Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said in a statement on Friday evening that it had “legally and reasonably initiated criminal proceedings” against the leader of the Wagner Group “for organizing an armed uprising.” The defense ministry warned that Ukrainian forces were “using Prigozhin’s provocation” on the front line around Bakhmut. “The FSB will probably issue an arrest warrant for Priozhin, urging his soldiers not to carry out his orders,” General Bieniek said.

As he emphasized, “the dangerous element is that Prigozhin’s troops entered Rostov-on-Don.” – It is a large city, with over one and a half million inhabitants, where the command of the Southern Military District is located, there are also scientific centers and many elements of the defense industry, as well as the airport in Morozovka, from which modern Su-34 fighter-bomber aircraft take off, which support the activities of the Russians in Ukraine Bieniek said.

“Cancer on the body of the Russian Federation”

General Bieniek said that Russian troops could have attacked the Wagner camp in order to “neutralize the most radical elements of the Prigozhin group.” However, he noted that this information is unconfirmed.

– But all this proves that the Russian Federation realized that it had grown a cancer in its body. This is an extremely difficult situation for the Russians. It proves that there is a split in the systems of command and management of the situation in which the Russian Federation finds itself – assessed the TVN24 guest.

He added that “the fact that the internal service units in Moscow are in combat readiness proves that the Russians treat the matter quite seriously.” – This hunt with the witch-hunt will end in removing Prigozhin in one way or another from commanding his formation – said General Bieniek.
