The leader of the Russian Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, gave the rashists a rather lengthy interview, which has already been extended into quotes. In particular, he stated that he had lost twenty thousand mercenaries (equally divided between contractors and prisoners).
Putin's bloody chef also acknowledged the failure of the "denationalization" and "demilitarization" of Ukraine, the actual birth of the Ukrainian nation and state, and the power of the Ukrainian army.
At the same time, he publicly called himself Putin's henchman, and traditionally blamed Shoigu and Gerasimov for all his failures. At the same time, as a prominent representative of fascist Russia, he called for the introduction of total martial law in Russia, the closure of the Russian Federation on the principle of the DPRK, and the mobilization of the entire population for war with Ukraine... Although there is a much simpler solution - to get out of all of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, our defenders, who are fighting near Bakhmut and running the telegram channels "Peredovych0k" and "Bakhmut Demon," today indicate that the situation on this section of the front has now leveled off.
This is not surprising: the successful counterattacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Bakhmut in May were carried out by the same group that has been fighting there until now. They simply do not have the strength to launch a large-scale counteroffensive.
