Russia’s getting pushed to the corner, and apparently, Putin’s military is reaching out to mercenaries to do the job. 

According to a UK intelligence report released earlier this week, the Russian military is closely coordinating with Wagner Group, a private military contractor. SOFREP previously reported about the Wagner Group and their intensified operations in Africa. 

Owned by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Wagner Group has close ties to Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin is also known as “Putin’s chef.” We also reported here in SOFREP that his group has never had a contract that Kremlin did not approve.
