Wagner may be smuggling weapons from Mali - US
« on: May 26, 2023, 07:44:42 am »
Russian private military group Wagner may be operating via Mali and other African countries to hide its attempts to get military equipment for Moscow's war against Ukraine, US officials say.

A Treasury Department statement said the group's employees may have been trying to procure mines, drones, radar and other equipment for the war.

Wagner is known to be operating in some African countries including Mali.

The statement also announced sanctions on Wagner's Mali chief Ivan Maslov.

Meanwhile its overall boss Yevgeny Prigozhin has accused Russia's defence ministry of failing to provide his personnel with weapons and ammunition for operations in Ukraine.

Wagner has led Russia's offensive in the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, though it began withdrawing on Thursday in order to hand control over to the Russian military.

The US accusations suggest it might be trying to exploit the abundance of arms in Mali. The country saw an influx of weaponry after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya in 2011, as mercenaries fighting for the former leader returned home.

Earlier this year, the US designated Wagner as a transnational criminal organisation. Prigozhin and other Wagner leaders are already subject to sanctions.

The group has been providing Mali's military government with assistance in the fight against Islamist insurgents.

Mr Maslov is seen as a key figure in Wagner, working with Malian officials to build Wagner's presence.
