Sicko Satanic cannibal who butchered two teens praised by Putin for Ukraine heroics

Nikolay Ogolobyak, 33, has now been sprung by the strongman for his military service.
Nikolay Ogolobyak, 33, has now been sprung by the strongman for his military service.
Russian despot Vladimir Putin is calling a Satanic cannibal who ate two children a hero for his actions fighting in Ukraine.


Nikolai Ogolobyak, 33, has now been sprung by the strongman for his military service. He had been caged 20 years for the dismemberment slayings of two teens, whom he later devoured.


The twisted monster was the oldest member of a coven of seven Satanists in Yaroslavl.

According to the U.K. Sun, the devil worshippers would recite a Satanic text they found on the internet before engaging in their macabre activities.

They murdered three girls and one boy who were 16 and 17 years old. Previously, they engaged in animal sacrifices and grave robbery.

VICTIMS: Anna Gorokhova, 16, Olga Pukhova, 15, Vavara Kuzmina, 16. FEDERAL POLICE
VICTIMS: Anna Gorokhova, 16, Olga Pukhova, 15, Vavara Kuzmina, 16. FEDERAL POLICE
Each of the teens was first drugged and then stabbed 666 times, dismembered and roasted on a bonfire in a vile two-night rite. The teens’ limbs, scalps, breasts and genitals were severed and hearts removed.


When they were done killing, the killers bathed in their victims’ blood and took selfies with the mutilated corpses.

At the crime scene, cops found the parts in a pit along with a crucified rodent.

Anna Gorokhova, 16, Olga Pukhova, 15, Vavara Kuzmina, 16, and Andrei Sorokin, 16, all disappeared in June 2008. Their bodies weren’t found until the middle of August.

As cops moved in, ending a grinding two-year-long probe, cult members told detectives the devil would protect them because of their “sacrifices to him.”

Ogolobyak was convicted in two of the murders and sentenced to 20 years in a maximum security prison.


But then along came the disastrous war in Ukraine and Putin was looking for cannon fodder. He found it in the Russian gulags where violent convicts were offered cash and freedom if they survived.


Ogolobyak survived and is now free but disabled.

His father told media: “He served there for six months in Storm Z … After being wounded (he is) disabled. He can walk, but the wound was serious … he is recovering. It is unlikely that they will take him to the (war) again.”

Reports say that so far more than 30 people have been murdered in Russia by killers who were sprung to serve in the military.

Meanwhile, a sickening Russian scheme to turn nearly 50,000 female convicts into baby-making machines is echoing the chillingly dystopian Handmaid’s Tale. The result will be more soldiers for future wars.

The troubling approach is being boosted by Russian State Duma Deputy Valery Seleznev, who would have the female prisoners released so they could become pregnant. At the end, if they’re with child, the vassals would be released.


Failure would mean a return to the penal colonies.

The machinations come as Russia’s birthrate is in freefall. Since the first year of fighting in Ukraine, the population has dropped by 550,000.

Seleznev said: “The state can offer them a kind of deal in which a woman’s prison sentence time is interrupted and if she gives birth during such ‘leave,’ the rest of the prison time is cancelled.

“The highest goal and destiny of a woman is to create a family and give birth to children. Let’s speak frankly — we gave such an opportunity to men, based on the same principles of the highest atonement – the readiness to give their lives for the Motherland, leaving prisons earlier to fight against the terrible enemy in the Special Military Operation.

“Why do we deprive women of the opportunity to atone for their guilt?”

Russian human rights activist Eva Merkacheva called the evil plot “insane.”

Edmonton paramedic believed killed in Ukraine was caring, humble: Family

An Edmonton man was killed earlier this month while serving as a medic with the Ukrainian military, say family members who describe him as a caring and humble son, brother and husband.


Joshua Mayers, 34, went to Ukraine in September to offer his help during Russia’s nearly two-year long invasion. He had previously worked as a paramedic in Alberta, including nearly 10 years with Alberta Health Services.


“He was his own person. He never bragged about anything he ever did,” his mother, Janet Penner Epp, said in a phone interview.

“A lot of his heroic stories I heard from other people that were in his life.”

The family was told Mayers had been sent out with a group of soldiers to protect a tree line two weeks ago near the eastern city of Bakhmut.

Six military members, including Mayers, headed out into a drizzly and dark night when it is believed a drone discovered the crew, said Penner Epp.

The Ukrainian Embassy in Ottawa said Mayers was reported missing.


“On Nov. 10, 2023, Canadian citizen Joshua Mark Mayers, who served in the military unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, was reported missing in action in the vicinity of Klishchiivka, Donetsk region,” the embassy said in an email.

It added that it is in contact with his family and will continue to provide all available information.

Global Affairs Canada said it’s aware of an incident involving a Canadian in Ukraine, and officials are working with local authorities and providing consular assistance. The department said it knows of nine Canadians who have been killed in Ukraine since the Russian invasion.

The family was notified of Mayers’ death on Nov. 12 in what Penner Epp calls a “blessing of an accident.”

She said one of her son’s co-workers in Edmonton was in a group chat with his military colleagues in Ukraine, and some said Mayers had died in a drone strike.


“That is the only way we know that he has passed away. Otherwise, all we would know right now is he’s missing in action,” said Penner Epp.

“I’m so thankful that we know the truth.”

Mayers married his wife, Cathryn, last year. He loved camping, hiking and playing board games with his wife, friends and two younger siblings, said Penner Epp.

