According to her, law enforcement officers have been investigating this case for several months as the events around the Wagner PMC fighters started in July last year.
"The proceedings were opened, and there were several of them, at several different law enforcement agencies. Then these cases were merged and submitted, in particular to the State Bureau of Investigation," the Prosecutor General said.
According to Venediktova, prosecutors gave instructions to investigators in these proceedings last summer. "The investigation is ongoing," Venediktova said.
