I was interested recently hearing of more from the Russian mercenary army known as The Wagner Group or Vagner. Russia may have started another similar group known as The Patriots. They are apparently getting heavily into Libya of all places. Another oil rich zone. You may recall the downing of that Malaysian passenger jet over Crimea during the Russian takeover from the Ukraine bout 3 years back before Trump. The Wagner group was "helping" the disorganized Russian speaking rebels to try to bring down the legitimate Ukrainian govt, and ended up embroiled in controversy. Russia took the Crimea away from the Ukraine. It was the Wagner group that attacked the US forces embedded with the Kurdish resistance in the OIL FIELDS area of Northern Syria. They got slaughtered for that stupidity. They are involved in Syria, heavily. They were brought in in greater numbers when Russia did the "pullout" briefly (Putin was facing election back home) of Syria. That was a public relations move, which allowed Russia to embed more of it's unofficial army in Syria while claimed to reduce regular army numbers all for a giant PR move. Oddly they are also involved in the Sudan aka CUSH if you are thinking Ez 38 like I am. The Wagner group's activities are murky. Russian reporters who report on them die in mysterious circumstances. They seem to be used as advance armed forces to travel to areas where Russia wants what is called Plausible Deniability. So Putin can wash his hands in public, pretending that these are "volunteers" acting on their own. Poking around I saw this article from about 6 weeks ago and it has the best analysis I've seen and seems pretty credible. It certainly lines up with what I'm hearing from other sources, thus lending credibility to the possibility we may be seeing Russia moving into Libya soon. But let's call it PUT like Ezekiel did. And then there is the involvement in the Sudan or as Ezekiel called it CUSH. Interesting.
