    According to its leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Wagner paramilitary force has no intentions to reduce its involvement in African nations following an unsuccessful rebellion against Russia’s military authorities.

    “We are not cutting (staff), and we are prepared to increase our presence.” At the present, all responsibilities are being met and will be met at any costs,” Yevgeny Prigozhin stated in a phone interview with the Cameroonian news site AfriqueMedia, which was published online on Tuesday.

    “Not a single word that I or our company’s representatives said will be violated,” Prigozhin declared.

    Prigozhin had not released any information about the interview on his own or Wagner’s social media profiles. However, he just shared a photo with AfriqueMedia’s director, Justin Tagouh, on social media.

    On June 24, Prigozhin accused the Russian Defence Ministry of targeting the group’s fighters on Ukrainian lines and set off for Moscow with the stated intention of toppling them.

    The Russian Federal Security Service dubbed the group’s actions “an armed rebellion” and initiated a criminal prosecution against Prigozhin, while President Vladimir Putin branded the private military company’s insurrection “treason.”

    Prigozhin later returned “to avoid bloodshed,” and has now allegedly gone to Belarus under an agreement arranged by Belarus’s leader, Alexander Lukashenko.

    The Wagner group had already worked in many African nations, notably the Central African Republic and Mali, before joining Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine.
