Inside Wagner
Added on 2/17/2024
Filmed in four countries, over the course of two years, Inside Wagner sheds light into how and where this shadow organization works and what the future holds for the mercenary group. More than 383,000 Ukrainians have died fighting Wagner and Russia’s regular army since February of 2022. Continued funding for the war in Ukraine hangs on a thread as presidential elections in the United States next year will likely affect the foreign policy approach to this war.
