The body of Zambian student Lemehani Nyirenda, who fought in the ranks of the Russian army against Ukraine, will be returned home on Sunday.
This was stated by Zambian Foreign Minister Stanley Kakubo, BBC reports.
The body of the deceased student has already arrived in Rostov-on-Don. A Zambian diplomat will accompany him on his way home.
The 23-year-old died in September, but news of the death only came out last month, prompting his family and the Zambian government to demand answers from the Russian authorities.< br />
Lemehani Nyirenda studied in Moscow, but was imprisoned for drugs. He was pardoned “to join the military operation in exchange for an amnesty.”
