In Russia, a prisoner sentenced to 14 years in prison was amnestied for participating in the war against Ukraine.
He returned to his native village, threatened other Russians, and later killed a woman.
The Russian publication Insider writes about it.
In 2020, 28-year-old Ivan Rossomakhin from the village of Novy Burets, Kirov region, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for the murder of a woman and robbery in a nearby town.
However, in 2022, the convict recruited the "Wagner" PMK for the war against Ukraine.
On March 21, 2023, the "hero of Russia" was amnestied for killing Ukrainians at the front and he returned to his native village.
There, the man often drank alcohol and walked around the settlement with a pitchfork and a hammer, threatening to "kill everyone."
He even gutted two cars of local residents.
The local Russian police called the "hero of Russia" a "complete bastard."
The police promised the Russians to send the inadequate man to war again, but this did not happen and he killed the woman.
The son of the deceased said that the Russian woman was brutally beaten by a "Wagnerian" and then stabbed.
Recruiting convicts for the war against Ukraine
For some time, the terrorist Yevgeny Prigozhin actively recruited a convict in Russia for the war against Ukraine.
He promised the Zekas amnesty if they survived the hostilities.
Later it became known that the dictator Putin pardoned convicts who voluntarily went to kill Ukrainians.
Prigozhin himself stated that Putin pardoned 5,000 convicted "Wagnerians" for participating in the war against Ukraine.
Bloomberg wrote that Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of Wagner PMC,
may reduce the presence of his mercenaries in the war against Ukraine.
Instead, it seeks to focus on operations in Africa.
