London : “Threatens global security.” Britain intends to classify “Wagner” as a terrorist organization British Home Secretary Suella Braverman said that the Russian Wagner Group is a violent and destructive terrorist organization, and that it poses a threat to global security, stressing that her country seeks to ban it.  Britain is seeking to ban the Russian Wagner Group as a terrorist organization, according to media reports Tuesday, citing Interior Minister Suella Braverman.  And the Daily Mail newspaper revealed in a report that Britain intends to make the Wagner Group a "prohibited" organization under anti-terrorism laws.  "Wagner is a violent and destructive organization that acts as a military tool for Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, abroad," Braverman said.  She added: “While Putin’s regime decides what to do with the monster it has created, Wagner’s ongoing destabilizing activities continue to serve the Kremlin’s political goals.”  Braverman accused the Wagner Group of involvement in “acts of looting, torture, and barbaric killing,” noting that the organization’s operations in Ukraine, the Middle East, and Africa “pose a threat to global security.”  She stressed: "This is why we ban this terrorist organization and continue to help Ukraine as much as we can in its war against Russia."  The British Anti-Terrorism Act of 2000 gives the Home Secretary the power to ban any organization that she believes is involved in terrorism, and the ban decision makes it a criminal offense for individuals and companies to support the group.  Under the law, a draft resolution banning the Wagner Group is expected to be presented to Parliament on Wednesday.  Last July, Britain announced the imposition of sanctions on 13 individuals and companies for their links to the Russian group in Africa, and accused them of committing crimes there, including murder and torture.  It also imposed sanctions on Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of Wagner, who was killed last month in a plane crash along with several of its key leaders.
