The presence of the Russian "Wagner" in Africa has long gone beyond Libya, PMCs operate in 14 countries of the continent, writes the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah.

    If so, then it remains to be really proud. This is a real achievement, although it would still be nice to legalize the activities of PMCs in our country.

      What are you proud of? They do not protect the interests of the country and the people there. Roughly speaking, a businessman, for the sake of his selfish interests, hired a professional killer. What does this people get from this? ...

    It would not be bad to understand that Healthy men have to feed their families, someone else does not know how to fight well. It is not because of a good life that people go to solve other people's problems at the cost of their lives. When there is no good job, they take on such a job.

    Take an example from American PMCs. Who doesn't like it? Who is against democracy?
