Wagner Mercenary’s ‘Testicles Is Cut Off While Trying To Surrender’
A Wagner mercenary fighting in Ukraine had his testicles cut off by commanders after trying to surrender, according to a new report.
Citing phone intercepts, a Ukrainian military intelligence document detailed how one fighter attempted to give himself up to Kyiv’s forces, but was punished severely.
One soldier is heard telling another: ‘The Wagnerians caught him and cut his f**king balls off,’ according to the document obtained by CNN.
The Russian private military contractor, owned by oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, has developed a reputation over the years for its merciless attitude on the battlefield.
Prigozhin has recruited prisoners to fight along-side his more elite soldiers, using the convicts as canon fodder to advance over the blood-soaked fields of Ukraine.
However, after Wagner and Moscow’s push to take the town of Soledar – a small town near the key objective of Bakhmut – a Russian journalist has said just one-fifth of the Russian prisoners recruited by Prigozhin remain after the intense fighting.
Speaking in a YouTube video posted by the My Russian Rights project, Olga Romanova, head of the Rus Seated charity foundation, said Wagner had recruited around 42,000 to 43,000 convicts by the end of 2022.
That number has now likely surpassed 50,000 fighters, but ‘10,000 are fighting at the front, because all the rest are either killed…or missing, or deserted, or surrendered,’ she said, according to a translation of her comments by Meduza.
She claimed that desertion has been a major problem for the Wagner Group since Autumn, with fighters often returning home fully armed with weapons.
