Putin using ‘female convicts as shock troops as he sends them to die’

PUTIN is throwing freed women convicts into the frontline to die in the war, Ukraine has alleged.

A Kyiv official said the dead bodies of these women – trained to be Russian fighters – are increasingly being found in trenches.

Ukraine alleges that female convicts are being recruited from prisons and are trained to use precision weapons.

And they are all dying fighting Putin’s illegal war amid the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian Government advisor Anton Gerashchenko said: “In the trenches, among the dead occupiers, Russian women from women’s [penal] colonies are increasingly being found.

“There are fewer and fewer [male] prisoners left in Russia who want to die in war – young ladies are thrown into ‘meat assaults’.”

He claims women are tempted to sign the same kind of contracts which have freed tens of thousands of Russian male convicts – including murderers and rapists – to fight in the Ukraine war.

Gerashchenko added that these women agree to get involved “in search of ‘adventure’ and a better life.”

“And then the command decides not to focus on gender issues and uses convicted Russian women as ‘assault fodder’.”

Footage from the Telegram channel Pravda Gerashchenko appears to show dead soldiers at the frontline – but their identities are not independently verified.

Russia is known to have been recruiting some women – not only convicts – for its forces as Putin seeks to boost numbers of fighters. 

A few months ago, some 50 women prisoners from the Siberian region were sent to the conflict zone, it was reported.

Olga Romanova from the Russian Behind Bars Foundation said she had evidence of women being recruited in jails and sent to the front as snipers. 

Some were in a separate unit called ‘She-Wolf’, which included female snipers, she said. 

She added that recruiters from the Russian Defence Ministry visited a women’s colony in Sablino, Leningrad Region and offered women £1,400 to leave jail and train for the front as snipers and other roles. 

Another 30 were taken from a penal colony in Lipetsk, she said. 

A video purports to show women snipers linked to private military company Española – notorious for recruiting Russian football hooligans.

The footage highlights their training before being sent to the war, it was reported.
