One of the Wagner PMC battalions is commanded by a retired US Army general


According to the head of Wagner PMC Yevgeny Prigozhin, one of the battalions of a private military company is commanded by a US citizen, a former general of the Marine Corps. The businessman spoke about this in his response to a request from the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.


The PMC operates a "British battalion" commanded by a retired US Army general. About two dozen citizens of Finland are fighting in it. At the same time, Prigozhin has a very high opinion of the fighters from this country - they are very ideological, motivated and show their best side as military specialists.

The day before, one of the Wagner PMC fighters said that rainy and inclement weather in the area of ​​​​the special operation plays into the hands of Russian units and interferes with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It is more difficult for Ukrainian artillery to hit targets in such conditions, since the shells often fall into the mud and there is no explosion. Along with this, unmanned aerial vehicles do not operate in the rain.

Earlier, one of the “Wagnerites” disclosed data that many soldiers of the unit, who were recently imprisoned, are successfully mastering military specialties and combat tactics.

    Original: "fur seal" is fighting against the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    I wonder if they know that an American general is fighting against them?

      He is not fighting against the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but for money and not bad. He doesn't care against whom, as long as they pay.

        I don't think so. Money is money, but then why is he not fighting in an American PMC? They probably pay more.

        This is understandable, the same can be said about the Western "wild geese" fighting on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, no one will fight for an idea there, only for money, and money is not small.

    The author put it all together. From rain and non-exploding shells, motivated Finns and almost the main "fur seal". So what? The outcome of the war will not decide this now.

    In my opinion, Prigogine just laughed at Helsingin Sanomat. Although now I'm not surprised.

    SEAL - special forces of the United States Navy (US Navy)designed for reconnaissance and sabotage operations from the sea.

    “They are fighting in a British battalion (as part of the Wagner PMC), whose commander is a US citizen, former general of the Marine Corps,- said Evgeny Prigozhin.

    Ale, citizens, the US Navy Special Forces and the US Marine Corps are somewhat different "seals".

    So far, not all Europeans have been able to excite Prigozhin's harsh statements, he clarifies. But this is not necessary: ​​after the statement of the European Parliament about its intention to recognize Wagner as a terrorist organization, information about the participation of European citizens in the ranks of the Russian PMC will work as a powerful psychological trigger:

    - Europeans are beginning to think: “Oh, they lied to us!”. While this works only on the outskirts of public consciousness, the official Western media manage to keep the bulk of the population with the help of the “nuclear” agenda. But we do not need to lure all the inhabitants of the European Union to our side. It is enough just to plant a seed of doubt in their heads. This is a great thing. The value of Prigozhin lies precisely in this, - the political strategist believes.

    The most important front is in our brains, and there are no nationalities, there is only one motive, the war against dark forces

    "The question is of course an interesting one," and the answer is even more interesting.

    That's the number!
    But why frame the general like that, they will accuse him of all serious things and give him 500 years.
