In our world today, there are currently dozens and dozens of military force companies operating in international conflicts, especially in Africa. They are known as PMCs, private military companies. And no, by private security forces we are not referring to the guards that you find in shopping malls or to the neighbourhood watch service that you have hired. We are talking about real organizations of soldiers with advanced military training and equipment that are hired for money.

And guess what? Russia has become one of the hotspots of this incredible industry, not least because Vladimir Putin's government uses them on a regular basis. In this new video we tell you many details about the international private army industry and also about how Russia and Putin use them to achieve their goals.
