Mass PARDONS Of Murderers Coming – Putin Pulls A Dirty Trick
(RightWing.org) – With Ukraine counter-attacking the invaders and Russian losses mounting, President Vladimir Putin needs to fill the ranks of his struggling army. Unfortunately for him, it seems volunteers are thin on the ground. Now, even hardened criminals are being offered the chance to die for their country in Ukraine.
As many as 400 violent criminals, including murderers and sex offenders, have been recruited to fight in Ukraine. The Wagner Group, a private military company with close links to Putin, has been enlisting convicts with the promise of a pardon if they serve on the front line for six months. At the same time, they’ve been warned that if they desert — as many Russian soldiers have already done — they’ll be shot.
According to reports, at least 54,000 Russian soldiers have now died in Ukraine, with some estimates as high as 80,000. The units involved in the invasion have been hollowed out, and volunteers aren’t coming forward to make up the losses. The Kremlin has already resorted to using Arab and Chechen mercenaries to boost numbers, and North Korea has offered Putin 100,000 “volunteers” from its massive army. Is Russia desperate enough to carry on fighting with its army replaced by a foreign legion and penal units, or will Putin finally see sense and leave Ukraine in peace?
