Breaking: Yevgeny Prigozhin declares war on the Russian Ministry of Defense

Yevgeny Prigozhin

Updated: Wagner mercenaries take over Ministry of Defense Rostov HQ.

Updated: Gun fight between Wagner and Russian military ongoing in Rostov region.

Updated: Comments by Putin’s spokesperson Dimitriy Peskov saying that Putin has said that orders to the National Guard are being approved by Putin. Seems like Putin is siding with the Ministry of Defense.

Updated: Legion “Liberty of Russia” currently fighting on the side of Ukraine has released a statement:

Caesar’s address on the Prigozhin situation. I have the honor! Interesting events are unfolding in the expanses of our homeland and they are very reminiscent of the troubled times of a century ago. The stupid, corrupt and incompetent military-political top of Putin’s Russia turns hundreds of thousands of men into mincemeat. Evgeny Prigozhin, himself a descendant of Putin’s nomenklatura, has decided that it is time for him to play his own game, thanks to his “orchestra” at the ready. We know that he has many supporters among the Russian population and within the security services. We know that Prigozhin has big political ambitions and that he is fed up with greasy generals in offices who can’t really fight. We know that if he launches an armed insurgency, he is very likely to succeed. But we also remember how he and his accomplices cut people’s heads off, killed their own people with a hammer cynically videotaped and mocked the unarmed. We should not ascribe to him a military honor and valor that does not exist. Prigozhin calls for a fight against the renegade generals and for a war to the bitter end. But this war is not in the interests of the peoples of Russia. Prigozhin’s battle with Shoigu, Gerasimov, and their generals is simply a battle for a feeding trough and the opportunity to continue to destroy and plunder the nations. Today’s Russia is a collection of jackals who are tearing each other and the entire country apart. We, the free citizens of Russia, will not leave our people alone with uncertainty and fear. We will put an end to the war and free our homeland from the rotten system, no matter whose system it is: Putin’s or Prizhin’s. Our comrades-in-arms, get ready! Russia will be free!

Updated: Wagner Group demands the Russian National Guard to obey its orders. Coup attempt by Wagner seems to be in full swing.

Updated. General Sergey (Armageddon) Surovikin sends a message to Wagner Group personnel telling them to obey the orders of the Ministry of Defense, halt their columns, and go back to their positions. Other reports confirm there is a Wagner column in Russia heading to Moscow.  Tanks have also been stationed next to the State Duma building (Russia’s parliament).


Updated: Russian TV channels have been hacked and are broadcasting Prigozhin’s statements.

Updated: The FSB has issued an arrest warrant for Prigozhin and has demanded he stop his unlawful activity. He is being charged with organising an armed uprising. Russia’s official military forces are raiding Wagner’s HQ in Saint Petersburg.

Of course, I don’t know if this is a psyop but Prigozhin has been very consistent with his statements. He has just declared war on the Russian Ministry of Defense and is heading to Moscow to arrest them.

Prigozhin is also currently conducting a political campaign in Russia.

Yevgeny Prigozhin

A translation of his statement is posted here.

PMC Wagner Commanders’ Council made a decision: the evil brought by the military leadership of the country must be stopped. They neglect the lives of soldiers. They forgot the word “justice”, and we will bring it back. Those, who destroyed today our guys, who destroyed tens, tens of thousands of lives of Russian soldiers will be punished. I’m asking: no one resist. Everyone who will try to resist, we will consider them a danger and destroy them immediately, including any checkpoints on our way. And any aviation that we see above our heads. I’m asking everyone to remain calm, do not succumb to provocations, and remain in their houses. Ideally, those along our way, do not go outside. After we finished what we started, we will return to the frontline to protect our motherland. Presidential authority, Government, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Rosgvardia, and other departments will continue operating as before. We will deal with those who destroy Russian soldiers. And we will return to the frontline. Justice in the Army will be restored. And after this, justice for the whole of Russia
