He shared the information the Ukrainian service of the Voice of America.

Budanov neither confirmed nor denied media reports about Ukraine's involvement in the attack and stressed that everyone should find answers on their own.

"A year ago, I personally said frankly that all Russian war criminals who have fought, are fighting or are planning to fight against Ukraine will be punished anywhere in the world. As for the confirmation or denial of the information in CNN's reports, I have no comment, I have nothing to say. Let everyone find the answers themselves," Budanov said.

The head of Ukrainian intelligence has also stressed that Ukraine will fight its enemies "anywhere in the world".

"I think everyone is well aware of the situation in Sudan. In late spring, another rebellion took place there, which was fully supported by the Russian side. The Wagner PMC units were involved in the organisation and in the coup itself. That's all I can tell you. These are our enemies, and we will act anywhere in the world," he explained.

  • On 20 September, it was reported that the Ukrainian special services may have attacked the Sudanese Rapid Reaction Force group, which supports Wagner PMC. The Ukrainian intelligence service stated that it could neither confirm nor deny this information from CNN.
  • President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held an unscheduled meeting with Chairman of the Sovereign Council of the Sudan Abdel Fattah al-Burhan to discuss possible platforms for strengthening cooperation between Ukraine and African countries.
