Arrival of Russian mercenaries in Mali would be 'unacceptable': French defence minister

French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly granted an interview to FRANCE 24 and RFI in Dakar, Senegal. As France reorganises its military presence in Africa's Sahel region, Parly slammed a "disinformation campaign" aimed at creating "anti-French discourse" in the Sahel. The minister said she did not believe the Wagner group of Russian mercenaries was in the Malian capital Bamako, but admitted "that does not mean that the current Malian authorities are not planning to bring them there." Parly insisted that the arrival of Russian mercenaries in Mali would be "simply unacceptable".
