The Ukrainian security website has reported that the head of the Russian Wagner Group paramilitary organization has been charged in absentia. The suspect, who was not identified, will be prosecuted for encroachment on the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Military expert Boris Rozhin wrote in his Telegram channel that “the level of greatness of the “unnamed leader” is already exaggerated to fantastic proportions.”

“He is also accused of the actual defeat of parts of several brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU.) Of course, it will be impossible “to notify him that he is a suspect” since he defeats Ukrainian army brigades so easily,” Rozhin said ironically.

He believes that Ukraine is trying to join a propaganda campaign amid Western press allegations about Wagner Group’s operations in Africa and the Middle East.

“The French wonder why Mali is giving them the bum’s rush while inviting “a military commander who helped defeat the AFU near Debaltsevo,” Rozhin said.

He recalled that the foreign ministers of 12 EU countries, as well as Britain, Norway, and Canada prepared a joint statement in which they expressed regret over Mali's decision to cooperate with the Wagner Group.

“The SBU says that the AFU was defeated near Debaltsevo because the private military organization [Wagner Group] had joined the enemy. In this case, as we know, American PMCs (Greystone, GreenGroup, etc.) also fought on the side of the AFU during the war. However, they did not achieve any significant military successes for some reason during the intensive phase of combat operations and did not organize any encirclements. Then Wagner mercenaries came and walloped the AFU,” writes Rozhin.

Spinning the story that the Wagner Group defeated the AFU in Debaltsevo, the Security Service of Ukraine, on the one hand, downplay the role of the AFU. It turns out that the Wagner Group defeated the regular armed forces of Ukraine. Thus, Kyiv is promoting the Wagner Group, he said.

“The defeat of the AFU near Debaltsevo is also recorded in the portfolio. The French wonder why Mali is giving them the bum’s rush while inviting “a military commander who helped defeat the AFU near Debaltsevo,” Rozhin said.
