Satanic cannibal jailed for eating two children freed by Putin for fighting in war
He only served 13 years of his 20 year sentence.
Nikolay Ogolobyak, 33, has been hailed a hero by the Russian president.
He was the oldest among a sect of Satanists in Yaroslavl and in all four were convicted of grotesque crimes.
The Satanists killed three girls and one boy aged between 16 and 17 after engaging in animal sacrifices and digging up human graves.
Each of the teenagers were drugged and stabbed 666 times with daggers, dismembered and then cooked on a bonfire in a revolting Satanist ritual conducted over two nights.
The criminals including Ogolobyak recited a Satanist text found on the Internet.
Their limbs, hearts, scalps, breasts and genitals were cut off and were recovered in a pit along with the body of a small rodent crucified on an upside-down cross.
Anna Gorokhova, 16, Olga Pukhova, 15, Vavara Kuzmina, 16 and Andrei Sorokin, 16, went missing in June 2008 and their bodies were only found in the middle of August.
They were declared victims of ‘brutal ritualist child murders’ by a Russian court after a mammoth two year criminal investigation.
Ogolobyak was found guilty of murdering two people, and of desecration of the bodies and burial places of the dead.
He was sentenced in 2010 to 20 years in a maximum security penal colony.
He was due to be released in 2028 at the age of 39 but he signed up for Putin’s war in Ukraine – knowing if he served six months and avoided death, he would be a free man.
A convict can only be pardoned and released with Putin’s personal signature.
Ogolobyak’s father admitted his son was wounded in the war and was now free.
‘It’s true,’ he said.
‘He served there for six months in Storm Z…. After being wounded [he is] disabled.
‘He can walk, but the wound was serious It is unlikely that they will take him to the [war] again. He returned on November 2.’

The other Satanists were under 18 and given lesser sentences.
Konstantin Baranov and Alexander Voronov were locked up for ten years in a general regime colony, Alexey Solovyov and Alexey Chistyakov for nine years, and Ksenia Kovalyova for eight years.
Sergei Karpenko was sentenced to two years in a penal colony and Anton Makovkin was diagnosed with schizophrenia and prescribed compulsory psychiatric treatment.
Satanist Ogolobyak – who received the longest jail term – is now living with his mother.
Details of his war service and wounding have not been disclosed.
The release of rapists and murderers after fighting for Putin is causing rising alarm in regions across Russia.
Already, more than 30 people have been killed by pardoned returnee convicts freed from jail to fight in the war.
Of the convicts who died, Putin said: ‘They gave their lives for their Motherland and atoned for their guilt.’
