PMC Wagner Seizes Military Building in Rostov: Has Russian Civil War Officially Begun?

Prigozhin

PMC Wagner Group, formed in 2014, has stage a military coup in Russia, starting with the capture of Rostov-on-Don.

Wagner leader and founder Yevgeny Prigozhin has relentlessly complained against Russian military for what he calls incompetence and corruption among the ranks in occupied parts of Ukraine.

Recently, they abandoned their assignment in Ukraine after refusing to sign contracts with the Russian Ministry of Defence, arguing that Russia’s FSB.

In a video posted in Wagner’s telegram today, Prigozhin argued that the Russian armed forces have neglected thousands of their combat-ready men in favour of two individuals: Shoigu and Gerasimov

Sergei Kuzhugetovich Shoigu is the current Minister of Defence while Army General Valery Gerasimov is the current Chief of the General Staff, who is commanding all Russian Military.

Now Prigozhin accuses these two top leaders in Russia for abandoning the citizens of Russia to pursue their own selfish interests.

Particularly, he accuses them for allowing a recent missile attack that killed over 100 Wagner members in Ukraine.

AP Wagner telegram channel wrote, “The trigger of the Civil War was pulled by Pypa [Putin]. Instead of sending one or two degenerates into retirement, he gave the order to neutralize the most combat-ready unit in Russia. The life of one or two traitors was placed above 25,000 heroes. Who is evil in this conflict is already obvious. The victory will be for PMC “Wagner”.

Due to these differences between Wagner leadership and the Russian military, Prigozhin has declared war against Russian leadership, leading to what many people consider as the first full scale Civil War in Russia since the Russian Revolution of 1917.

The Civil War began on June 24, 2023, when over 50,000 Wagner personnel crossed the borders of Ukraine. Their aim is to match to Moscow through Rostov, and kill anyone who gets in their way as they try to liberate Russia from tyranny.

Wagner PMC Telegram channel wrote: “One of the Wagner PMC convoys was attacked in the Voronezh region. The aviation is also working. The civil war has officially begun.”

Wagner group leader spoke comprehensively about the war, saying:

“Regarding the betrayal of the Motherland, the President is deeply mistaken. We’re patriots of our Motherland. We fought and we are fighting, all fighters of PMC Wagner. And no one is going to surrender to the demands of the President, FSB, or anyone else. Because we don’t want the country to live further in corruption lies, and bureaucracy.

When we fought in Africa, we were told that we needed Africa, and then they dumped it, because they stole all the money that was meant to come for help.

When we were told we are fighting with Ukraine, we went and fought. But it turned out that the ammo, weapons, all money put towards this were also being stolen, while officials are sitting and saving them for themselves for an incident that happened today, when someone is going towards Moscow.”

Now they are not saving anything, they are striking us with planes and helicopters at the columns with civilians. And they hit civilians because they’re missing. And they hit anywhere they can. Thus, we are the patriots, but those resisting us today are those who gathered around scumbags.”

As we write this article, Wagner group has taken Rostov and matched forward to Voronezh, bypassing military barricades on their way to Moscow. They have faced attacks from Russian military, but they are so far successful in repelling those attacks.

“On the Moscow highway, one of the assault units got under fire of helicopters. In the units of PMC Wagner, everybody is intact. The helicopter was destroyed, it’s burning in a tree line,” Prigozhin said in an audio message this morning.

Putin has responded to this threat, saying that his security is alert and considers the current situation as mutiny and treason, which must be punished. He called for the arrest of Prigozhin, who is currently leading his group to Moscow and taking out any threat along the way.
