The Wagner Group, Putin's Indictment, and the Current State of Play in Ukraine

Episode 272

The Wagner Group, a private military contractor with close ties to Russia, has been linked to countless human rights abuses and destabilizing efforts across the globe. The group is now raising speculation in Sudan as they acquire resources to aid Russia's efforts in the war in Ukraine. This week, friend-of-the-cast Adam Pearlman steps in to host John Dermody and Arthur Traldi in discussing how the Wagner Group is classified, whether it should be designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, as well as how the recent ICC charges against Putin are unfolding.
