Russians Urged to Keep Kids Indoors—as Wagner’s Freed Convicts Come Home

Moscow residents are being bombarded with calls from men identifying themselves as police officers who say all children should be kept inside to protect them from hardened criminals the Wagner Group has set free in the country.

That’s according to the news outlet Baza, which reports that numerous residents have complained of receiving the terrifying calls in recent days. They say people identifying themselves as local police officers, and in some cases a mysterious figure named “Major Solovyov,” have warned that convicts freed by Wagner to wage war against Ukraine are now returning from the battlefield and could fall back into their old, violent ways. Some of them, the purported police officers warn, were serving time for pedophilia-related charges when they were set free by the private army.

Parents have reportedly been asked to spread the word around town about the “dangers” of Wagner’s liberated prisoners. Baza notes that several dozen complaints have been filed against “Major Solovyov” and his colleagues—all of whom are untraceable after apparently doing their best to cover their tracks when making the calls.
