The head of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhinhas confirmed that the paramilitary company has stopped recruiting new combatants by not fighting anymore in the Ukrainian War.

“At the moment, we don’t have a staff deficit and we do not plan to recruit“, Prigozhin has argued in an audio broadcast by Telegram channels associated with Wagner.

He adds that right now the date of the restart of the recruitment of the group is unknown, which during the fighting in Ukraine supplied itself to a large extent with inmates and ex-convictsof which some 20,000 would have died.

However, he has ensured that “when the Homeland requires it”the Wagnerites, who until recently were the main Russian assault force in Ukraine, will once again create an “additional unit” to defend national interests.

Meanwhile, the group will continue its activities in Africa and Belarusthe country to which Prigozhin moved after the failed armed rebellion against the Kremlin last June.
