Las Tension between the Wagner Group and the Russian government They are still in the clear, while Ukraine takes advantage of these internal tensions on the enemy’s battlefield to regroup for a counter-offensive that allows it to regain control.
The final chapter between the paramilitary organization and the Russian army was led by the head of the group itself, Yevgeny Prigozhin, who directly blamed the Kremlin for the crash, in which four Russian military aircraft crashed in the Bryansk region, near the border with the invading country. vehicles in question were Two aircraft (Su-34 and Sukhoi-35), and two Mi-8 military helicopters,
This was expressed by the leader of the organization through a message broadcast by Telegram. “Four planes, if a circle is drawn at the places of their fall, it turns out that the diameter of this circle is 40 kilometers (25 miles) (and they are all located exactly in a circle). go online now and see what kind of air defense weapons could be in the center of this circle, and then create your own version”, he expressed indignation.
Shortages of ammunition and weapons have plagued both sides in recent weeks. On May 8, Prigozhin offered Reconciliation speech after promise made by Vladimir Putin’s executive To provide all pending military assistance to be dispatched. However, after a few days the situation changed Insult that Wagner’s boss himself said to the Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Vladimir Putin, Shoigu and the rest of the military leadership are lying about the future of the war. Russian regular army escapes from Bakhmut 500 of my men were killed, leaving a 3 square kilometer front open And for us, they say, they threaten to accuse us of treason if we leave Bakhmut”, said the leader of the organization that has supported the work of the Russian military since the beginning of the invasion.
Prigozhin also urged Putin and the Ministry of Defense Stop showing off on Red Square. Regarding their possible return, the leader of the Russian paramilitary group revealed that he had been threatened with treason if his troops eventually left the conflict in Ukraine. Although he has previously attacked senior military officers, this is the first time he has done so directly against Putin.
