The Sahelian nation of Mali has been engaged in a decade-long conflict with an insurgency that has expanded to its neighbors Burkina Faso and Niger.

To aid in the war against jihadists, the junta in charge since 2020 has imported Russians whom it promotes as military instructors.

The military instructors are described by Westerners as mercenaries from the paramilitary Wagner group, which is connected to the Kremlin.
