The Future of the Wagner Group in Africa

 Deutsche Welle published on 30 June 2023 an article titled "Wagner Group in Africa: What's Its Future after the Mutiny?" by Philipp Sandner.  

Russia's position on the Wagner Group in Africa is becoming more nuanced.  Now Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is saying that the future of Wagner's contracts in Africa depends on the African nations that have sought their services.  At the same time, this is a lucrative business for Russia that it does not want to lose.  Wagner also operates with many shell companies that it can rebrand or manipulate.
