The website gulagu.net reported on repeated cases of agitation and recruitment of prisoners in Russian colonies to take part in combat operations in Ukraine.
Prisoners are offered the following:
- To join the Wagner PMC under contract.
- Six months of service and a full pardon, with the removal of the criminal record.
- Salary of 100 thousand rubles plus a bonus of 100 thousand rubles.
- At the death of 5 million rubles, the salary is transferred to relatives every month.
From a conversation with an informant we know the following: “Two weeks training and a sweep. Preferably part 2 105 or 111 of the Criminal Code” (articles in the Criminal Code “murder with particular cruelty” or “infliction of grievous bodily harm”). “Yes, they will give me a gun.
No construction work, only war. They are launched, the enemy works on them, ours calculates where the enemy is hitting from. That is, they are taken as live bait.”
