- Thank you to everybody who donated to 3CR during Radiothon. With your help YNP! managed to raise just over $7,000 for the station in order to stay radical and continue to ‘provide a vital platform for the issues that get left behind, and the voices that get silenced’. You rock!
This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Isabella Currie [Twitter] about The Wagner Group. Isabella is a PhD student @ La Trobe and her research revolves around the Wagner Group’s role in international relations. We spoke to her about the Group, its operations in Africa and Ukraine, its role in Russian politics, and about its founder, Yevgeny Prigozhin, and his relationship to Putin and his regime.
