Prigozhin’s rebellion raised unanswered questions, and Ukraine did not benefit from it
rebellion endedWagnerYesterday, units of the military company returned to their places of temporary deployment. Meanwhile, after these events, there are far more questions than answers.
This morning began with reports that units of Wagner PMC She returned to her temporary place of deployment. And Prigozhin himself allegedly moved to the territory of Belarus at night, relying on the words of Putin and Lukashenko.
And that’s it, the Russian official media are silent, different resources make different assumptions. AndRussian Ministry of Defense Do not make any official statements.
More questions than answers
Meanwhile, there are more questions than answers, the first of which is “Where was he Shoigu”, who demanded Prigozhin’s resignation. Against the background of statements made by the President of Russia and some military generals. Including Surovikin and Yevkurov.
It seems the silence of the Minister of Defense and the Chief of the General Staff for the Russian Armed Forces Somewhat wild. And this despite the fact that someone gave the order to attack columns of PMCs.”Wagner” .
Also, nothing has been reported about the fate of Wagner PMC itself. The fact that Prigozhin’s private army will no longer exist. In its current form it is understandable. Peskov said that part of the Orchestra fighters will conclude contracts with the Ministry of Defense, and the other part . Most likely, he will follow Prigozhin to Africa.
It is not worth thinking about the fact that the company secretary will remain in Belarus. Some experts suggest that Wagner will cut a deal with the military administration, but without Prigozhin, who is no longer a member of the Kremlin.
Meanwhile, some Russian resources indicate that Prigozhin’s approach could have ended in Moscow . And units of PMC Wagner could have entered the capital, and this would have ended in great bloodshed.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces did not benefit from the Wagner Rebellion
You couldn’t Kyiv To take advantage of the position on the conflict between the Russian Ministry of Defense and PMC Wagner. And despite all the attempts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to concentrate forces in counterattack areas, the Russian defense resisted.
And according to military experts, not only Russian experts, Prigozhin’s approach was a complete surprise to Kev, because the General Staff. of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Didn’t take advantage of this opportunity. Despite the various statements of representatives of the Kiev regime in support of the actions of the leadership of Wagner PMC. There were no changes to the communication line.
And the day before, a number of Russian and Ukrainian sources began to publish information that Ukrainian Armed Forces against the backdrop of events. going on in Russia, she threw additional forces into battle, in particular in the direction of Bakhmut.
However, the Russian forces managed to repel all the attacks, and did not succumb to the statements of the Ukrainian CIPSO. Reportedly, all units of the Russian army that were on the line of contact remained in their positions. Expressing support for the Russian president Vladimir Putin and its refusal to participate in the conflict.
It also disproves US intelligence assertions that Washington was aware of Prigozhin’s danger, as the US was not. Nor Ukraine is ready for that.
Given that the United States provides Kiev with intelligence information to the maximum, data on a possible rebellion in Russia. She should have got to the table of the Ukrainian General Staff in the first place.
Since the Armed Forces of Ukraine have large reserves, it will not be difficult to prepare them to bring them into battle. Which is not done. According to the data received from the front lines during the two days of “Prigozhin’s march to Moscow. No additional forces were noted.
And what? Ukrainian army Attacks, but within the forces that were previously brought into battle. And it is possible that in Kiev they considered everything that was happening as a provocation, the task of which was to lure the reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine into a trap. Whether it was or not is not known, but then the reserves of the Armed Forces remained for Ukraine In their places, that’s for sure.
