according to them, this is a proof that Putin is losing soldiers to a large extent in the war in Ukraine.
