The White House is considering the possibility of recognizing the Russian PMC “Wagner” as a foreign terrorist organization.
This is reported by Ukrinform with reference to Bloomberg.
However, according to the publication’s sources, the Biden administration has not yet made a final decision on this issue.
The status of a foreign terrorist organization would allow the United States to prosecute PEC Wagner and its members, as well as seize its assets around the world. As noted, the “Wagnerians” play an important role in Russia’s hostilities against Ukraine, and are also strengthening their presence in Africa.
As you know, the mercenaries of the “Wagner” PMC, the owner of which is a close ally of Putin, Yevgeny Prigozhin, take part in military conflicts all over the world – from Syria to Mozambique and the Central African Republic.
