The majority of the Russian PMC is made up of mercenaries from among former prisoners, they also account for the largest percentage of the dead

More than 8,000 mercenaries of the “Wagner” PMC (“League”) are involved in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine. Most of the units are currently located directly in the areas along the battle contact line. The majority of the personnel of the assault squads of the specified PMC are mercenaries recruited from among prisoners.

Their task is to support a smaller group of experienced “contractors”. At the same time, the most significant loss of personnel is made up of ex-prisoners. In order not to be under the threat of “personnel starvation”, “Wagner” is urgently training several hundred additional mercenaries from among prisoners to be sent to the combat zone.
