The United States is increasing pressure on PMC “Wagner”: how it will hit Prigozhin's company


US increases pressure on Wagner PMC: how it will affect Prigozhin's company

The United States recognizes the Wagner PMC as a transnational criminal organization and will impose new sanctions. This is necessary to make it impossible for them to stay in the West.

Bogdan Ferens, an expert in international relations, a candidate of political sciences, spoke about this forChannel 24. He explained why the US did not recognize Wagner as terrorists.

“Most likely, the United States has legal instruments and mechanisms that are involved after decisions are made. For example, on recognizing a certain organization as terrorist or criminal in the context of transnational crime,” Ferens said.

US law should be taken into account

According to the expert, the US compared different mechanisms and determined that the recognition of a transnational criminal organization can more effectively help to cooperate with European colleagues and their special services. Consequently, this will make it impossible for Wagnerians to operate in Western countries.

However, this is only an assumption. You really need to understand the specifics of national legislation and what services are involved in order to counteract, Ferens noted.

The impact of the US decision

The political scientist believes that the US decision will definitely affect the activities of the Wagnerites and their leader Yevgeny Prigozhin. Participants signing and signing contracts will have a caution in moving around the world. They may be detained on the territory of other countries.

“I hope this will have a significant impact on the spread of the Wagnerites,” the expert emphasized.

Russians are recruiting foreigners

According to Ferens, Russia uses private military campaigns to carry out tasks on the territory of other countries, so it needs to be approached comprehensively. International coordination of different services can fight the expansion of influence of such organizations.

“It is especially important to do this in different countries, because the Russians recruit PMCs. Recently there was information about Serbia, which has certain sentiments towards Russia. It is a matter of maximum prohibition of the expansion of the influence of such organizations. You also need to understand that the enemy can also create clones of PMCs” , – Ferens added.
