Prigogine is interested in the defeat near Bakhmut, – Piontkovsky named the reason
PPK “Wagner” opposed the leadership of the city of Goryachiy Klyuch in the Krasnodar Territory, calling it “Nazis” and “worse than the Armed Forces of Ukraine.” It turns out that the prisoners who are part of Yevgeny Prigozhin's private military company made the most important political science discovery in Russia, defining the Russian authorities as “Nazi”.
Russian opposition politician and publicist Andrei Piontkovsky believes that there is a struggle for power in Russia, Prigozhin claims to take a seat in the Kremlin. About this he is Channel 24 . In his opinion, he dreams of reprisals against generals and politicians.
Huge political counteroffensive opportunities
The oppositionist is sure that Ukraine should welcome this conflict between the generals and the criminal stormtroopers from the Wagner PPK.
In Russia, private military companies are being created not for the war with Ukraine, but for the subsequent war – a mafia war between different clans. Kadyrov has a private army in Ichkeria,” he noted.
According to him, Prigozhin is gaining political weight, and this is well understood in the military-political leadership of Ukraine.
The concept of Bakhmut's defense has recently changed. They prepared the world for the fact that he, having fulfilled his functions of grinding Russian manpower, Ukrainian troops had to withdraw from Bakhmut to other defensive positions. But then a decision was made at the Headquarters of the Commander-in-Chief to continue defending the city,” he recalled.
Piontkovsky suggested that the decision was due to the fact that the military-political leadership of Ukraine realized the huge political opportunities for a counteroffensive in the Bakhmut area.
“Ukrainian troops can throw Prigozhin’s army out of Bakhmut with heavy losses. No wonder he screams about a possible defeat and blames traitors in the army for this. Moreover, he is preparing this situation,” he stressed.

Prigozhin will be supported by military correspondents and propagandists
The publicist suggested that Prigogine is now interested in the defeat in Bakhmut – he can save his life.
For the slogan “Traitors from the General Staff” Prigozhin will be supported by military correspondents, propagandists, and he will become their leader. And Putin will be forced to take advantage of this wave, because for him it will be the only way to explain the defeat, they say, “not the Fuhrer, but the generals are to blame,” the opposition politician noted.
In his opinion, this wave, washing away the General Staff, will not pass by Putin in the public mind.
“Therefore, the scenario of a strike near Bakhmut can initiate destructive political processes in the Russian authorities,” Andrey Piontkovsky is sure.
PPK “Wagner” And its founder Yevgeny Prigozhin: latest news
- The founder of the Wagner PPK Yevgeny Prigozhin, despite the conflict with the Ministry of Defense, decided to send a letter to Sergei Shoigu asking for help. “Putin's Cook” is pretty afraid of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The corresponding letter was published by the press service of Yevgeny Prigozhin. It is interesting that in it the founder of “Wagner” declared alleged control over 70% of the city of Bakhmut.
- Western journalists admitted how many Russian prisoners could have died on the territory of our state in recent months. It is worth noting that they fell, in particular, under Bakhmut, joining the ranks of the Wagner PPK. As the journalists stated, more than 400 prisoners have died since the beginning of March. Judging by the obituaries, most of them were participants in the battles for Bakhmut. In total, the names of 2092 prisoners of Russian colonies who died during the hostilities on the territory of Ukraine have been established.
- Bulgarian journalist Hristo Grozev noted that Prigozhin wants to get real power, at least – the chief of staff. But no one will give him such power. One of the reasons is that the Russian business elite will not allow this. They understand that this is the limit, after which Russia turns into North Korea and their quality of life drops to zero.
