Podcast: Defeating the Wagner Group

By Dr. Sean McFate Podcast

In Season 1, Episode 1 of the Guns for Hire podcast, host Alia Brahimi of the Atlantic Council speaks with the author and former mercenary Dr. Sean McFate about his three-pronged strategy for defeating the Wagner Group. They also discuss internal dynamics within the Kremlin-linked private military company, the dangerously outsized influence of its leader in the war in Ukraine, and Sean’s argument that there’s nothing more unconventional today than a conventional war– and that this is borne out by the way that Russia is fighting in Ukraine.
