Senior commander in Russian Wagner Group injured in Libya
[Libya Observer] The French newspaper "Le Point" has revealed the injury of a senior commander in the Russian company Wagner, Alexander Kuznetsov while fighting alongside Haftar's militias, south of Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
The newspaper added that Kuznetsov -nicknamed Ratibor- was flown to the military hospital in Russia's St. Petersburg, because of his serious injury.

It confirmed that he was a former prisoner, and was charged with criminal cases, disclosing that he was awarded the Order of Courage by Russian President, Vladimir Putin
...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances...
in 2016.

As many as 300 Russian mercenaries are fighting in Haftar's forces' ranks, according to the newspaper, 35 of them were reportedly killed, mostly from "Wagner", where their bodies had not yet been transferred to Russia, according to the newspaper.
