Quote from the General Staff: “Up to 300 mercenaries from the Wagner Group (a private military company – ed.) have been hospitalised in Yuvileine’s multidisciplinary hospital No.15.

Doctors are refusing to treat them because many of the fighters are suffering from HIV/AIDS, syphilis, tuberculosis and pneumonia.”

Background: The Institute for the Study of War reported that regular Russian forces are likely replacing exhausted Wagner Group forces to maintain the offensive in Bakhmut.
