“Putin’s Citizens in Ukraine’s ‘Freedom of Russia’ Legion Striving to Overthrow Him”

Date:

Russian soldiers who defected to fight for Ukraine said they were motivated by a desire to overthrow Vladimir Putin’s “FSB dictatorship” and free their country from tyranny.

Two fighters — known only by their nicknames “Caesar” and “Quiet” — said in rare interviews from Ukraine’s Bakhmut fronts that they defected from Putin’s army because Russia’s authoritarian regime “is destroying people.”

Men in their 40s are fighting alongside Russian soldiers in the 4,000-strong “Russian Freedom” Corps in Ukraine.

I began to clearly understand that the country was moving in a completely wrong direction and that Putin’s regime – the FSB dictatorship – destroys people not only physically, but also morally. “.

He added: “It does not give people an opportunity to realize themselves and their civil rights.

Caesar, who killed Russian soldiers on the battlefield, told the media important stories: “I clearly began to understand that the country was moving in a completely wrong direction and that Putin’s regime – the FSB dictatorship – is not only destroying people physically. But also morally.

“And this regime, in order to retain power, resorts more and more to repression and leaves the citizens no possibility of a legitimate change of power.”

He calls himself a Russian “nationalist,” saying, “I have trained people from right-wing nationalist organizations who can overthrow the current regime by force of arms.”

Another fighter named Quiet – who earlier completed military service in the Russian army and fought in Chechnya – said: ‘We were trained by the Ukrainian army.

They told us, “Thank you for still being there – (the Russians) have brains and hearts ready to defend (Ukraine)”.

“I have no emotions about the fact that I shot my countrymen,” said a construction worker who lived in pre-war Ukraine, because there are normal citizens and crazy people.

My task is to drive them out of Ukraine, to liberate Crimea.

If they were normal, they would have turned the Kremlin upside down, kicked out all this crap, and lived normally.

Kaiser, who was born in the Russian city of Sochi and is married and has four children, said: “Frankly speaking, I do not want to obtain Ukrainian citizenship and I do not want to stay here.

I love being here, I feel good here, and my soul is calm here because I am doing my Christian military duty.

I protect the people of Ukraine. But at the first opportunity I will go home, if, of course, I survive.

I will return to Russia with weapons to free it from tyranny. I want to live and die in my land.

Quiet, married with two eldest daughters who were born in the Russian city of Tolyatti, said: “(After the war started) my wife and I started volunteering.

When the Kiev region was liberated, we went there to help the wounded.

My wife brought food and clothes. With other men, we pitched a military tent there and dismantled the demolished roofs, and put in the windows.

Kayet said he defected and fought with Ukrainian forces when he saw atrocities committed by Russian forces near Kiev, saying it was horrific to see the bodies of children and women in person.

He was visiting his family near Kiev when he saw the atrocities at Bucha, Irpin and Borodyanka – and decided to stay and fight for the Ukrainian forces.

He said: ‘(When we saw what the Russian army did in the Kiev region), I was completely shocked. We saw the dead bodies of civilians.

I absolutely do not understand how you can be a complete moron, a person who is not satisfied with what you have to be in life to do such a thing – to rape women and children.

How can you even touch children. It’s like they released all the perverts from prison, who were supposed to be in prison all their lives, and sent them (to Ukraine).

You understand Putin’s regime. For 20 years he has been gathering followers and degenerates around him. Now we see the result of this artificial selection.

Since Putin’s forces invaded Ukraine more than a year ago, evidence of war crimes by soldiers has continued to mount. Russia has been accused of raping hundreds of women and girls, as well as killing and torturing civilians in Russian-controlled cities.

Russia has dismissed the Legion as a PR stunt, but the Kremlin recently labeled it a “terrorist organization”.

Russian sources identified Caesar as Maximilian Andronnikov and warned he could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted in Russia.
