In the colonies of the Russian Federation, prisoners are again recruited to participate in the war
During winter recruitment, two to three times fewer people agree to go to war than in autumn and spring.
Wagner PMC recruiters began to return to the Russian colonies, from where they had already taken prisoners for the war in Ukraine. It is reported Media area.
The prisoners said that today the recruitment takes place in a less solemn atmosphere than before, when the prisoners were lined up in the square and the founder of the Communist Party of Ukraine, Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, arrived by helicopter .
According to the publication, during winter recruitment, two to three times fewer people agree to go to war compared to autumn and spring.
The reason for this is the distrust of the promises of the “Wagnerians”, as it is noted in the information space and in telephone conversations with recruits that, in particular, under Bakhmut, 20% of those sent to war remained alive.
Previously, the publication wrote that in September and October 2022, the number of detainees decreased by 23,000 people. After that, the stats weren’t updated for two months. However, according to data as of the end of January 2023, the number of inmates has stopped declining, which could indicate a slowdown in the pace of recruitment at Wagner prison.
Recall, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, that to compensate for the loss of personnel, the enemy is trying to attract participation in hostilities convicted women serving their sentence in a colony in the occupied territories.
Earlier, mass media reported that Wagner is in PMK the number of mercenaries quintupled.
