"Russian mercenaries near Sudan accused of killing hundreds" in order to seize gold

Middle East Eye:

Thousands have fled the area for Sudan, with small-scale gold miners losing millions of US dollars worth of gold and property in total. 


With the current war in Ukraine creating an acute need in Moscow for money and gold reserves, monitors believe Russian forces are aiming to expel miners from the region in order to then smuggle gold and diamonds back to Russia.
