Announcement of Wagner Chief’s Candidacy for Ukrainian Presidency
Prigozhin embraced his political career by stating, “I am making a political coming out,” and gun fires were heard in the background. I have political intentions based on everything I see around me. I chose to run for the executive in 2024. for the Ukrainian President.”
He added, “everything will be fine” if he defeats Volodymyr Zelensky and Petro Poroshenko, his predecessor. Still, “If I win the presidential elections in Ukraine,” everything will be fine.
This could be a dig at Moscow for not providing the avaricious group with security, according to reports. The Wagner chief has frequently brought up the security issue.
The Head of Wagner has been at odds with Russian military leaders, including Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu and General Staff Chief Valery Gerasimov, for some time.
He has raised his concerns regarding the ministry’s “covetousness” for the success of his greedy colors and has questioned their capability. Recently, Prigozhin claimed that he was unfit to communicate with anyone at the Kremlin and that Russian President Vladimir Putin had cut him off.
On his Telegram channel, Prigozhin stated, “All the hotlines to services, departments. have been cut off from me to get me to stop asking for security.” The real bummer, however, is that they have also prevented agencies from expressing their opinions.
Simply last week, he’d exhorted that except if his tones are braced with security, Moscow’s situation in the eastern Ukrainian megacity of Bakhmut is in a trap.
According to reports, Moscow failed to keep its promise to provide Wagner security. According to Reuters, Prigozhin did indeed call the withholding of ammunition inventories “disloyalty” in February.
Wagner, the head of the Russian mercenary group, has advised that Moscow’s position in the megacity of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine is in danger unless his banner is protected.
According to Reuters, the current scenario is to be considered the last indication of tensions between the private host chief and the Kremlin. Russian 155th squad leaders’ disinterest has also been reported by Ukrainian military officers and judges.
Apparently, in the wake of supporting serious misfortunes in battling close to the city of Vuhledar, south of Bakhmut, they’re challenging requests to assault.
The Wagner commander, Yevgeny Prigozhin, stated that if his forces refused to accept the security that Moscow had promised in February, Russia’s frontal lines could collapse. In a costly downtime descent, a Russian palm in Bakhmut could provide Moscow with its first major prize.
Russia has acknowledged the significance of the megacity and referred to it as a stepping stone toward the completion of the Donbas artificial region, one of Moscow’s most important projects.
The relationship between the Wagner group and the Russian government underwent a significant transformation during the Russia-Ukraine war. The Wagner leader is complaining about the Russian bloc’s lack of support while the Kremlin distances itself from the coalition.
According to Volodymyr Nazarenko, a commander in Bakhmut wearing Ukrainian uniforms, “the fighting in the megacity and around is veritably hell-like, as it is on the entire eastern front.”
