The United States does not see a threat to NATO from the Wagner Group mercenaries.

This was stated by John Kirby, Strategic Communications Coordinator for the National Security Council, Voice of America reports.

According to the White House spokesman, "the United States is not aware of any specific threat that the Wagner PMC poses to Poland or other NATO allies." He added that the United States is monitoring this closely.


Kirby noted that, according to available information, some Wagnerites have traveled to Africa "to try to increase instability there," some are still in Ukraine, and some have moved to Belarus.

He also reaffirmed Washington's commitment to its obligations under Article 5 of the NATO treaty, recalling the words of US President Joe Biden that the US will defend every inch of NATO territory.
