Wagner Group & FACA

"Russian mercenaries using EU-trained soldiers in Africa"

https://euobserver.com/world/153653

"Russian mercenaries have taken command of at least one EU-trained battalion in the Central African Republic (CAR) to help "predate" the mineral-rich country, according to a leaked report.

"Today, most deployed FACA units are operating under direct command or supervision by WG mercenaries. WG has also established a solid influence on the FACA general staff and other government institutions," the EU foreign service's report, dated 15 November and seen by EUobserver, said.


FACA refers to the Forces Armées centrafricaines, CAR president Faustin-Archange Touadéra's main army of some 12,500 men.

WG stands for Wagner Group, a Kremlin-linked paramilitary force. ..."

If OUR diplomats are anything like their boss Brain Dead Brandon, we the Citizens of the USA have everything to worry about... The reality of the USA being a world leader is GONE BABY GONE....

It's been my recent work experience that they are much in similarity to said Brandon. The stories I could tell if I hadn't signed an NDA.
