Russian private military companies are conscripting inmates from prisons in the city of Ulyanovsk to fight against Ukraine, the General Staff reported on Oct. 27. According to it, most of those who agree to participate in the war are convicted of murder, rape, and selling drugs.
On Oct. 16, President Volodymyr Zelensky said 2,000 Russian prisoners were sent to fight against Ukraine in Donetsk Oblast and promised them immunity from punishment if they surrendered.
"This is how Russia sponsors terror, it looks for killers in prisons and promises them freedom if they kill again," Zelensky said.
