Sky News obtained exclusive interviews with Russian private military contractor mercenaries who secretly carried out direct action offensive combat operations in Syria. In much the same way Putin wages proxy war in Ukraine, these men were recruited, trained, and then paid to fight. If they died, any knowledge of their existence wass denied or falsely misattributed to another cause of death.
The fighter interviewed claimed that his private military group was responsible for retaking the city of Palmyra from ISIS, and then Assad’s troops, who he described as useless, would come in and take the credit. I believe him.
