The founder of a private military company did not rule out that he would once again involve militants in the war against Ukraine.
The head of PMC Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, in a comment in his press service, said that after leaving Bakhmut, he will leave most of his private army on Russian territory “to prepare for the next tasks.” Therefore, he did not rule out that he would rejoin the militants in the war against Ukraine.
Prigozhin said he would move the “Wagnerites” to field camps for resupply “and, depending on the situation in Ukraine and the world,” he would decide on the next steps.
According to the head of PMC Wagner, he allegedly has about 15-20 thousand more people who can “go to a few days of battle anywhere in the world and immediately join the battle.”
“If we don’t have to ‘work’ in Ukraine, then in a few months we can liberate some territory equal to about 20% of the territory of the African continent, because less than a thousand people have been made completely that Central Africa is safe in just six months.” Of course, these 15,000-20,000 people are not all our personnel,” he said, adding that “the majority will remain on the territory of Russia to further prepare for future tasks.”
Recall that on May 25, Prigozhin announced the withdrawal of mercenaries from Bakhmut. Until June 1, the bulk of the “Wagnerites” will be transferred to the rear camps, he assured.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirmed that the mercenaries of the Wagner PMC began to leave their positions in the suburbs of Bakhmut.
