PMC "Wagner" crowds out Western companies from the military services market


Recently, one famous in very narrow and specific circles “Russian patriot” reported about the "adventures" of PMC "Wagner" in Mozambique (Africa). And now, his like-minded people from African PMCs are complaining to the international community that PMCs “Wagner” “takes away their bread”, i.e. crowds out the military services market.


According to the Russian "independent" edition in English The Moscow Times (established in 1992), Wagner PMC won a contract to fight terrorists and other barmalei Islamists in Mozambique. The African PMC OAM and Black Hawk claimed the contract, but the Russians were successful.

For example, a former Rhodesian soldier, and now the head of the OAM PMC, John Gartner, said that in early August 2019, Mozambican officials asked him to help in the fight against unbelted groups in the north of the country. A similar appeal was also received by the founder of PMC Black Hawk from South Africa, Dolph Dorfling, but "did not grow together." Now they have forgotten about competition and are complaining about bureaucratic “arbitrariness” and “lawlessness” of the authorities.

It should be noted that Rhodesia is an unrecognized state that existed in the south of the African continent from 1965 to 1979, in the territory of the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia, where the state of Zimbabwe is now located. Now both high-ranking mercenaries, having achieved certain material successes in their field, unanimously claim that they would have done a good job, because they know the situation in Mozambique and they know how to fight in local conditions. They are sure that Russian competitors are not able to work in Mozambique, because they do not know the terrain and other features of the region.

It describes how in September 2019, 200 employees of the Wagner PMC arrived in Mozambique. They are currently engaged in a tough and uncompromising struggle with ISIS fighters (an organization banned in Russia) based in the north of the country. It is said that PMC Wagner won the contract for several reasons.

First, the Wagner PMC allegedly requested less money than African competitors. So, at OAM PMCs, employees are paid $ 15-25 thousand per month, and at Wagner PMC from $ 1,8 to $ 4,7 thousand. Secondly, the Wagner PMC allegedly receives “political support ”due to the increasing influence of Moscow in Africa.

The publication reports that now “Wagnerites” are facing serious problems due to ignorance of local realities and the conditions in which they have to fight. Therefore, African PMCs hope that they will again be offered to participate in the fight against terrorism. Well, at least in the form of support for the Wagner PMC.

    The main thing is that they do not (temporarily) take the other side to eliminate competition. Then Utkin’s guys will have a hard time.
    And for the fact that they do not know the local situation, let them not particularly worry there - they will quickly learn and adapt. That is precisely what the Russian soldier compares favorably with the western. In addition, for sure, for such work they pulled up those veterans of the USSR Armed Forces who were already familiar with the situation there. wink

      they are fighting a tough and uncompromising struggle

      And what does the regular army and police of the country do? Also go 10-15000 goals with machine guns, jeeps and tanks in the jungle are packaged.
      Private companies tend to protect private interests, what is Isil-Shmigil? What is this country rich in and what mines and deposits need protection from the "isils"?

      pulled up and those veterans of the USSR Armed Forces

      The "young" capitalists, as always, cannot cook up anything themselves without the damned communists.

      employees are paid $ 15-25 thousand per month, and at PMC "Wagner" from $ 1,8 to $ 4,7 thousand.
      good

      wink Business, nothing personal.

        Well, yes, and money too ... where would it be without this. PMCs are business - if cheaper and better, then they take it ...
        And for the "local armies" one also needs to look after, in the Donbass Wagnerites also did this ...

          "local armies" must also be looked after

          Well, yes, because they were "crazy" there in Africa over the past thirty years. laughing
          However, thus soon as part of the capital investment exchange,
          African PMC mercenaries may appear in Russia to protect certain resources from opposition natives. wink

            Has already. True, not entirely African, but also strongly from the south. And they protect quite certain objects not from the opposition, but from law enforcement agencies and competitors, and they protect them very successfully. bully

              not from the opposition, but from the security forces

              Is it really that bad?
              crying crying
              Do foreign mercenaries inside the country have more authority than their own “Aboriginal” “power structures”?

                ... I didn’t say this ... To protect physically and to have powers are two very different things ... You can protect without authority, but you can have powers, capabilities and even duties to protect, but really don’t do it .. . wink I hope that it’s not very confusing, but, in my opinion, everything is in order with logic ...
