Russia's Africa Corps Is Absorbing the Wagner Group

 The New York Times published on 25 June 2024 an article titled "Year After Failed Mutiny, Russia Tightens Grip on Wagner Units in Africa" by Elian Peltier.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has largely taken control of the Wagner Group's mercenary activities in Africa and placed it under the new Africa Corps.  Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, oversees Africa Corps operations.  Some Wagner Group operatives remain in the Central African Republic and Mali.
