Russians tortured for refusing to fight in Ukraine. ‘Vagner’: the story of shipping containers.

Russians tortured for refusing to fight in Ukraine. ‘Vagner’: the story of shipping containers.

There is a lot of pro-Putin bias in the Western world. We aim to dispel this “macho” propaganda and reveal true colors of his regime: murder, intimidation, industrialized kleptocracy and well-funded russian fascism propaganda machines. We were born in Russia, we have lost friends to this murderer… we see how he “zombifies” most and intimidates and beats down the rest. We also know where his weak spots are and what atrocities his regime is committing on a daily basis.

Message from the source channel owner.

Vladimir Osechkin (Russia) and Vladimir Zolkin (Ukraine) discuss 4 interviews with the Russian POWs – 3 civilians who applied for a job to serve on oil rigs but were tricked to fight in Ukraine instead, and one convict, recruited in a Russian prison with the promise of amnesty. Once in Ukraine, these men become forced laborers, facing tortures in shipping containers and murder if they disobey.

This is a story of how Osechkin and Zolkin are gathering proof for the international war crime tribunal in Hague to try to bring to justice the whole system of military coercion in Russia, from the ground commanders all the way up to Putin – the system that goes back many years. They need our help – “Everything depends on the desire of the civilized global community to bring these criminals to justice”.