He was a great brother and friend who spent his life wanting to help others, said his brother Matt Mayers.

“I think that was part of his motivation for going.”

He said the two brothers exchanged emails, but Joshua Mayers shielded his younger brother from the brutalities of the war.

Matt Mayers said he later heard from those who knew his brother in Ukraine, who said the paramedic had been going through a range of emotions.


“He was scared. The last few weeks, the place that he was at was being shelled a lot. He was excited for the adventure, but also nervous.”

Irvin Mayers said his son was a “textbook big brother” who wanted to make a difference in the world.

Joshua Mayers worked as a lifeguard as a teen. As an adult, he worked as a paramedic in rural Alberta before joining Alberta Health Services.

The provincial health agency offered its condolences.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague … we have offered supports and resources to those at Alberta Health Services who are impacted by this loss,” it said in an email.

Mayers felt compelled to join the battle in Ukraine after feeling he wasn’t doing enough to help people, his family said.


In the summer, he told his parents of his plans.

“My stomach did a somersault, but I knew by the time he told me that he had made up his mind,” said his mother.

“So I told him I would always love him and I would always support him.”

The family said they’re unsure if or when they will be able to bring his body back to Canada. Irvin Mayers said they were told two army members tried to retrieve his son’s body and were killed in the process.

“The fighting is advanced and the Russian front has moved past where he was. So, there’s no opportunity for the Ukrainian military to recover him.”

An online fundraiser has been started to help cover immediate expenses for Mayers’ wife.

The family is planning a celebration of life in Edmonton for next week.

Public hearings to probe hero's welcome for man who fought in Nazi unit: Report
Author of the article:postmedia News
Published Nov 23, 2023 • Last updated 1 day ago • 2 minute read

A public hearing has been approved to look into how a Canadian man who fought in a Nazi unit in the Second World War was given a hero’s welcome in Parliament.


The Procedure and House Affairs Committee agreed to the probe on Tuesday, according to minutes of a closed meeting obtained by Blacklock’s Reporter, “given the hurt and international embarrassment created by allowing a former soldier of a Nazi military unit in World War II to attend and be recognized during the President of Ukraine’s special address to Parliament on September 22.”


The committee studies and reports on the rules and practices of the House and its committees, electoral matters, questions of privilege, MP conflicts of interest, internal administration of the House, and services and facilities for MPs.

Liberal MPs had voted against the investigation.

MP Anthony Rota, who resigned as House Speaker over the incident on Sept. 26, will not be summoned.



The committee will instead question Parliament Hill police and protocol officers, the House Sergeant At Arms, staff from the Prime Minister’s Office and Privy Council, and executives with the Ukrainian Canadian and Canadian Polish Congresses.

The motion will require “all emails, memoranda or other documents transmitted between the Speaker’s Office or House of Commons administration” surrounding the incident.

“Deal with this matter openly and transparently to get to the bottom of one of the greatest international embarrassments,” Conservative MP Michael Cooper, who sponsored the motion, earlier told the committee.

Yaroslav Hunka, 98, of North Bay, Ont. was given a standing ovation in the House of Commons on Sept. 22.


“We have here in the chamber today a Ukrainian-Canadian war veteran from the Second World War who fought for Ukrainian independence against the Russians and continues to support the troops today even at his age of 98,” Speaker Rota said at the time. “His name is Yaroslav Hunka.”

“I am very proud to say he is from North Bay and from my riding of Nipissing-Temiskaming,” said Rota. “He is a Ukrainian hero, a Canadian hero, and we thank him for all his service. Thank you.”

It was later revealed that Hunka was a volunteer with the Nazi’s 14 Waffen SS Grenadier Division that fought Russia.

The Russian drone attack today comes on 90th anniversary of Stalin’s man-made Holodomor famine that killed millions of Ukrainians between 1932-33.

“Conscious terror,” Zelensky said of the attack & timing of it. “The leadership of Russia is proud of the fact that it can kill.”

74 is quite possibly the highest number of aerial targets shot down in a single air raid in history

The Germans lost 58 aircraft to enemy fire during Battle of Britain Day, the US lost 60 B-17s over Schweinfurt in October 1943

Three Russians killed in Ukraine after eating poisoned food: Report
Author of the article:postmedia News
Published Nov 24, 2023 • 1 minute read

Three members of Russia’s military who are part of the occupying forces in Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia region were reportedly killed recently after eating poisoned food.


Ukrainian online news outlet Rubryka reports Russian soldiers stationed in Melitopol ate food and drank alcohol ordered from a cafe that was seasoned with arsenic and rat poison.


“The elimination of the enemy is carried out not only by explosions, missile strikes, but also by resistance forces,” said Ivan Fedorov, the city’s mayor, who reported news of the Russian deaths during a TV broadcast, according to a translation by the New York Post.

“The other day, there was another group of eliminated enemies, namely poisoned ones. Enemy Telegram channels are even writing about it: they ordered food in a cafe and after eating it, they all got poisoned, and some of them died.”



Fedorov, who is in exile, boasted about the act of resistance during the update.

“This is the effective resistance that continues to be exerted in Melitopol even under occupation.”

However, Russian Telegram news channel Kremlevskaya Tabakerka reported three employees of Russia’s Federal Security Service died from the poisoning and one, an officer, was in critical condition in intensive care.

The report also said Russian investigators were trying to locate the person who delivered the meals after a search of the cafe didn’t turn up any poison.
