A shocking video circulating on social media, shared by Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor to Ukraine's Minister of Internal Affairs, has unveiled disturbing practices involving Russian soldiers in the Donetsk region.

The video, which has rapidly gained viral status, reveals Russian soldiers being held in a "pit" as a form of punishment for various offenses, including alcohol abuse and refusal to take up positions.

The footage, reportedly captured by the "commanders" of these Russian "soldier-slaves" near Bakhmut, shows the dire conditions in which the soldiers are kept.

They are held in this confined space, with release contingent upon a payment ranging from $1,650 to $11,000 per individual. The revelation that some soldiers have been languishing in these pits for months adds to the gravity of the situation.

The video has sparked widespread outrage and concern, drawing attention to the extreme measures being employed. It highlights the desperate lengths to which some soldiers must go to secure their freedom, including selling personal assets like apartments or cars.

The exposure of these practices through the video provides a harrowing glimpse into the ongoing conflict's darker aspects, raising serious questions about the treatment of soldiers and the ethics of such punitive measures in a war setting.
