Posted on 11/28/2022 7:51:22 AM PST by JonPreston
Yesterday a real information bomb exploded. Russian billionaire, Putin's authorized person and founder of ''PMC Wagner Group'' Yevgeny Prigozhin made a sensational statement. In an interview with journalists from the Finnish newspaper 'Helsingin Sanomat', Yevgeny Prigozhin said that many professional army men from NATO countries, including the US Marine general are fighting on the Side of PMC Wagner Group. At the same time, He also stated that a large number of Finnish citizens are fighting in the so-called British battalion as part of the PMC Wagner Group, the commander of which is a US citizen - retired U.S. Marine Corps general. It should be noted that Yevgeny Prigozhin rarely makes such sensational statements, especially for the Western media. Hardly anyone doubts that foreigners, including Americans, are present in PMC Wagner Group. In any case, it is no secret that a large number of volunteers from all over the world have been fighting in the Donbass for all these eight years on the side of the Russians.

That’s a little confusing. If you’re working for the Wagner Group, you’re not a volunteer. You’re a mercenary.
I wonder how PMCs are making on this?
Bottom line, we stop funding it, the war ends.
What’s the name of this retired U.S. Marine Corps general?
Bottom line, we stop funding it, Russia successfully invades a neighboring country, expanding its borders.
And it will wish to do so again.
NATO was created to defend against Russian expansion.
They'll never say because it could then be easily disproven.
BlackWater -> Xe -> Constellis with numerous sister companies
When NATO was created, the Ukraine was part of the USSR.
“NATO was created to defend against Russian expansion.”
Gravitas Plus: Did NATO push Ukraine into war?
“On Gravitas Plus, Palki Sharma tells you how Western arrogance & NATO’s expansionism are also to blame, how their actions precipitated the crisis in Ukraine.”
I won’t say for generals in Wagner but there are scores of former Marines in NM DPR, including officers.
My estimation that Russian Military that comes out of the Ukraine war will be far more capable is still correct.
Leveraging soldiers for hire and any real military experience to pull itself out of the soviet collapse will mean it will develop a real world experience army.
So because they left out the name (for reasons perhaps to protect this person) then the report must be false? 😂
Figure out which logical fallacy you committed.
The US created the modern PMC during the war on terror. I posted that I think using merc companies was a horrible idea that always leads to blow back.
Got blasted for it on FR.
Now we are seeing more and more former NATO troops go the merc route. It will get worse.
If that statement about a Marine General is true (Which to be fair, I do not believe it is), then it is only what we should expect.
“He also stated that a large number of Finnish citizens are fighting in the so-called British battalion as part of the PMC Wagner Group”
makes total sense: everyone knows how much the Fins have always loved the Russians ...
Well that would just ruin all the ‘fun’ this war has created for the WEF and other elitist scum.
You miss the entire point
The war is being won and Russia is losing big time. The war will continue until Russia is unable to maintain troops in the field and the Russian economy shows a spark of life.
