Revealed the details of the only combat collision PMC "Wagner" and the US Army

Five years later, the first details of the only combat clash between PMC Wagner and the US Army became known.

On February 8, 2018, a large-scale military clash took place in Syria between Wagner PMC units and the US Army. As a result of the attack by American troops, PMC Wagner suffered devastating losses, the consequences of which became known only now, five years later.

According to sources close to the Wagner PMC, on February 8, 2022, units of the Wagner PMC tried to advance towards the Conoco oil field in northern Syria. Nevertheless, the American side carried out a large-scale attack, as a result of which almost the entire Wagner PMC unit was eliminated. According to various sources, as a result of the attack by the US Army, the losses of PMC "Wagner" ranged from 200 to 600 people. At the same time, photographs published from the site of the clash indicate that the unit of Russian mercenaries stationed here was subjected to an extremely fierce attack.

In the photographs presented, you can see the destroyed army trucks, armored vehicles, tanks and the locations of the Wagner PMC units. According to sources, the attack was extremely unexpected and extremely powerful. According to journalists, the reason for the attack on Russian mercenaries was that during an emergency communication session of the American command, the Russian side denied the presence of Russian troops in the area of ​​the oil field, as a result of which the United States launched an attack, assuming that an attack was underway.

“The Americans contacted the command of the Russian forces and received confirmation that the armed forces of the Russian Federation do not take part in the operation. Then the most powerful artillery fire was opened on the attackers, aviation entered the battle. According to unofficial data, several hundred people were injured.”, - the edition reported earlier

It is noted that the column of Wagner PMCs was destroyed on the march and did not even enter the battle, as a result of which the United States did not suffer losses, according to open sources of, the American side has only one wounded.

The founder of Wagner PMC gives slightly different information, noting that Russian mercenaries nevertheless launched an assault and even caused serious damage to the United States.

“As of February 8, I can say one thing that there was not a single Syrian among the units that stormed the Conoco plant. On the side of the enemy were only IG (Islamic State, - a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation - ed.) and the Americans. The result of this battle is that the Wagner Group suffered heavy losses, causing significant damage to the IS units and the Americans and advanced 500 meters deep into enemy territory. At the same time, the American army used all its available means in the Middle East region"- said Prigogine.

It should be noted that this is the first and only known combat clash between Wagner PMCs and the US Army to date.

On ne peut pas tirer d'enseignements de cet engagement déséquilibré où les combattants de Wagner ont affronté sans le vouloir, semble-t-il, et sans couverture aérienne des soldats lourdement équipés et appuyés par leur aviation.

Au Donbass, ils semblent beaucoup plus efficaces...

Where did the American Mozart go? The only "honest" battle of the US aviation against the infantry ... credits.
