Russian propagandists are trying to outdo themselves by inventing increasingly ridiculous scenarios to shift the blame from Kremlin for the appearance of PMC Wagner members in Belarus.
They claim to have found a “Ukrainian trace” in the situation where operatives from Russian private military company, created by “Putin’s chef” Yevgeniy Prigozhyn, were found and detained on Belarusian territory. The reporters proceed to a bizarre account of this “covert operation by Ukrainian secret service” allegedly aimed to sour relations between Belarus and Russia.
Previously, Western countries have been accused of having the same desire. It is worthwhile to remember that Wagner is arguably the most notorious Russian PMC, having worked in Ukraine and Syria along with CAR, Venezuela, Sudan and Libya.
