David Kasatkin, a lieutenant of the Azov* Battalion, who threatened to kill the mother of the Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, is alive. He remains in a penal colony in the Donetsk People's Republic, RTVI reports.
According to the publication, Kasatkin was fascinated by Chechnya. Answering a question from one of his subscribers in social media, the Azov* fighter said that he admired the Chechens.
"I've read all literature about the Chechen wars. When the war broke out there, 93 percent of Chechen men went to fight. We had only five [in Ukraine]. They had the same situation as we are having now,” Kasatkin said.
At the same time, the Azov* lieutenant repeatedly insulted the President of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. He called him a shaitan and threatened to cut off his mother's head. He later deleted the post. "I can't comment on war and politics,” Kasatkin explained.
David Kasatkin surrendered along with other soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) at the Azovstal plant. It was reported that Kasatkin was taken to a pre-trial detention center in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, for a conversation with Kadyrov. However, such reports found no confirmation.
The publication, citing sources in the DPR administration, said that Kasatkin was imprisoned at Volnovakha Colony No. 120.
"He is alive and well. He sleeps, goes for walks, gets food three times a day. He goes to the dining room with his friend Frost. There were no complaints from him," RTVI said adding that there were 2,300 prisoners from Azovstal at the colony.
