Prigozhin again attacked the Russian Ministry of Defense

The head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, voiced accusations against the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation related to the alleged mining of the road used by the mercenaries to leave the town of Bakhmut. He also stated that a Russian lieutenant colonel had been captured.

This became known from the statement of the press service of the Kepka Prigozhin. The Ural car was damaged during the shelling of the "Wagnerians".

Yevgeny Prigozhin, owner of the private military company Wagner, presented a preliminary report stating that Wagner mercenaries near Bakhmut in the Donetsk region had been shelled by Russian Federation military forces.

Prigozhin responded to journalists' inquiry as to whether the road the Wagnerites used to leave Bakhmut was indeed intentionally mined.

"At the moment the investigation is ongoing. Many of the facts are not public. However, I can publish an initial report and video confirmation of what was happening there," he commented.

The photographed report says that in the area of Opytnoye and Ozaryanivka, Russian Defense Ministry troops were seen mining roads in Wagner's rear area. The mercenaries sent deminers there. When they started demining, Russian military positions opened fire on them, according to the report. The Ural vehicle was damaged during the shelling.

Prigozhin's press service added that the lieutenant colonel who had fired at the Wagner vehicle had been taken prisoner, and published a video of him. In the video, the military man says that he is the commander of the 72nd Independent Motorized Rifle Brigade and that he fired at the car "out of personal animosity."


As OBOZREVATEL reported, losses of the Russian army and mercenaries in the battles for Bakhmut are 7.5 times higher than in Ukraine. The occupants are giving the city an extremely hard time, depleting all of their reserves.

Western media, citing intelligence reports, confirm these figures, indicating that the Russian Federation has lost one soldier for every 48 cm of Bakhmut territory. Curiously, the enemy army used the tactic of infantry waves, which rushed into the fortified positions of the AFU, so fought during World War I.
