Vladimir Putin Offers Pardon to ‘Werewolf’ Serial Killer for Joining Ukraine War

Vladimir Putin has enlisted Russia’s most notorious serial killer to participate in his conflict in Ukraine, according to information obtained by RadarOnline.com.

Mikhail Popkov, who is infamous as “the Werewolf,” has been given the chance to clear his horrendous criminal record if he can endure six months on the front lines of the Ukraine war.

Popkov, a former police officer and security guard, was convicted of 22 murders spanning decades in 2015 and sentenced to life imprisonment. While in prison, the Werewolf admitted to an additional 59 murders.

In December 2018, three years later, Popov was found guilty of 56 of the 59 murders he confessed to, resulting in an additional life sentence.

All of these convictions could potentially be erased from his record if he joins Putin’s war effort.

The Daily Star reports that Popov might be pardoned for his loyalty to Russia and Putin if he survives six months of combat in Ukraine. This move is part of Putin’s efforts to bolster his dwindling forces as the conflict in Ukraine continues.

Serial Killer’s Potential Pardon in Putin’s War Sparks Outrage

Vladimir Putin has enlisted Russia’s most notorious serial killer to participate in his conflict in Ukraine, according to information obtained by RadarOnline.com.

While the practice of sending convicted criminals, including murderers and rapists, to fight in Putin’s war in exchange for pardons has been reported previously, Popov’s potential release and expungement is a shocking development for nearly 100 families affected by his atrocious crimes.

Furthermore, Popov abused the authority of his police officer uniform to commit his crimes. He would approach women and offer them rides at night when he was off-duty in Angarsk, then brutally attack his victims with a hammer or an axe before disposing of their bodies.

Popov later told the police that he was “the cleaner,” purging the region of sex workers. Alongside murder, he was also convicted of raping at least 11 women. His crimes earned him the moniker “Angarsk Maniac.”

While Popov is believed to have a high number of alleged victims, police suspect he may confess to even more murders while incarcerated, potentially raising the staggering count to “close to 200.”

During a psychiatric evaluation, Popov was diagnosed with homicidal mania, a condition characterized by an irrational desire to kill someone.
