Has applied for asylum – Norway releases former Wagner mercenary


An escaped mercenary from Russia’s Wagner Group is released after being arrested in Norway. According to the immigration police, Andrei Medvedev would be released from a detention center on Wednesday provided he remains in a designated place.

Medvedev was arrested on Sunday night. He is said to have been a member of the Wagner group for months in 2022 before fleeing to Norway and seeking asylum. Norway borders Russia in the far north, where Medvedev crossed the border almost two weeks ago, according to Norwegian broadcaster NRK.

Wagner’s mercenaries are executed when they flee
The Wagner Group is owned by oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, also known as “Putin’s cook” because of his good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin recruited thousands of prisoners for the war against Ukraine in Russian prisons. He promised the prisoners that they would be released at the end of their contracts, but at the same time threatened summary executions if they tried to escape.

In a video published on Gulagu.net, Medvedev expressed fears that he would be brutally killed if returned to Russia. However, the Norwegian authorities have not yet indicated their intention to do so. Now he may no longer be detained under the Aliens Act, according to the police’s Aliens Service.
