The Wagner mercenary chief has said that thousands of convict conscripts are receiving intense training in preparation for the frontline in Ukraine and have become blood thirsty “cannibals” who will eat Ukrainians.
Yevgeny Prigozhin who is a close ally of Vladimir Putin and owns the private military company the Wagner Group said before they are deployed to the front that they have been turned into “real cannibals.”
Appearing on a video Prigozhin said his most experienced fighters have received “additional training in their specialties” at an area which is a “supplementary training base” for his men who will be sent to the front.

Prigozhin who is a close ally of Putin recruited Russian prisoners to fight in Ukraine in exchange for a pardon over their crimes.
The Wagner mercenaries are known for being brutal and they even kill their own if anyone tries to desert including the prisoners.
A Russian prisoner who caught trying to desert was brutally executed and mercenaries filmed the moment he was killed by a sledgehammer.
Prigozhin said, “It seems to me that this film should be called: ‘A dog dies a dog’s death’. It was an excellent directional piece of work, watched in one breath.
“I hope no animals were harmed during filming.”
Prigozhin then gave a warning to others in Russian society whom he described as traitors trying to desert the war.
Commanders who are in charge of the brutal mercenary group are castrating their members who try to surrender or retreat.
The Wagner Group comprises of former elite soldiers and prisoners who give 180 days of service in return for a pardon for their crimes by Vladimir Putin.
In an intercepted call in December 2022, US intelligence said that they learned a member of the Wagner Group was “castrated” for either trying to retreat or surrender to Ukrainian forces.
The intercepted call heard a Russian soldier say, “The Wagnerians caught him and cut his f**king balls off,” but the video tape was not released.
The Russian public do not care for the mercenary group, as “The deaths of thousands of Wagner soldiers do not matter to Russian society.
“Assault groups do not withdraw without a command… Unauthorized withdrawal of a team or without being wounded is punishable by execution on the spot.”
Wagner mercenaries are also not allowed to help injured comrades and are also not allowed to retreat.
Wagner claim, “Assault infantry is not allowed to carry the wounded off the battlefield on their own, as their main task is to continue the assault until the goal is achieved.
“If the assault fails, retreat is also allowed only at night.”
