Eric Prince interviewed
The notorious Eric Prince in his recent interview tells interesting details about his relationship with Russia.
When the Obama administration pursued a reset policy with Russia in 2011, he said, he was invited to Russia, where he was asked to set up Blackwater PMCs and "hybrid capabilities" in Russia. He allegedly met with the Alpha Special Forces Detachment, whose representatives told him that in 2010 the detachment conducted 300 combat operations. The prince refused to work with Russia, but three years later he saw “little green men” in the Crimea and Donbass, who were not necessarily military men.
According to the Prince, "PMC Wagner" is currently providing a wide range of services, from propaganda, work in social networks and manipulation, to training units of the army, police, border guard battalion and brigade personnel.
The Russians used Wagner PMCs in Syria, quite successfully, in Madagascar, the Central African Republic, today in Mali and Libya, and also in Ukraine.

RT Exclusive: Wagner Group Fights In Donbass
RT’s Murad Gazdiev was granted a rare opportunity to embed with the Wagner Group, a secretive Russian private military company, as it fights in Donbass.
The contractors, who call themselves “The Orchestra of Wagner” or “The Musicians,” conceal their identities.
Wagner fighters fired mortars as Ukraine’s ultra-nationalist Aidar Battalion and the ostensibly elite 10th Mountain Assault Brigade were trying to hold them off.
“Artillery and mortar duels here are deafening and endless,” Gazdiev said while reporting.
Opolchenie sources say that "Wagner's" contribute to the fighting (but, that there is shortage of regular forces men, as peace-time force only is involved, and among those, some, aka '500', walk out of the contracts)-- Resup (talk) 05:22, 28 July 2022 (UTC)
