As reported by Censor.NET citing the SBU webpage, an analysis of passport data of over a thousand PMC Wagner operatives testifies that the overwhelming majority of their travel documents were processed by a same Moscow-based unit of the Federal Migration Service, which also issued cover documents for 'Petrov' and 'Boshirov', Russian military intelligence officers who had carried out a chemical attack in British Salisbury.
Series and registration numbers of several hundreds of passports of "Wagner’s men" show the IDs were issued in bulk, one after another.
According to the report, the SBU found out that Russian military intelligence was also sent to citizens from other countries: Belarus, Moldova, and the self-proclaimed republics supported by Russia, as part of the African rotations of the Wagner private security complex.
"In addition, the available information indicates the target recruitment of Ukraine traitors to PMC Wagner Sudanese "business trips" from among the residents of the temporarily occupied Crimea, who received Russian citizenship as a reward for helping the Russian aggressor," added the Security Service.
It is also mentioned that more than 90% of mercenaries deployed in Africa had taken part in Russia's military aggression against Ukraine in 2014-2015, in particular, in the offensive on the Lugansk Airport and the city of Debaltseve.
"Russia keeps lying cynically, trying to justify its crimes committed across the globe. The Kremlin keeps yelling that the armed units of its military intelligence don't protect dictatorial regimes in Sudan, Syria and have not been involved in the murder of journalists who tried to shed light on their clandestine activities," the SBU reported on their website.
The SBU also found out that since the end of 2018, as part of the efforts to create a "military-technical support point for the Russian Navy" in Sudan former Ukrainian Navy officers, who in the Spring of 2014 betrayed Ukraine and sided with the Russian occupants were deployed and were recruited to the Russian navy.
