PMC Wagner: Several Russian mercenaries killed by CAR rebels – media

At least one has reportedly been taken

In the Central African Republic, local rebels said they had killed several mercenaries with the Russian Private Military Company Wagner, which is known to operate in multiple hotspots around the globe.

The initial report about the incident came from a local outlet Corbeau News on Monday, February 15.

The deadly clash occurred in one of the villages in the country’s south-western part back February 10, although it was only reported Monday.

The news outlet also says one of the Russian mercenaries has been taken hostage.

“We took a Russian mercenary hostage and killed several more. We also destroyed their truck,” said a rebel spokesman for the anti-government group, the Patriots for Change Coalition.

Wagner has long retained its presence in Central African Republic.

Back in 2019, a CNN reporter said she was targeted by a Russian propaganda campaign following her exclusive report on the country’s activity in Africa and a secretive mercenary group called Wagner.

  1. It is certainly hard to report on anything the ruSSo-slimes are doing in the C.A.R. I expect they are “arming and training” the current government but being allowed to extract gold, diamonds, platinum and uranium in exchange. Pretty damn good deal for the nazis. I’m not surprised THE PEOPLE are fighting back against the thieving fascist imperialists.
