Russian paratrooper Pavel Filatiev, who fought against Ukraine and then fled to France, was exposed as being involved in war crimes.
Last year, the Russian human rights organization Gulagu. net helped the military Filatyev, who had been storming the Kherson region for two months as part of the 56th Air Assault Regiment, leave Russia. Later, the man published the anti-war book ZOV 56, where he condemns the war. At first, Filatiev was going to transfer money from the sales of the book to Ukraine, but then he refused to do so.
Today the founder of Gulagu. net said that military evacuation programs were temporarily suspended. It turned out that Filatiev was lying when he spoke about his innocence.
The military man was involved in war crimes committed in Ukraine, in particular, some of the Ukrainians he detained during his service were subsequently killed. Filatiev himself confessed to some war crimes.
Earlier, the paratrooper refused to voluntarily testify to prosecutors and investigators from Ukraine. He asked for political asylum in France, but the decision has not yet been made.
Gulag organization. net helped former Russian military and law enforcement officers escape from Russia and obtain political asylum in Europe. In particular, with their help, Andrey Medvedev, a former Wagner PIK mercenary, left for Norway.
