“The Wagner Group. Putin's Mercenaries" sheds light on the activities of the Wagner Group, a private mercenary army created by Yevgeny Prigozhin, nicknamed "Putin's cook". Initially, the group guarded the interests of the Kremlin wherever Russia could not send a regular army. It operated in Africa and the Middle East, where it was famous for its brutality and ruthlessness. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the first defeats of Putin's army, they were engaged in operations at the front.
