On September 29, 2023, russian authorities published footage of President Putin meeting former Wagner Group Chief of Staff Andrei Troshev, tasking him with overseeing and establishing new volunteer fighting units, the UK Defense Intelligence reports. Deputy defense minister Yunus-Bek Yevkurov was also at the meeting.
