Russian mercenaries are raising hell in Central Africa, and the United States is asking Vladimir Putin men to stop immediately.

In a statement on Wednesday, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield urged Russia to remove its mercenaries in the Central African Republic.

“The UN has provided evidence, including eyewitness accounts, detailing violence and abuses carried out in the Central African Republic by mercenaries working as an arm of Russia’s Ministry of Defense,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “This includes accounts of Russian mercenaries killing civilians, looting the properties of humanitarian organizations, and other horrific acts.”

She added that the presence of Russian mercenaries is “endangering UN peacekeepers and undermining their crucial work” in the country.

“Russia must immediately stop the violence, hold those responsible accountable, and remove mercenaries endangering UN peacekeepers and undermining their crucial work in support of peace and security in the CAR,” she wrote.

U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. met with Putin in Geneva last month to iron out how the world’s top nuclear power can work together and what the United States finds unacceptable.

The discussions centered around Russia’s regular cyberattacks on American companies and government entities.

In Africa, similar cyberattacks are taking place, although a thorough investigation is often not conducted.
