Kremlin gives murderous Wagner group green light to ‘act as necessary’ with ammo

Russia's murderous mercenary Wagner Group has been given the green light to do what it wants just a few days after blaming the Kremlin for failing to win the war in Ukraine.

Last week it was reported that Wagner's boss Evgeny Prigozhin – the former chef of war-mad President Vladimir Putin – had hit out at Russia's leadership over the prolonged invasion.

And in response, they have no been given “as much ammunition and weaponry” as they need, anti-Kremlin Russian news outlet Meduza reports.

A Wagner spokesman claimed that it is being done so that the group can take actions “as necessary to continue combat” – they also confirmed that they have been acting without instructions in Ukraine, making many of the alleged war crimes the group has reportedly committed even more shocking.

They said: “This evening we received the first combat order we’ve gotten this whole time.

“If we remove the secret information, the bottom line is this: they promise to give us as much ammunition and weaponry as we need to continue further actions, they swear that they’ll deliver everything we need on our flank so that the enemy can’t cut us off.

“They say we can act in Bakhmut as we consider necessary, and they’re giving us General Sergey Surovikin as the person who will make all decisions about Wagner combat actions in cooperation with the Defense Ministry.

“He’s the only person of his rank who knows how to fight.

“There’s no more reasonable person with this rank.”

The move could potentially stop the group leaving the destroyed Bakhmut region, which they threatened to do in just two days time on May 10.

The groups new go-between with the Kremlin, General Surovikin, was named as overall commander of Russian forces in Ukraine in October, starting the role in January, 2023.
