Wagner CEO Defiant in Face of President Putin’s Accusations of ‘Treason’ Following Russia Coup

Wagner Chief Firmly Rejects President Putin’s Allegations of Betrayal Amidst Russian Coup

Wagner CEO Denies Putin’s Betrayal Allegations, Asserts Loyalty to Russia
Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the Wagner paramilitary group, has vehemently refuted accusations made by Russian President Vladimir Putin, asserting his loyalty to the country and labeling his fighters as patriots. In an audio message shared on his Telegram channel, Prigozhin dismissed the notion of betraying the motherland, stating that the president was mistaken in his claims. He emphasized that the Wagner group consisted of individuals who were devoted to their homeland.
Furthermore, Prigozhin expressed his firm stance against surrendering to President Putin’s demands or those of the security services. He expressed his dissatisfaction with the prevailing corruption, deceit, and bureaucracy in the country, stating that such conditions were not conducive to the well-being of the nation.
President Putin, in a televised address on Saturday, referred to the actions of the Wagner fighters as treachery, attributing it to excessive ambitions and personal interests. He asserted that those responsible for organizing and participating in the military mutiny, turning their weapons against their comrades, would face consequences for betraying Russia and its people.
Prigozhin took to social media to share a video allegedly depicting military offices in Rostov-on-Don, which he claimed were under his control, along with the local airfield. However, independent verification of these claims is currently unavailable.
The Wagner CEO also accused defense chiefs of concealing significant casualties in the Ukrainian conflict, stating that the number of Russian casualties was far higher than officially reported. He alleged that the actual figure was three to four times greater than what authorities acknowledged.
In a separate audio message on Telegram, Prigozhin declared that Wagner had 25,000 troops actively engaged, with an additional 25,000 prepared to join. He emphasized their willingness to sacrifice their lives for the liberation of the Russian people and the defense of the Motherland.
This intensifying confrontation between Yevgeny Prigozhin and Russia’s defense establishment represents a significant escalation in their long-standing feud. The situation poses a considerable challenge to President Putin’s authority, comparable in magnitude to the deployment of troops to Ukraine 16 months ago.
