Ukraine – Russia. What happens to Russian officers who don’t want to fight, refuse to follow orders?

Russian officers who refused to fight and obey orders on the front of the war with Ukraine were taken to a prison in the Luhansk region, where they were probably murdered, Radio Svoboda reported on Friday, citing the findings of the independent Astra website. At least five officers are known by name.

Russian officers who questioned their superiors’ orders and refused to fight in Ukraine, were detained, arrested in the Luhansk region, and then disappeared. The disobedient military were probably murdered, Radio Swoboda reported on Friday, citing the findings of the Astra website.

We are talking about at least five officers known by name. For example, according to independent media, senior lieutenant Ruslan Levanov refused in July to attack the enemy’s positions and capture the territory controlled by the Ukrainians “at all costs”, without taking human losses into account. The officer therefore wrote a report in which he applied for release from service, after which he was to be transported in the trunk of a car to the “combat capability restoration center”, i.e. the detention center in the occupied town of Brianka in the Lugansk region, reported the imprisoned soldier’s mother, quoted by Radio Svoboda .

Those arrested were “moved to some basement” and then their families lost contact with them. In September, it was reported that these five officers were allegedly killed in July by artillery fire during the fighting. However, according to their comrades-in-arms, rebellious military men may have been murdered during “education classes” at the “re-education center” in Brianka, where torture and physical violence are commonplace, independent media reported.

Arrested, imprisoned, killed

Contract soldiers with Russiathose who no longer want to fight in Ukraine are arrested near Lugansk, independent media reported. Prisoners there are to be fed once a day. No one accepts or considers their reports of refusal to fight, the independent Russian Mediazona portal already alarmed in mid-July.

In November, it was reported that particularly drastic methods were being used at a Kremlin-linked private military company known as the Wagner group. The mercenaries she recruits who desert the front or refuse to continue participating in the Russian invasion of Ukraine are to be punished by death there.
