Russia deliberately launches “Wagnerites” on the demarcation lines, neglecting significant losses. This irritates Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner PPK, very much.
This Channel 24 was told by a military expert, head of the Ukrainian Security Center Serhiy Kuzan. According to him, conflicts arise among the Russian leadership.
Conflicts in the Russian army
Sergei Kuzan said that the Chief of the General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, was simply cleaning up the “Wagnerites”.
“He wants to have security forces under his control,” he explained.
In his opinion, a black cat ran between Yevgeny Prigozhin and Valery Gerasimov.
There is an attempt by Gerasimov to completely wipe out Prigozhin's private army. All this is done in order to reduce the political influence of Yevgeny Prigozhin, who is close to Putin, he stressed.
The military expert stressed that the head of the Wagner PIK, of course, does not like this position. he stressed.
Gerasimov is simply trying to use the “Wagnerites”.
And it is not rare that paratroopers stood by and watched as our Defense Forces destroyed the Wagnerians,” Kuzan explained.
This provokes a certain discontent in order to “extinguish” it and personnel rotations take place.

“For us, the enemy remains the same, but still we must not forget that in Russia itself there is a very tough internal struggle between different power groups,” he said.
