The leader of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin complained that his militants were shot by career Russian servicemen during the withdrawal from Bakhmut.
He published the corresponding report on his Telegram.
The incident occurred on May 17 near the villages of Opytne and Ozaryanivka. Russian military personnel mined roads.
"We have identified land mines in the form of a large number of plastids, anti-tank mines and artillery shells installed in a controlled version and brought to the positions of the Ministry of Defense (of the Russian Federation). – Ed.). After a preliminary inspection, the group began demining, but was forced to stop work, because in the area of the village of Semyhirya they opened fire from small arms from the positions of the Ministry of Defense," reads the report, which was published by Prigozhin.
As a result, the truck of the Ural militants was disabled by a direct hit on the engine. The Wagnerians themselves allegedly were not injured.
"[Wagner] groups dismounted, concentrated and took measures to eliminate aggression and detention", – stated in the message.
The report of the Wagnerites says that the commander of the Russian military, who attacked Prigozhin's mercenaries, was drunk.
