One of the alleged employees of Wagner’s private military company, which is associated with St. Petersburg businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, reacted to a video published by Novaya Gazeta in which several soldiers executed an army deserter Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The message appeared in Wagner’s non-direct CVC group,” TOP NEWS reported.
The post, containing the story of the alleged chVK fighter Wagner, appeared in the public on November 21 with the caption “Subscribers write, came to the offer.” As Readovka notes, judging by the details, the publication was really proposed by one of the employees of the CVC. In it, the narrator does not try to deny the fact of bullying, but at the same time justifies the actions of mercenaries by the cruelty of “sads”.
According to the author, a deserter from Assad’s army, who was caught in a video in the possession of Novaya Gazeta, was caught by mercenaries in late February and early March, when they “conducted a clean-up of the territory just recaptured from the spirits”. According to him, the information that the Syrian soldier said during the interrogation, in particular, about the unit in which he served was correct. For several days the Syrian soldier was in the positions of the CHPC Wagner, and after another shelling of the positions disappeared. “Of course, there was no desire or opportunity to search for him. Sadiq’s are famous skiers, no one gave importance,” he says.
Later, according to alleged CVC fighter Wagner, near the farthest post were found dropped from the drone phone and the severed hand of “our captured.” “We identified the tattoo and the ring. The moles began to look at the phone, thought IED (improvised explosive device – note. “Lents.ru”). And there’s a video where the missing sled man cuts ours alive,” the mercenary continued.
The attack on the posts continued, and then, according to a possible fighter of the CVC, the mercenaries decided to ambush and take three “spirits” in captivity. Among those captured was a missing “Sadiq.” “Well, what else to do with it. The men remembered everything else, and they did to him exactly what he did to ours. Well, in the edification and the video recorded for the spirits. The answer. To know,” he concluded.
The day before, on November 20, Novaya Gazeta reported that several fighters of the CHPC Wagner executed a deserter from the army of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The published footage shows several men in informal uniforms beating a man lying on the ground in civilian clothes with a sledgehammer. The beater speaks Russian without an accent, plays a song with the words “Take off my shoulders heavy machine gun, shoot my son, then shoot my mother.”
According to the newspaper, in 2017, when the video first appeared on the Internet, users assumed that its main characters – fighters of the CVC Wagner. However, the persons on that recording could not be seen, so it was impossible to confirm this information. Novaya Gazeta was able to identify one of the CVC fighters. Presumably, his name is Stanislav D., in Wagner’s group he served in the intelligence. Journalists have a copy of his passport, a security questionnaire, an autobiography, and a non-disclosure receipt.
According to Arab media, the dead Syrian was Mohammed Taha Ismail Al-Abdullah, also known as Hammadi Taha Al-Buta.
Wagner’s CVC is an unofficial armed group that is associated with businessman Prigozhin. His mercenaries are believed to be providing security services in several African countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, Libya, Madagascar, Angola, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and CAR. According to some reports, they also took part in the fighting in Donbas, Syria and were on their way to Sudan to support President Omar al-Bashir.
