Large elements of the Wagner Group of mercenaries have likely been assimilated into the command structure of Russia's National Guard (Rosgvardiya) and resumed active recruitment, the U.K.'s Ministry of Defence said in an intelligence update Sunday. The Wagner Group has been in a state of flux since the death of its leader Yevgeny Prigozhin in a plane crash in August. The incident is under investigation.
