""Russina" Veterans To Ask Hague Court To Probe "Russia"'s Use Of Mercenaries
Reuters is reporting that Russian military veterans will ask the International Criminal Court to investigate Russia's alleged secret deployment of civilian contractors to fight in Syria, Ukraine, and Africa.

Reuters quoted Russian paramilitary leader Yevgeny Shabayev as saying on November 9 that more than a dozen Russian veterans organizations plan to write to Fatou Bensouda, prosecutor at The Hague-based court, which investigates war crimes, about Russia's alleged illegal recruitment of civilians to fight in the Kremlin's wars abroad.

Russia has repeatedly denied reports that thousands of Russian private contractors have fought alongside government forces in Syria, eastern Ukraine, and elsewhere. But contractor sources maintain that more than 100 Russian civilians have been killed in Syria alone.

One of the most prominent Russian mercenary companies, ChVK Vagner, is owned by oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, who has close personal ties to President Vladimir Putin."

"Russian" vets seek to bring the Kremlin's mercenaries in from the cold (appeal to The Hague-based court)
Moscow (CNN)A forum representing Russian military veterans took an unusual step Sunday by voting to ask the International Criminal Court to probe the Russian government's use of private military contractors in deployments abroad.
The veterans agreed to submit an appeal to Fatou Bensouda, the prosecutor at The Hague-based court, over Russian civilians being used as private military contractors in hotspots around the globe. The conflict zones include Syria, Libya, sub-Saharan Africa and eastern Ukraine.
The Russian government officially does not acknowledge using private military contractors to advance foreign policy, and mercenary activity is prohibited by law. But earlier this year, after US airstrikes killed and injured dozens of Russian military contractors in Syria, the families of some of the dead began to come forward, creating a public-relations conundrum for the Kremlin.
