Now Wagner boss Prigozhin is recruiting raped prisoners
In order to strengthen the Russian troops, Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin is supposed to recruit raped prison inmates. The so-called roosters therefore form a separate unit.
Yevgeny Prigozhin is the leader of the notorious mercenary group Wagner.
Vladimir Putin (70) needs cannon fodder. The war against Ukraine claims many lives. Yevgeny Prigoschin (61), head of the Wagner mercenary troupe, wants to provide supplies. His recipe: prisoners. Whether from Russia or Africa – the reports that Prigozhin is recruiting prison inmates as soldiers are increasing.
Now the notorious mercenary boss is going further: He apparently specifically recruits raped prisoners, reports “Focus”. He wanted to form a new unit with it. Their code name: «roosters».
At the end of the food chain
Rape among male prisoners is not uncommon in Russia. The victims of these rapes are excluded. You’re at the bottom of the prison hierarchy. They are called “offended” or “roosters”.
Because of their low status, they should not be integrated into the existing Wagner troops: “The prison rules state that you cannot shake hands with people of low social status, take objects from them or sleep with them in the same corridor or in a bunk”. , Prigozhin’s press service wrote on Telegram. This means: “roosters” may only deal with “roosters”.
For this reason, a separate unit is planned. This is what a Wagner convict reported in a recent Twitter post published video of how the mobilization of the “Hahne” should take place. On the one hand, they should be recruited separately from “another rooster”. On the other hand, their range of tasks is different: They are good “only for digging trenches and toilets”.
Was Prigozhin himself a “rooster”?
It does not seem unlikely that the raped prisoners will join the troops of Wagner boss Prigozhin: The conditions in Russian prisons are so bad that there are inmates who prefer military service – especially those at the bottom of the hierarchy.
Amazing: The powerful mercenary boss is said to have once stood at the bottom of that hierarchy. Just recently, the Russian mafia boss Sasha Kurara reported on Prigozhin’s past in a video. Prigozhin, who had to go to jail for the first time at the age of 18, is said to have been no more than “a slave in prison”. (bab)
