More than 1,200 Russian soldiers carry out combat missions in Mali

Emmanuel Macron, who leads the military operation as commander-in-chief, said that the French armed forces will not only be withdrawn from the Sahel region (only the most essential personnel will be left to provide logistics for, as it was emphasized, humanitarian operations), France also intends to close army bases.

It is worth noting here that even after Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Senegal became independent, Paris considered West Africa as a sphere of its vital interests and, for obvious reasons, the main of which is the natural resources by which these states possessed.

According to information from sources that are currently being discussed in France, more than 1,200 soldiers of the Russian PMC Wagner have already begun to carry out combat missions in Mali. They flew there in transit through Libya and the CAR.

For a long time, the soldiers were at military bases, where they underwent familiarization and acclimatization. At the moment, they have already been deployed and are performing tasks on the border of Burkina Faso.

Now there is a high threat of jihadist activity, but France, within the framework of Operation Barkhan, does not work in this region, which allowed PMC Wagner to take on this task.

They strive to show their high efficiency and prove their benefit to the Government of Mali, which agreed to this operation.

The information is confirmed by many sources and it is even known about the first losses that Wagner suffered during the operation. In particular, 2 young people, about whom the media wrote last week.

This information is also confirmed by French sources. These deaths prove the seriousness of the PMC’s attitude and also indicate that this mission will not be easy for them.
