"Deserter with machine gun who shot policeman in Russia turns out to be Wagner Group soldier"

From Ukrainska Pravda December 7, 2022. Ukrainian Truth.

"A deserter who opened fire at a policeman from a machine gun on 6 December was detained in Rostov Oblast (Russia); according to the information from the media outlets, it appears to be a soldier of the Wagner Group, recruited from one of the penal colonies earlier."

Source: "Vasiliy Golubev, Governor of Rostov Oblast, on Telegram; Baza, a Russian media outlet with sources in the security services; Kremlin-aligned news outlet RIA Novosti

Quote from Golubev: "'The criminal is detained. As a result of coordinated operational-search activities, he was detected in an empty building near Novoshakhtinsk. Investigative actions are conducted.'"

Details: "RIA Novosti outlet, citing the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, reported that the detained soldier is 38 years old and was born in another region."

"According to the data from Baza outlet, this detained deserter is Pavel Nikolin, a soldier of the Wagner Group."

"He was serving a sentence for theft and robbery at the Penal Colony No.4 [city of Ufa, Russia]. He was recruited to the Wagner Group there. But Nikolin changed his mind about going to war on 24 November and escaped."
