February 16, 2023, 13:18 – BLiTZ – News Russian fighter Dmitry Yakushchenko said he was going to continue to fight in the ranks of the Russian private military company (PMC). After the expiration of the contract, he intends to visit relatives and then return to duty.
Yakushchenko said that he decided to join the PMC, because he had to serve 15 years out of 19 in prison. This information was distributed by the WarGonzo Telegram channel.
In mid-February, a video appeared on the Internet, on the basis of which it could be concluded that Yakushchenko had been executed. Subsequently, entrepreneur Yevgeny Prigozhin stated that it was a staged video, and as evidence he first published a video with Yakushchenko, and then he himself appeared with him in the frame.
According to Prigozhin, the Russian was captured, lost his way, and “on the orders of the PMC, he lied and memorized everything he could see.” Yakushchenko said that he “said a lot of superfluous things”, but was forgiven.
