Norwegian police said on Friday they intend to continue to interrogate former Wagner group commander Andrei Medvedev, who fled from Russia to Norway last month after fighting in the war in Ukraine.

Medvedev, who earlier this week told Reuters he wanted to apologize for fighting in Ukraine, has handed “some digital material” to police, which is being examined, Kripos, Norway’s national criminal police service, said in a statement.

Medvedev remains a witness and is not under any obligation to talk to investigators, Kripos said. Medvedev is not suspected of anything apart from the illegal border crossing.

Security arrangements have been made for Medvedev’s safety, the police added, without giving specifics.
