Russia's "private military company" Redut is covertly recruiting "volunteers" for combat in Ukraine. The Russian GRU likely oversees this group, which includes former Wagner members, boasting a strength of over 7,000 personnel, as per British intel.
Two Russian GRU agents wanted for poisoning Sergei Skripal are now implicated by Ukraine in a 2015 major munitions depot attack. In 2014, the same men destroyed an ammo dump in the Czech Republic which was to send ammunition to Ukraine.
Before becoming the chief of Russian state media abroad, Vitaly Denisov started his career as a Ukrainian military school graduate and eventually worked his way up in the GRU, an investigative report claims.
