The formal inclusion of the Wagner PMC by the US government on its list of transnational criminal organizations took place just a few days after the organization experienced success on the battlefield in Soledar. This is aside from the fact that Washington has been lobbing various accusations at Wagner for several years. RT asked the private military company’s founder Yevgeny Prigozhin what he thinks explains these latest moves from the US. Here is his reply:
Good is always fighting evil in this world. The Wagner PMC is a force. It’s part of Russian power. And this power is always on the side of good.
Of course if we philosophize, then for some the Wagner PMC is good, and for others it’s evil. But it is evil for our enemies. America and Russia are sworn enemies, and this is an established fact, whatever your views.
The Americans want to break Russia up into small pieces, and then take on China and its other rivals, in order to remain the largest and most powerful country on earth. This is all part of the debate over whether we will have a multipolar or a unipolar world. And so far the US has been doing a very good job of that. Take the USSR as an example.
The Wagner PMC has not committed any crimes. Others spend their days trying to pin various crimes on us in different parts of the world. But, unlike America’s paramilitary forces, the Wagner PMC eliminates only enemies of peace and commits no crimes. Of course, if you employ double standards, you can dig up dirt on anyone.
