Wagner founder Yevgeny Prigozhin denied Bloomberg data on the liquidation of the forces of a private military company in the special operation zone in Ukraine. According to him, PMC fighters will remain in the NVO zone as long as Russia needs them.
“I don’t know what Bloomberg is reporting, but apparently they know better than I do what we’ll do next,” reports the Concord company’s press service.
Wagner’s fighters will stay on Ukrainian territory as long as Russia needs them, Prigozhin concluded. Earlier, Bloomberg claimed that the Russian military command had cut key personnel and ammunition supplies because the PMC would no longer conduct operations in the NVO area.
Meanwhile, analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said Wagner could lose a large chunk of his fighters due to their six-month contracts ending.
