The United States has imposed sanctions against the head of PMC Wagner in Mali

The group is trying to hide the acquisition of military equipment for use in Ukraine, including through Mali and other countries, the US Treasury said.

The US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control has placed Russian Ivan Maslov, head of the Wagner PMC group in Mali, on the sanctions list. This was announced on May 25 by the press service of the department.

According to the Ministry of Finance, Maslov worked closely with government officials in Mali to implement the deployment of the Wagner group to that country. He also provided housing for militants arriving in Mali and organized meetings between PMC leader Yevgeny Prigozhin and representatives of the governments of several African countries.

In addition, Maslov worked to realize PMC Wagner’s interests in the country’s mining sector.

There are indications that the Wagner group is trying to buy military systems from foreign suppliers and route these weapons to Mali as a third party. For example, members of the group are likely to seek through Mali to obtain military equipment such as mines, unmanned aerial vehicles, radar and counter-battery systems for use in Ukraine,” the ministry said.

The sanctions provide for the freezing of all of Maslov’s assets in the United States, as well as the blocking of any organizations directly or indirectly owned by him and other authorized persons.

Remember that PMC Wagner is under sanctions by Australia, Canada, Japan, Great Britain and the European Union.
