France intends to obtain from the European Union the expansion of sanctions against the Russian PMC "Wagner"

France intends to achieve the expansion of sanctions against the Russian PMC "Wagner", in Paris they plan that this proposal will be supported by other EU countries.

The Russian PMC has long stepped on the French's pet peeve, practically surviving France from the former African colonies. Despite all the attempts of Paris to hold its positions on the African continent, the governments of a number of African countries showed the French an open door, preferring to deal with Russia. Naturally, in Paris, the Russian military company, firmly established in Africa, was blamed for everything that happened.



In 2021, the Wagner PMC was blacklisted by the European Union, accused of supporting African governments in the fight against terrorism. In fact, the French were offended that they were expelled from Mali, where there are very large reserves of gold. In addition, the French had to curtail the military operation "Barkhan", which was carried out on the territory of five African countries at once, being in fact a cover for the work of French companies.

Now Paris is insisting on expanding the sanctions against the Wagnerites, demanding that they be included in the new 10th sanctions package being prepared by the European Union on the anniversary of the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the founder of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin continues to troll Western publications. After a message appeared about the end of the recruitment of prisoners into the ranks of PMCs, the American television channel CNN turned to him with a question, what was the reason for this decision. Prigozhin, without hesitation, said that lately a lot of Americans want to join the ranks of Wagner, so there are simply no places left for prisoners.

Since the release of the PMC "Wagner" advertisement (...) we have received more than 10 million applications from US citizens wishing to join the ranks of PMCs to fight against NATO. (...) At the moment, we are considering about a million American citizens for employment. Therefore, we temporarily suspended the recruitment of volunteers from Russian prisons, however, if there is a corresponding request from the US State Department, we will recruit from American
- added the founder of the military company.

        On the contrary, this is advertising to the whole world! Now many countries of the world will invite them as reliable and courageous fighters from the mysterious country of Russia, which is not afraid of ANYONE hi

          I would say differently, now in most cases, to resolve the issue, you will have to say 2 words, WAGNER is with us.

        There is no direct answer here, since they already have francs in the theater to one place. But you need to get to African countries by plane through the airspace of different countries. And everyone remembers how in 13 the plane, even with the current president Morales, was landed in Vienna.

      And the EU will not condemn France for using the "Foreign Legion" in pursuing colonial policy in Africa and Indo-China? recourse

        Yeah. So to inherit in Africa as the French inherited - no Rommel would dream of! The Foreign Legion was not even the first to bend the Africans. Before that, in the 19th century, the French had spagi for the same purpose - North African and West African collaborators under the control of the French officer corps. They colonized Africa for the benefit of the French lily :)))

      The logic of the European Commission obviously points to the inconsistency of the concept of the development of the French model of the post-colonial era on the African continent. feel

      Wagner now has the best advertising in the world in connection with CBO. They wiped the nose of the legion. Now they are being polished, with time and such experience they can become the best PMC, if politics allows.

      What sanctions will France apply to Wagner? Will he stop buying gas, or will SWIFT turn off? Or maybe cancel the chemical reaction of gunpowder with fire?
