Putin: There are no PMCs in Russia – this is a journalistic name


There are no private military companies (PMCs) in Russia – this is a name created by journalists. The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated this at a meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club.

“It was the journalistic name “private military company.” There are no private military companies in Russia, because there is no law on private military companies. In our country, they do not exist and did not exist,” Putin said, noting that the experience of the Wagner PMC was “clumsy” precisely because of the lack of laws.

The Russian president also clarified that the participation of Wagner fighters in the conflict in Ukraine was caused by the situation “on the battlefield.” Putin also noted that now in the Russian Federation there is no consensus on the need for the existence of PMCs.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed strong opposition to the possibility of Ukraine joining NATO, pointing to the serious threat posed by the expansion of the alliance to Russian borders. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
