Ukraine live briefing: Wagner no longer significant in Ukraine, Pentagon says; Kyiv receives cluster munitions



The Pentagon has assessed that Wagner, the Russian mercenary group that conducted a brief but dramatic rebellion against the Kremlin last month, is no longer “participating in any significant capacity in support of combat operations in Ukraine.” That’s according to Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, the Pentagon press secretary.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin told national media that “’Wagner’ does not exist! … There is no such legal entity” and suggested its fighters reassemble under another leader.
