War in Ukraine: the boss of the Russian paramilitary group Wagner again complains of a lack of ammunition

“Orders have been given for delivery on February 23. But so far most of the ammunition has not been sent,” he said in a social media post on Sunday evening.

He mentioned two possible reasons for the delay: “Ordinary bureaucracy or betrayal. »

The man was not content to establish an observation, he warned the Russian army: “If Wagner withdraws now from Bakhmout, the whole front will collapse. It will collapse to the borders of Russia, perhaps even further. In general, the situation will not be the most pleasant. »

Wagner’s fighters allied with the Russian army have been seeking to conquer Bakhmout for several months. The forces of Moscow and kyiv suffered heavy losses in this battle.

Last month, Yevgeny Prigojine multiplied the virulent criticism of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of Staff Valery Guerassimov, accusing them of committing “treason” by refusing to provide ammunition to Wagner. A few days later, he announced that ammunition would finally be delivered.

Despite these strong tensions, Russian forces have advanced in recent days around Bakhmout, threatening to encircle this city that the Ukrainians continue to defend fiercely.
