“Russia’s Wagner Group private military company has captured a man in Ukraine who identified himself as a Russian lieutenant colonel and forced him to confess on video to opening fire on Wagner mercenaries.

The video shows Lt. Col. Roman Venevitin, commander of Russia’s 72nd Brigade, being interrogated as if he were a captured member of Ukraine’s military.

In the video, Venevitin tells his off-camera interrogator that he fired on a car that belonged to Wagner forces while he was drunk ‘due to personal animosity.’ He further says that he and between 10 and 12 of his soldiers disarmed a Wagner quick response force.”
