MERCENARY armies could become a terrifying new military force ready to invade countries and plunder the world's resources.
A Sun Online investigation reveals that private contractors are a fighting force that makes them "one of the biggest security threats of the 21st century”.
The newest high profile player is Kremlin-linked Russian company, the so-called Wagner group, which has reportedly been helping to bolster security for Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.
It was reported there were around 400 contractors in the country helping the socialist government to which Russia has loaned billions of dollars.
Yevgeny Shabayev, leader of a local chapter of a paramilitary group of Cossacks, told Reuters the group flew to the South American country in January.
The company, whose members are mostly ex-service personnel, has fought clandestinely in support of Russian forces in Ukraine and most recently Syria.
