The global trail of atrocities left behind by the Wagner Group is difficult to comprehend. This illegal Russian state-affiliated military group has carried out acts of terror in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Venezuela, the Central African Republic, Mali, and elsewhere. They are a deadly fighting force that operates to further Russia’s interests around the world, and they are deeply intertwined with the Russian military and intelligence community. Since its inception in 2014, the Wagner Group has fought alongside the Russian Army in Syria, violently secured Russian political and economic interests in Africa and elsewhere, and led a brutal and genocidal campaign of atrocities against Ukrainian civilians spanning from the 2014 invasion of Crimea to the 2022 full-scale invasion.H.R.506/S.416, also known as the HARM Act, would designate the Wagner Group as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, which would give the United States and its partners broader economic tools to stifle the Wagner Group’s operations across the globe.
