Two Russians detained in Poland over recruitment for Wagner Group

Niezalezna(.)pl: A few days ago, it was reported that fliers were distributed on the streets of Krakow and other Polish.

The fliers were intended to "encourage" people to join the mercenary "Wagner Group". They depicted the logo of Yevgeny Prigozhin's private army, the words "We are here. Join us" and a barcode that, if scanned, would take user to a page in Russian.

This morning, on the Twitter profile of the head of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, an entry appeared informing about the arrest of two people - working for the Wagner Group.

"ABW (Agency of Internal Security), in cooperation with the Police, identified and detained two Russians who distributed propaganda materials of the Wagner Group in Krakow and Warsaw" – informed Mariusz Kaminski.

Both heard charges, including charges of espionage, and were arrested.
