The Russian businessman and owner of the Wagner PMC is ready to take on military service in the ranks of his military formation people who have been treated in neuropsychiatric dispensaries. The Moscow Times writes about this.
As journalists clarify, due to a conflict with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Prigozhin can no longer recruit fighters in the colonies, so he switched to another category of citizens.
In one of the groups of “Wagnerites” in social networks, a message was published stating that in order to join the PMC, certificates from a psychiatrist and narcologist are no longer needed, as well as the passage of fluorography.
The journalist of The Moscow Times, under the guise of a potential fighter, called the hotline of the formation and said that he was allegedly being treated in a psychoneurological dispensary for a nervous breakdown. After that, he was sent a formal instruction with the requirements for recruits and offered to independently evaluate himself according to it. And in the event that he himself does not see any problems, he can sign up for a PMC, said the Wagner recruiter.
The instruction states that citizens who are ill with serious illnesses that “prevent tasks,” as well as people with drug addiction who have recovered from hepatitis B and C, are not taken as recruits. . Medical examination of recruits is also not carried out here: they take only an express blood test and a urine test for drugs.
The “Wagnerites” explain this as an attempt to “avoid unnecessary bureaucracy.”
According to the publication, the PMC is now experiencing an acute personnel shortage.
Recall that on March 5, Yevgeny Prigozhin told what would happen to the Wagner PMC after the battles in Bakhmut. The Russian businessman shared his plans to create an “army with an ideology” and said that no one would stop him from “fighting for Russia.”
