UK declares Russia’s Wagner Group as a Terrorist Organization

The United Kingdom has officially labeled Russian mercenary group Wagner as a terrorist organization

In a significant development, the United Kingdom has officially designated Russian mercenary group Wagner as a terrorist organization. The announcement comes in the wake of Wagner Group’s bold move earlier this year when they held a rally near Moscow before suddenly retreating. The UK’s decision to ban the Wagner Group as a terrorist entity makes it illegal to be associated with or provide support to the group.

The UK Home Office revealed that a draft order has been submitted to Parliament, paving the way for Wagner Group assets to be classified as terrorist assets, subject to confiscation. Interior Minister Suella Braverman minced no words, describing the Wagner group as “violent and destructive” and branding them “terrorists, plain and simple.” This declaration firmly establishes their position under UK law.

The official statement also highlights the Wagner Group’s notorious reputation for plundering and carrying out “barbaric killings” in regions such as Ukraine, the Middle East and Africa.

Wagner Group’s Audacious Revolt: A Short-Lived Challenge to Russia’s Status Quo

The Wagner Group drew worldwide notice in June when they launched a revolt and, on their way to Moscow, attacked the army headquarters in Rostov-on-Don to destabilize the army and destroy the Russian government. Their actions received a mixed reaction from the public, with some viewing their leader Yevgeny Prigozhin‘s “Justice March” as a challenge to the perceived “corrupt” administration. Their uprising, however, was short-lived, and they fled to avoid bloodshed. Months later, claims surfaced that Prigozhin was onboard a jet that crashed north of Moscow, adding to the mystery surrounding the controversial character.
