Aug 14, 2023

Poland's Internal Security Agency (ABW) detained two spies of the Wagner group. They were spreading propaganda in Krakow and Warsaw.

This is reported with reference to Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski on Twitter.

"ABW, in cooperation with the police, identified and detained two Russians who distributed propaganda materials of the Wagner group in Krakow and Warsaw," he wrote.

According to him, they were charged with espionage and arrested.

As a reminder, in late June, the Wagner group attempted a military coup in Russia with an unclear outcome. After that, some of the mercenaries moved to Belarus, and Alexander Lukashenko said that they were preparing for attacks on the territory of Poland.

Polish authorities expressed concern and called on NATO to strengthen its eastern flank.

Meanwhile, in August, stickers calling to join the ranks of Wagner PMC began to appear on the streets of Krakow. The police launched an investigation.
