Wagner Group, Yevgeniy Prigozhin, and Russia’s Disinformation in Africa and the Ukraine.

The Kremlin-backed Wagner Group is a NeoNazi group of mercenaries that exploit insecurity to expand its presence in Africa, and the Ukraine threatening stability, good governance, and respect for human rights. Yevgeniy Prigozhin, known as “Putin’s chef” due to his catering contracts with the Kremlin, is a Russian oligarch and Wagner’s manager and financier. Although Russian officials refuse to accept links to the Wagner Group, ( Because where ever the Wagner Group goes they are known to have committed atrocities ) however, the Russian government is at least aware of or has used the Wagner Group and other Prigozhin-owned entities as proxies to disperse disinformation and carry out covert, armed operations abroad, including in Mali, the Central African Republic, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine.

Russia’s intensified application of disinformation and the use of the Wagner Group across Africa has spread a trail of lies and human rights abuses. Despite U.S., EU, and UK sanctions and exposure of Prigozhin-linked entities that spread disinformation, these actors continue operating in Africa and currently in the Ukraine exploiting turbulent situations through disinformation to sway public support for the Russian government to expand its influence, along with committing atrocities where ever they are sent.
