In the US, they say that
conflict between the head of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin
and the leadership of the Russian Federation further undermines the capabilities of the occupying army at the front.
This opinion was expressed by the special representative of the Center for Global Interaction of the State Department James Rubin, writes "
Voice of America
Analysts note that the conflict is gaining momentum, in particular due to the fact that Russian forces have not achieved their goals in the war against Ukraine.
"What I can say about Mr. Prigogine is that he sometimes tells the truth, sometimes he exaggerates. I think this reflects the difficulties that Russia has faced in achieving its goals. in the afternoon it becomes more and more obvious, and they all criticize each other for not achieving their goal," Rubin said.
Meanwhile, Glen Howard, president of the Jamestown Foundation Center for Military Analysis, is confident that Prigozhin's latest statements may indicate "interesting" internal processes in Russia.
"Prigogine's statements are very interesting. This new report about the capture of a Russian colonel who tried to kill the Wagnerites is interesting. -comedies. It's a bit of theater," Howard said.
The Institute for the Study of War notes that the so-called conflict affects the coordination of the Russian military.
"We see that Ukrainians are capable of making significant gains around Bakhmut on the northern and southern flanks. And this is largely because there is a lack of coordination between Russian troops. "Wagner acted in their own interests, which was to capture the city and prove to Putin that they could, and after that it did not matter to them," said Kateryna Stepanenko, an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War.
The conflict between Prigozhin and the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation
The head of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin has recently increasingly resorted to criticism of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Instead, the head of the Kremlin, Putin, does not react to this.
Earlier, the head of the Russian PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin said 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.
Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered all "volunteer detachments" to sign a contract with the Russian army by July 1. In particular, this also applies to the "Wagnerites".
