Wagner Mercenaries Train Soldiers in Africa

A clip of Wagner mercenaries training African soldiers to clear rooms, though the exact country is not specified. Note how one man throws his practice grenade and the other rushes through the door right behind it. That is usually an issue that is sorted out in training, or which results in a permanent lesson when encountered in the field. Russia has employed Wagner soldiers as guns for hire, offering muscle and training in exchange for cash, raw materials, mineral rights, and influence. Wagner has operated in Syria, the Sudan, and in sub-Saharan Africa, and has presented a destabilizing influence, countering local and western interests.
