The Pentagon has assessed that Wagner, the Russian mercenary group that conducted a brief but dramatic mutiny against the Kremlin last month, is not “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.
U.S.-supplied cluster munitions are now in Ukraine, U.S. Lt. General Douglas A. Sims II, the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s director of operations, told reporters. They have not yet been used, Ukrainian Brig. Gen. Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, told CNN.
