The Kremlin said that the information about illegal actions of the detainees in Belarus, “employees” PMC “Wagner” no

The Kremlin is waiting for “complete information” from Minsk about the detention in Minsk 33 “employees” of the Russian private military company “Wagner”. About it today journalists were reported by the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, writes RBC.

At the request of journalists to comment on the fact that among the detainees there are citizens of Ukraine, Peskov said: “We do not recognize their Ukrainian citizenship. They are citizens of Russia… We must first understand the charges against them”.

Answering the question why Russia does not pursue PMC “Wagner” for participation in combat actions in Donbass, speaker of the Kremlin said, “what is PMC “Wagner”? In Russia, de jure such thing as a PMC, no. There is a private security company, there are firms, and such thing as a PMC, no.”

He added that the Kremlin will take into account the statement of the writer Zakhar Prilepin about the fact that among the detainees there are a few people who served with him in the Donbass.

About the detention of 33 Russians who are in the PMCs “Wagner”, the Belarusian authorities announced on July 29. More than 10 of them are included in the list of the Ukrainian site “Peacemaker” as participants in the armed conflict in the Donbass on the side of Pro-Russian militants.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko during urgent meetings with members of the security Council stated that it was necessary to apply to the relevant structures of the Russian Federation to explain the situation with the Russian fighters PMC “Wagner” in Belarus.

Russian military journalist Semyon Pegov said that the company “Wagner” intended to transfer a group of his fighters via Belarus to Africa and the Belarusian authorities knew about it. “Radio Svoboda” believes that the destination was Sudan.
