New Report Paints Disturbing and Ugly Portrait of Wagner PMC Operations in Africa

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Nov. 25 – Yevgeny Prigozhin and his Wagner Private Military Company are attracting ever more attention for their actions in Ukraine and their influence in Moscow, but a fuller and even uglier portrait of what he and his group are about is provided in a new report by the French NGO, All Eyes on Wagner.

            That report focuses on what the Wagner PMC has been doing in Mali over the last years and concludes that it has not been able to protect the government there or provide stability to the population. Instead, it has engaged in mass murder, rape, and other crimes (alleyesonwagner.org/ as discussed at  meduza.io/feature/2022/11/20/boytsy-chvk-vagnera-uzhe-god-nahodyatsya-v-mali-oni-sovershayut-massovye-ubiystva-i-grabyat-mirnyh-zhiteley).

            Those who are considering Prigozhin and the Wagner PMC in the Ukrainian and Russian context should not fail to read the carefully documented report of All Eyes on Wagner or at least the summary provided by Meduza.
