In a week fighting for the city, Dwarf’s company faced conscripted prisoners from Russia’s Wagner group. “We had battles every two hours,” he says. “I guess a single company eliminated 50 people per day.” In case of any doubt, he points out these numbers were confirmed by aerial reconnaissance. “The [Russian vehicle] arrives, 50 bodies come out, a day passes, 50 bodies come out again,” he says. His company lost a fraction of that number, he says.
