Ukrainian military expert: Wagner group is “history”

Ukrainian military expert Serhii Grabskyj has stated that, in his opinion, the Russian mercenary group Wagner no longer poses a threat to Ukraine.

“The fact that some Wagner representatives claim to be forming their own units does not mean we should perceive them as a serious threat,” Grabskyj explained to the Ukrainian radio station Ukrainska Radio, as reported by the Münchner Merkur. He stated that out of around 430,000 Russian troops in Ukraine, only about 600 individuals could be attributed to the Wagner Group. Grabskyj further emphasized that even with the military experience of these 600 individuals, that’s “all they can offer.” He firmly believes that this number is not sufficient to change the balance on the battlefield, making Wagner now “history.”
