Gulag.net, a Russian anti-establishment website, posted a video "Прикрывайте!Прикрывайте!" Среди нападавших на Израиль были русскоговорящие инструкторы. ЧВК Вагнер?, which translates to '"Cover! Cover!" Among the attackers on Israel were Russian-speaking instructors. PMC Wagner?'

Former Ukrainian president Poroshenko has made a similar claim, in broad terms:
The former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko told Euractiv he was “absolutely sure” that instructors from the Russian mercenary group Wagner were transferred from Syria to Gaza to help prepare the terrorist attacks on Israel on 7 October. [...]
“I’m absolutely sure that the Russian Wagner instructors in Syria were transferred to Hamas in Gaza and participated in the training of terrorists to prepare the absolutely barbaric attack on Israel from the Gaza strip.”
Did Russians instructors help Hamas in the latest invasion?
