The publication notes that the increase in the territory of the cemetery coincides with the bloody offensive of Russian soldiers and mercenaries to gain a foothold in eastern Ukraine.
The US government claims that Wagner’s battlefield casualties were “in the thousands and 90% of them were prisoners recruited to fight in exchange for release from prison.”
