The head of the Russian PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin said on Wednesday, may 31, that he had asked the prosecutor's office to investigate the "crimes" committed by high-ranking officials of the Russian defense ministry before and during Moscow's military campaign in Ukraine.

Writes about it Reuters.

"Today I sent letters to the Investigative Committee and the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation with a request to conduct an inspection on the fact of committing a crime during the preparation and conduct of the SVO by senior officials of the Ministry of Defense," Prigozhin said.

"These letters will not be published due to the fact that investigative authorities will deal with this," the Ministry of Defense declined to comment.

Prigozhin, the leader of PMC Wagner, has repeatedly accused Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and other senior officials of sabotaging Russia's military action.

Earlier we wrote that the head of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin continues to undermine the regime of Vladimir Putin, criticizing the bureaucratic machine in the Russian Federation.

Prigozhin complained to the journalist that Russian media banned references to PMC Wagner, saying that unnamed Russian bureaucrats would only benefit from such censorship for months before the Russian people began to hate bureaucrats.

He also noticeably shifted the discussion from talking about unnamed Russian officials to speaking directly to one person.
