In the UK, belonging to the Wagner PMC will be considered a criminal offense

The UK Home Office has added the private military company Wagner to its list of prohibited terrorist organizations. This was reported on the official portal of the department. The report claims that the corresponding decree was submitted to the British Parliament, after which it was approved and put into effect.

Now, under current British law, belonging to an organization or showing active support will be considered a criminal offense in the UK and will carry, in addition to a fine, a potential prison sentence of up to 14 years.



Earlier, the head of the British Interior Ministry, Suella Braverman, said that due to the fact that the country's parliament considers the activities of the Wagner PMC in Ukraine and African countries to be a “threat to national security.”

Now, even for demonstrating the symbols of the Wagner PMC in the UK, you can receive a fine of up to 5 thousand pounds sterling (about 600 thousand rubles) or go to prison for six months. If assets of such an organization are discovered in the country, they will be subject to confiscation.

Earlier it was reported that the Parliamentary Assembly called on the OSCE member countries to add the Wagner PMC to the list of terrorist organizations, but only Lithuania among the 57 OSCE member countries agreed to take such a step. The document also states that the deployment of units of the Wagner PMC on the territory of Belarus creates a threat to the Baltic countries.

    There are a lot of PMCs in Britain... Probably, if you wanted, you could answer adequately...

      Britain, in general, can be included in its entirety on the list of terrorist organizations! Throughout their history they have been robbers, invaders, fascists!

        In fact, the British were among the first to come up with PMCs.

    It’s time for Russia to consider British citizenship a criminal offense.

    And how does this actually differ from the Russian Federation? After all, according to Russian law, PMCs are prohibited, and membership in them is automatically a crime.

    After the execution of the Russian envoy and other prisoners, the mercenaries do not need to be captured at all, but all efforts should be made to shoot them. They come to the hunt for Russians on safari, you see. Manure everyone!!! am

    I'm so tired of this Russophobia. There are hundreds of PMCs in the world and a huge number of “wild geese” in these PMCs who are engaged in more terrible crimes. And only belonging to Russia is a discriminatory factor...

      All because their PMCs are fighting for the sake of profit, and our PMC behind справедливость. The entire history of their existence shows that justice itself is like a bone in the throat for the Anglo-Saxons.

    Interesting of course.
    In Russia, mercenarism is a crime. As in most surrounding countries.
    Illegal armed groups are also a crime.
    A rebellion, which the Kremlin and AA loudly accused them of. Putin is also a criminal
    There is no PMC Wagner - this is VV Putin.
    PMC Wagner is registered, according to the media, also not in Russia, but somewhere in offshore...
    PMC Wagner, among other things, was noted for the murders of Russian citizens (military personnel, according to media reports, either self-defense or something else, depending on how you look at it)
    Some Duma deputies from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation propose to consider them...outside the law (politely)
    I don’t write about anything else possible under the Criminal Code at all.

    And they promise to consider them criminals not in Russia, but in England....
    Wonderful are the works of justice and legality...

      But at the same time V.V. Putin publicly admitted paying 86 billion rubles to this clearly illegal organization. Logically, the Investigative Committee should initiate a criminal case against citizen V.V. Putin.

    I wonder if this will be considered worse than if your last name is Petrov, Boshirov, or Mishkin? Or on an equal basis? Or is a Wagnerian Petrov of average weight?

    The answer is the same: all PMCs legally registered in the UK are considered territorial organizations, such as ISIS, and their personnel are terrorists.

    I would like to see a list of authorized terrorist organizations whose activities are permitted in the UK and I will be very surprised not to find the abbreviations MI-6, MI-5 and SAS in the list request

    It would not be bad for us to announce a list of civil servants who have citizenship of unfriendly countries, as well as whose relatives live there. Equate them to accomplices of enemies and bring them under the article of treason. Well, first, you can give him a chance to correct himself and renounce involvement in the “golden billion” publicly, with an apology to the country and people, and with a statement of resignation “on his own” from the civil service.

      The presence of citizenship of unfriendly countries and assets there among officials should be considered a crime, as well as whose immediate relatives are wasting their lives there. Otherwise, they are pushing all sorts of TikTokers and slop actors into us, who have left the country as the main enemies of the people. Zen is already infuriating me, almost half of the film is about the moron Milokhin and Panin

    Ok, how many of our people flaunted the stripes of the French Inlegion and other American seals? Maybe it’s time to close up shop too. It should be an honor to belong to our troops and not to the fuse!

    In theory, the response would be to make it a criminal offense to have a British passport in your pocket.
    I have no doubt that China would do so. But Russia...

    Well, as I understand it, it was not the British government that disposed of Prigozhin... Ordinary warriors will not go, there is simply no money, and the top echelons should already understand that the Anglo-Saxons are hooked on mercenarism like two fingers, especially if it goes against their interests. This news confirms 100% only one thing... in the RADA, DUMA, and PARLIAMENT there are usually hundreds of bored idiots who simply devour budget money.
