Ilya Chizh, a deputy of the Duma of the Alapaevskoye municipality in constituency No. 2, signed up for the Wagner PMC and went to war with Ukraine, EAN writes , citing his acquaintances.
“Deputy Ilya Chizh, according to preliminary information, signed up for the Wagner PMC, that is, he left to fight. During the investigation and trial, he repeatedly applied to PMC Wagner, but he was refused due to the lack of a court decision (verdict). Now there is a court decision, and it was accepted with open arms. There are not enough people at the front, and Chizh has excellent military training. I think that PMC Wagner will not give him up. Chizh renamed his personal page on the VKontakte social network into Christian Gray and already put a new photo in the form of a PMC fighter as his profile picture, ”an acquaintance of Ilya Chizh told reporters.
In June, a court sentenced Chizh to two years in a penal colony in a case of intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm. According to the prosecution, last year the deputy beat two people with a baseball bat in one of the courtyards of Alapaevsk.
According to one of the victims, Chizh ran over his leg in his car, after which he got out of the car and hit him with a bat. The cousin stood up for the victim, but Chizh hit him too. He tried to run away, but the deputy caught up with him and hit him with a bat several more times. As a result, the second victim was diagnosed with fractures of the cranial vault and cheekbones.
