‘Wagner’ PMC. Contract with the Motherland
Who fights in the secretive Russian private military company?
The Wagner Group is a secretive Russian private military company. The contractors, dubbed ‘Wagners’, ‘musicians’ and ‘bandsmen’, have been fighting in Donbass since 2014. Wagners were also involved in operations in Syria, Africa and Latin America. Contractors conceal their identities and little has been known about the organisation until recently. The documentary provides a rare glimpse into the military company’s work. It takes a look at how its assault, air defence and reconnaissance units work.
Wagner fighters say they work for ‘the good of Russia and the Russian people’. It’s ‘frustrating’ to hear that they are mercenaries and fight only for money, says one of the contractors. While they’re military professionals, who don’t mince words, they also show their ‘human side’, as fighters open up about what it’s like to lose a comrade in battle or why everyone starts to believe in God in the trenches.
