Rubio, Coons Urge Trump Administration to Broaden Strategy Against Prigozhin, Wagner Group

Jun 17, 2020 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chris Coons (D-DE) members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced a resolution condemning the activities of Russian national Yevgeniy Prigozhin and the Wagner Group, a Russian private military contractor. The resolution calls for President Trump to “work with Congress to develop and execute a strategy drawing on the multiple instruments of United States national power available to the President” to counter these malign activities. 

Although already sanctioned by the United States for meddling in our election process and the illegal annexation of Crimea in Ukraine, Prigozhin, the Wagner Group, and several other entities closely linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian government continue to pose a threat to the national interests and security of the United States.  Their subversive activities continue unabated in multiple countries, including Venezuela, the Central African Republic, Libya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Sudan, and others.
