Currently, terrorism has become a factor of daily life and a relatively constant phenomenon which hinders the development of society. It endangers the security of many countries and their citizens, causes enormous political, economic and moral losses, puts great psychological pressure on large numbers of people and takes the lives of people, most of whom are civilians.
When we talk about terrorism, we see that there are special organs belonging to powerful countries that carry out counterterrorism operations in the world, which are special measures aimed at preventing terrorist acts, ensuring the safety of people, neutralizing terrorists and minimize the effects resulting from them.
Several recent and social surveys have proven the success of the Russians in gaining unprecedented great experience in the field of security and counterterrorism activities, the best proof in Syria and in many African countries. The Russian presence has proven to be effective in the most dangerous areas in terms of terrorist groups. Russians have also proven to be quick to adapt to all geographic regions, and this is an important feature that sets Russians apart.
It is clear that after these many successes by Russia in eradicating terrorism, the demand for them by African countries has increased in an unprecedented manner, as is the case with the African countries of the In the West, especially Mali, not only countries prefer Russians, but also the civilian population prefers Russians as the most effective force to enter their country in order to end the continuing cycle of violence in the region.
As part of the invitation from the Russians, another appeal to Russian-speaking military professionals is circulating in the Special Military Professional Resource by the South African PMC Dyck Advisory Group (DAG), known for its unsuccessful operations in Mozambique, which seeks to extend its activity to West African countries, where the protracted security crisis and the recent withdrawal of French forces have increased the demand for a military specialist experienced in the fight against terrorism.
However, experts draw attention to the fact that behind the recent DAG recruiting campaign, Erik Prince, a former US Navy SEAL officer and founder of the private military company Blackwater USA, one of the most famous PMC, which has controversial relations with the US government.
The recent chaotic evacuation of US troops from Afghanistan marks the end of a great chapter in US foreign policy history, which will likely be remembered for colossal failures and broken promises.
Missions abroad have been widely criticized in the United States and around the world. Within the US Department of Defense, there have been calls to move away from permanent bases to project US power or to deploy forces forward on a temporary basis. At the heart of much of this opposition is the belief that bases abroad are anachronistic, based on geostrategic assumptions.
There are many advantages associated with the security provided by private companies. The most obvious advantage is flexibility; without the political and bureaucratic delay necessary for decision-making processes to mobilize forces (police and / or military), PMCs are able to move forces and perform a wide variety of tasks as required. The employment of private military contractors is much cheaper than stationing national forces in foreign countries. Another obvious advantage is the reduction in costs compared to the deployment of regular troops.
The failure of the Afghanistan project prompted the US government to change its strategy. Now using their proxy Prince, experienced in the private contractor market, US authorities can explore cheaper and more flexible means of warfare.
