Kremlin Accused Of Wasting Paramilitary Group’s Forces To Undercut Prigozhin In Bakhmut
The Kremlin may be purposely expanding a paramilitary group’s forces in Bakhmut, Ukraine, as a tactic to cut down Yevgeny Prigozhin, a prominent Russian businessman and ally of President Vladimir Putin.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, known as “Putin’s chef,” founded Wagner Group, a private military company accused of human rights abuses and war crimes in Ukraine, Syria, and Africa. Wagner Group allegedly operates in Bakhmut, where fighting between Ukrainian government forces and Russian-backed separatists has increased.
According to anonymous sources, the Kremlin may be deliberately wasting Wagner Group’s forces in Bakhmut. This is purportedly to send a message to Prigozhin, who is said to be gaining too much influence and power within Putin’s inner circle. The sources claim that the Kremlin sees Prigozhin as a potential rival to Putin. Therefore, it is using the conflict in Bakhmut as a way to undercut him.
Recent reports suggest a growing rift between Putin and Prigozhin. Allegedly, Prigozhin has been lobbying for more control over the Wagner Group and other private military companies. This has reportedly irked Putin and other members of his inner circle.
The situation in Bakhmut has also raised concerns among Ukrainian officials, who accuse Russia of escalating the conflict in the region. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called for an emergency meeting of the country’s National Security and Defense Council to discuss the situation.
The Kremlin’s actions In Bakhmut suggest they’re willing to sacrifice key allies to maintain their power. Intelligence reports suggest the Kremlin is intentionally depleting the ranks of the Wagner Group, a paramilitary group linked to businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. The Wagner Group has been losing members due to heavy fighting with Ukrainian troops in the town of Bakhmut. Experts believe the Kremlin is deliberately exposing the Wagner Group to high-risk operations to weaken Prigozhin’s influence. Prigozhin has not commented on the situation, but his connections to the Wagner Group may face increased scrutiny. The fate of the Wagner Group in Bakhmut may be an indicator of the Kremlin’s broader strategy in the region. Hence, the situation in Ukraine remains tense.
