Investigators called the “fruit of the mystification of” the data on PMCs “Turan”
Private military company “Turan” does not really exist, the author of “the hoax” is the correspondent of ANNA News and the “Russian spring” Oleg Blokhin.
To such conclusion in its investigation Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT).
We collected enough information to say with certainty that the so-called “PMC Turan” – not a real armed formation, and the fruit of a vast hoax, created mainly by one person – the correspondent of ANNA News and the “Russian spring” Oleg Blokhin.Conflict Intelligence Team
According to CIT, the prototype of “Turan” became Soviet “Muslim battalions” during the war in Afghanistan, and for photos of the alleged fighters PMCs posed himself Blokhin and his friend, cameraman REN TV Alexander Rychkov.
CIT indicates the absence of information about the command “Turan”, the place of preparation, the dead soldiers or their relatives, i.e. all data in a large number of features against the real “PMCs Wagner.”
For the first time about the “Turan” was publicly declared in April 2017 on the site “Russian spring”. The publication, associated with the separatists of Donbass, reported that the division of PMCs composed of 800-1200 people heading in the Syrian province of Hama to combat the militants. It was noted that PMCs are natives of the North Caucasus and Transcaucasia. In October a member of an unnamed PMC also told the “Moskovsky Komsomolets” about the existence of “Turan”.
