Ex-Wagner commander arrested in Norway for attempting return to Russia

  • Former commander of the Wagner mercenary group, Andrei Medvedev, was arrested by Norwegian police for attempting to illegally cross the border back into Russia, contradicting his claim of seeking asylum in Norway earlier this year. His lawyer asserts that there was a misunderstanding, stating that Medvedev was merely trying to locate where he crossed into Norway and was never near the border.
  • Medvedev escaped Russia via its Arctic border with Norway in January, claiming that he feared for his life after witnessing the mistreatment of Russian prisoners in Ukraine. He described running as Russian guards fired shots at him during his escape.
  • The arrest of Medvedev highlights the tense situation surrounding the Wagner mercenary group and their involvement in conflicts overseas, as well as the complexities of seeking asylum and the potential consequences for those involved.
