The russian National Guard has absorbed three former Wagner assault detachments

The russian National Guard, Rosgvardia, is incorporating three former Wagner assault detachments, the 15th, 16th and 17th, into its first Volunteer Corps formation. On December 25, 2023, russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law authorizing Rosgvardia to form its own volunteer formations, the UK Defense Intelligence reports.

Rosgvardia will likely deploy its new volunteer detachments to Ukraine and Africa. Rosgvardia is reportedly offering volunteers six-month contracts for service in Ukraine, and nine-month contracts for service in Africa.
