PMC "Wagner" has stopped the recruitment of mercenaries in Russia: in the State Duma made a statement amid rumors of a new wave of mobilization
PMC "Wagner" stopped the recruitment of new mercenaries in Russia. They explained it by their move to Belarus and the cessation of participation in the war against Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Duma made a statement amid rumors of a new wave of mobilization. This is reported in the Russian media.
"In connection with the temporary non-participation of the PMC "Wagner" in a "special military operation" and their move to the Republic of Belarus, we temporarily suspend the work of regional centers to recruit for the PMC "Wagner" for a month," reads the statement of the PMC.
It is noteworthy that within a week after the armed mutiny Yevgeny Prigozhin, the PMCs continued to recruit mercenaries all over Russia.
At the same time, the head of the State Duma Defense Committee Andrei Kartapolov said that a new wave of mobilization in connection with the withdrawal of Wagner from Ukraine is allegedly not going to be announced.
"No new wave of mobilization will be required. Russian President (Vladimir Putin, - ed.) clearly, clearly and specifically said that there will be no new mobilization, there is a planned recruitment of servicemen on contract, there is a planned formation of (military, - ed.) formations and units, including the reserve, their training. There is no need for mobilization today and in the near future," he said.
As a reminder, as of July 1 there was no information about the presence of the Wagner group on the territory of Belarus.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner Group, agreed to some activities in Belarus after the attempted mutiny in Russia on June 24. He was persuaded to do so by the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko. Information about what Prigozhin would do there was not published.
Soon Lukashenko said that the commanders of the private army of Belarus "will adopt the experience," and satellites recorded a new field camp near Osipovichi (Mogilev region), which can accommodate eight thousand people.
As reported earlier by OBOZREVATEL, propagandists in Russia, apparently, began a campaign to discredit the Wagner PMC after the "march on Moscow". Thus, the Kremlin's Channel One broadcast a story in which the effectiveness of the Wagner military was called "a myth" and, at the same time, praised the regular army of Russia.
