Wagnerians fly from Africa to Moscow

Jul 7, 2023

Several hundred Wagner PMC fighters are returning from the Central African Republic (CAR) to Moscow. This was reported on Thursday, July 6, by the African publication Jeune Afrique.


Does this mean that they can go up against the Kremlin while they are already in Moscow, especially since Prigozhin himself is now in Russia? It is unlikely because the same plane can be "properly met" or even destroyed in the air. If the Russian government allows it to fly, it means that it does not believe in a repeat of the rebellion.

According to journalists, about 500-600 mercenaries of the Wagner PMC have left the capital of the Central African state of Bangui in recent hours.

"Two flights took off from Mpoko Airport in the Central African capital and headed for Moscow, Russia," the report says.

According to the publication, other flights with Wagner's men are being prepared for departure at the airport, which will also fly to Russia.

It should be noted that the Wagner PMC mercenaries arrived in the Central African Republic (CAR) on March 31, 2018. However, according to pro-Kremlin media, it is likely that instead of the Wagnerites, Moscow will offer the CAR authorities other mercenaries, more loyal to the Kremlin, who will replace the Wagner PMC in the African country.

The Central African Republic, being one of the poorest countries in the world, has significant reserves of diamonds, gold, and uranium.

Earlier it was reported that the Wagner PMC would move to Belarus, but today Lukashenko said that Prigozhin is not in the country, neither are the Wagner members, and in general they are ready to provide them with an old military camp, but nothing new is being built
