Russian paramilitaries close to kyiv confirm the support of former Wagner mercenaries in their operations

March 21. () –

The Kremlin's dissident paramilitary force, the Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK), said this Thursday that within its ranks former mercenaries from the Wagner Group participated in the operations that have been carried out in recent days on Russian territory bordering Ukraine.

“The former Wagner fighters already participated in our ranks in the areas of Avdivka and Liman – in Ukrainian territory – and, of course, they have also participated in the military operation that we carried out in Russian territory,” confirmed the leader of the Russian Volunteer Corps, Denis Nikitin.

Likewise, he has defended the presence of these former mercenaries under the orders of the Kremlin in the ranks of the forces opposing the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, as part of a kind of reintegration, after having been able to escape “the information vacuum” in which They were in Russia.

“Their eyes are immediately opened to what is happening. They understand where the lie is and where the truth is. These people quickly took our side and until now neither we nor they have regretted it,” he said.

“We are giving these people not only the opportunity to fight in our ranks, (…) but we are giving them the opportunity to start life from the beginning. Of course, we will continue to attract other fighters from the Russian Ministry of Defense to our ranks,” he said, according to the Ukrinform agency.

Last week, a battalion formed by several of these anti-Kremlin forces carried out a new series of raids in the Russian regions of Kursk and Belgorod, bordering Ukraine and a frequent scene of clashes.
