The head of the Russian private military company, Wagner, has revealed that the company has a former US general helping the Russian war against Ukraine. The PMC has been involved in as many as four continents securing Russian interests in multiple regions of the world.
The Invisible Hand Of Putin
Wagner is a Russian private military company that recruits from all around the world in order to secure Russian security interests. The company was founded in 2014 by Yevgeny Prigozhin, one of the closest friends of Putin, the Russian president. The company has also been accused of interfering in the US presidential elections of 2016 and also of human rights violations in Syria and Ukraine.
Allies Working For The Group
It was not the case until the head of the organization clearly said that the group has recruited multiple European soldiers including an ex-US General without disclosing their names. The group has soldiers from Finland, recruited in a British battalion and are “commanded by a US citizen, a former general of the Marine Corps,” Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the company said on Friday.
