A Russian businessman, Alex Konanykhin, is offering a reward of $1 million to the officer who arrests “Vladimir Putin as a war criminal under Russian and international laws.”

Alex Knanykhin is a former banker and entrepreneur who was a founder, co-owner, and President of the Russian Exchange Bank.
He announced the bounty for Putin’s arrest on his LinkedIn account Monday.

The post featured a wanted sign that says, “Wanted: dead or alive. Vladimir Putin for mass murder.”

Knanykhin’s caption stated, “Putin is not the Russian president as he came to power as the result of a special operation of blowing up apartment buildings in Russia, then violated the Constitution by eliminating free elections and murdering his opponents.”

Knanykhin explained that he felt it his duty to help Russia.

“As an ethnic Russian and a Russia citizen, I see it as my moral duty to facilitate the denazification of Russia. I will continue my assistance to Ukraine in its heroic efforts to withstand the onslaught of Putin’s Orda,” his post read.

By 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the post on LinkedIn was taken down.
