Evgeny Prigozhin commented on the information about the crash in the Bryansk region of two Mi-8 helicopters and Su-34 and Su-35 fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces. This was reported on May 14 by the press service of the founder of PMC Wagner.
“… regarding the crash of four aircraft, as the media write, near Bryansk. In order to determine how the Ukrainians could reach out from their territory and hit our planes, it is always necessary: first, take the performance characteristics of various weapons, in particular air defense systems. And the second is to figure out what are the features in this situation. Since this is a collective goal, roughly speaking. Four planes, if you draw a circle in the places of their fall, it turns out that this circle has a diameter (and all of them lie exactly in a circle) of 40 kilometers. That is, the radius of the circle is 20 kilometers. Now go online and see what kind of air defense weapon could be in the center of this circle, and then build your own versions. I don’t know, I’m doing Bakhmut, ” — said Prigogine.
He also spoke about the situation in Artemovsk (Bakhmut).
“Tonight, the enemy did not take any action to advance further. On the Berkhovsky reservoir, we were forced, as I have already said, to place part of our units in order to hold back the further advance of the enemy. Those fighters (Russian Defense Ministry) who did not run away from the lost positions joined us. Some of them quite successfully occupy their positions and, built into the overall system, reflect the enemy’s offensive.
As for the constant information that the Airborne Forces are helping us, I don’t know, I haven’t seen them. The Airborne Forces, in theory, were supposed to recapture those positions that were lost by other units. But, as far as I know, these positions are still under the enemy. Therefore, I do not know where the Airborne Forces are and who they help. PMC “Wagner” continues to move inside Bakhmut. As soon as we slam Bakhmut, then the task of the Airborne Forces or other units is to keep him, ” – stressed the founder of PMC “Wagner”.
As reported EADailythe founder on the eve of Yevgeny Prigozhin commented on the statement of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny that the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Federation Valery Gerasimov “strong, cunning and unpredictable.” The audio recording of the comment is posted on the Prigozhin’s Cap telegram channel.
