The infamous Wagner Group has found itself in the crosshairs of not only the Ukrainian army but Russia’s Ministry of Defense after its mercenary chief lost the trust of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, once a top ally of Putin’s, is fighting for the survival of his mercenary forces in eastern Ukraine as the fight for Bakhmut continues to rage following months of intense warfare.
“After the battle for Soledar, Yevgeny Prigozhin lost Putin’s trust,” Wagner expert Oleksander Kovalenko told Fox News Digital. “This is due to the fact that Soledar was captured by Wagner [private military company] PMC at the cost of colossal losses.”
