In Crimea, volunteers are being trained to perform tasks within the framework of a special military operation, the formation of new battalions continues, the Moscow-appointed governor of the peninsula annexed by Russia, Sergey Aksyonov, announced.

“We are fully providing them with equipment, means of protection, communications and intelligence. The process is underway, we are trying to have everyone go fully equipped,” Aksyonov wrote on his Telegram channel on Thursday, as quoted by Russia’s Interfax news agency.

He adds that he supports the initiative of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who called on Russian regions to start preparing volunteers for Ukraine. Earlier in the week, Kadyrov called on Russian regions to gather and train volunteers for the war, each providing at least a thousand.

“All the tasks of the special military operation will be fulfilled. And each of us can contribute to our common cause in our place,” the head of Crimea said in his post.

Meanwhile, the founder of the Russian private army “Wagner” Yevgeny Prigozhin is recruiting soldiers for Ukraine from among prisoners.

A video, confirmed by the BBC, shows Prigogine promising prisoners a commuted sentence in exchange for service in his group.

“If you serve six months (at Wagner) you are free,” he says. But he also warns them that “if you arrive in Ukraine and decide it’s not for you, we will execute you.”

He also informed the inmates of Wagner’s rules forbidding alcohol, drugs and “sexual contact with local women, flora, fauna, men – everything.”
