French Foreign Ministry - Moscow: No need to send PMC Wagner to Mali

114

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told Moscow that she did not need to send PMC Wagner to Mali. Such interference in the internal affairs of this African country threatens "serious consequences."


The message was published by the press service of the French Foreign Ministry.

This statement was made by the official representative of Paris at his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. It is likely related to the Reuters allegation that the Mali government allegedly entered into an agreement with the Russian private military company Wagner. As part of the contract, according to the West, PMC fighters will train Malian military personnel and protect senior officials. Citing sources, journalists declare the forthcoming arrival of up to a thousand Wagnerians in this African state.

In response, the head of French diplomacy threatens to withdraw troops from Mali. The French defense department also reacted to the publication. Defense Minister Florence Parley, in an interview with Le Monde newspaper, called the possible appearance of armed Russians in Mali "extremely alarming."

The private military company "Wagner", if we analyze the publications of the foreign press, is literally "omnipresent" - allegedly it operates in Libya, and in Iraq, and in Syria ...

      And what are the French doing there? They have UN accreditation there or an official invitation from Mali ..?

                Not at all. PMC "Wagner" is not registered on the territory of the Russian Federation as a legal entity, in this regard, there is no violation of the current (criminal and civil) legislation of the Russian Federation.

                1. Please contact Hong Kong. The Slavic Corps PMC is registered there. No such Wagner group is registered in the Russian Federation. This is the Hong Kong problem.
                2. Even if there was a certain Wagner LLC registered in the Russian Federation, there would be no mercenary activity anyway. Since in the legislation of the Russian Federation there is a term "employee of a contractor". And the employees of this very mythical PMC fully fall under this definition, therefore they are not mercenaries.

                The Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: A mercenary is a person who acts in order to receive material reward and who is not a citizen of a state participating in an armed conflict or hostilities, who does not reside permanently on its territory, as well as not a person assigned to perform official duties.

                Please note that the employees of the contractor are exactly the persons sent to perform the official duties provided for by the contractual obligations of this company.

                Mercenaries know this from the United States and other backward barbarian countries.
                And when PMCs appear in the Russian Federation, we already have the entire legislative framework. :)

          The situation with Russia's entry into Mali is more and more like a farce of a planetary scale.

          For example, the heads of the French and Russian foreign ministries had a conversation. In Paris, they are shouting that Russia will pay the price if PMC Wagner enters Mali. And what if it is the "Commonwealth of Officers for International Security"? "RSB-group"? PMC Mar? Regular troops?

          Then Russia will not pay?

          It turns out a very funny picture: the EU countries are vying with each other to shake their fists at Russia and shout that the Russian authorities do not dare to enter Mali. Thus, when Russia does introduce instructors / troops / advisers / business coaches, all these statements will lead to an even greater growth in Moscow's popularity, because they decided not to bend there.

          And now the situation, to be honest, is also simple: if in response to the screams in Moscow they give slack, it will be such a powerful slap in the face and reputational losses that even now it is possible to put an end to the entire African campaign.

            Well, put your order in order, what does the RF have to do with it?

            Given that I live in the Russian Federation. For I know the laws. But where are you writing from .... Riddle.
            RF Article 359. Mercenary
            1. The recruitment, training, financing or other material support of a mercenary, as well as its use in armed conflict or military operations -
            is punished by imprisonment for the term from four up to eight years with restriction of freedom for up to two years or without it.
            3. The participation of a mercenary in armed conflict or hostilities -
            shall be punished by imprisonment for a term of three to seven years with restriction of freedom for a term of up to one year, or without it.
            Note. A mercenary is a person who is acting for the purpose of receiving material remuneration and who is not a citizen of a state participating in an armed conflict or military actions, who does not reside permanently on its territory, and who is not a person who is assigned to perform official duties.

            Simply put, after a conversation
            - but don't you want Vassenka to fly to Africa, to fight?
            - oh yes, I want!
            the fighter should receive an average of five years, the functionaries and owners of the Wagner six. But for people in uniform who turn a blind eye to this creativity, there is the second part of the article. It has been shining there for 7 to 15 years. Nothing personal, just the Criminal Code of our country. Before which, in theory, everyone is equal, regardless of the size of the stars on the shoulder straps, and the thickness of the wallet. Yeah.
            Don't like the situation? What's the question? The State Duma, the bill on PMCs, voting, everyone is happy. And at the moment ... From the point of view of the law, there is no Wagner PMC, but there is an organized bandit formation, with a roof made of bureaucrats. yes

      French Foreign Ministry - Moscow: No need to send PMC Wagner to Mali

      This is how the vassals are brought to their senses. I mean the United States and the dung-dumping of France.
      Russia will enter anyway and will be engaged in restoring order in Mali. And the Americans, a little later, will express complete solidarity with their ally France and introduce some kind of sanctions against Russia. And the French will be pleased and not worth a cent, except for electricity and for the salary of Psaki, for those 30-40 seconds that she will say about it at the next briefing. Lafa.
      The French flood around in the stall and await further favors from the owner. And Russia is an enemy enemy, as it was.

      Correctly noticed, Nikolai! The thing is that African countries got rid of colonialism and seemed to have gained independence, BUT, in fact, they remained colonies, only with their national governments, which look into the mouths of their former masters. Mali is a former French colony and as in all such former French colonies, at least French military instructors are present. But all the resources of these countries are mined by French companies.

          There are deposits of Uranium in France, but it is not mined there. It is mined in Niger, neighboring with Mali. In general, the French interest in stability in Mali is completely understandable - military actions always interfere with the economy. In general, after Fukushima, there is now an excess of uranium, which is why France refused to further develop the deposit in the CAR. And there is no such thing as a "French gold mining company" in reality, and this business is not particularly high-turnover.

            Right! There are in central France. But! Firstly, the volumes are not large, and secondly, the concentration is rather low (and it was mined mainly by the mine method). Thirdly: arranging such developments in rather densely populated areas is generally a complete tryndet!

            Not that way! There are uranium deposits in the CAR (this is generally a very common element in nature, although not all deposits are of commercial interest - everything depends on the concentration) it is just that these areas of the CAR are a zone of instability! But in Mali - the main "turmoil" is in the south-west, where the gold-bearing veins!
            And about the "overabundance" of uranium after Fukushima - the question is ambiguous: in the EU - yes, they are trying to move away from nuclear energy. But in the whole world, everything is not so simple: nuclear facilities are being built in Turkey, Iran, nuclear energy is expanding in China and Russia, and in other countries (there are more than 400 nuclear power plants in the world and their number is constantly growing). And what to do with very expensive enrichment facilities?
            Therefore, about the "overabundance" of uranium is a moot point: where is the "overabundance" and where is the deficit ...

              There is not so little uranium in France (the largest deposits in Europe), but they are not mined primarily due to environmental risks and to preserve their reserves.
              As for Mali, you have the wrong information - the south-west of Mali is just the quietest place. https://ecfr.eu/special/sahel_mapping/
              As for the CARs (and other African countries and not only), this is a complex problem. Security and its absence is a risk that can be expressed in money (those production costs), along with a falling market (and it did fall after Fukushima) risks increase, and the expected profitability decreases.
