We Did Not Try To Overthrow Putin & Russian Army- Wagner Group Boss Speaks

Wagner PMC boss Yevgeny Prigozhin released new audio Monday explaining his decision to turn around his march on 🇷🇺 Moscow.

Prigozhin said he wanted to avoid Russian bloodshed and also said the march was a demonstration of protest and not intended to overturn power in the country.

The Russian Defense Ministry had planned for Wagner private military group to "cease to exist" starting on July 1, the group's founder Yevgeny Prigozhin claimed Monday in an audio message.

Prigozhin comments of the attempted rebellion:

As a result of intrigues, ill-conceived decisions, Wagner PMC was supposed to cease to exist on July 1, 2023;

PMC Wagner did not want to sign a contract with MoD, because this would lead to a complete loss of combat capability;

Those fighters who were ready to go to the MoD did so. But it was the minimum amount, estimated at 1-2%;

PMC Wagner wanted to become a part of any other structure in order to be useful to their Motherland, but they were not heard;

Wagner were going to move as a convoy on June 30 to Rostov and publicly hand over the equipment near the SMO HQ.

"We did not show any aggression, we were under a missile attack. 30 Wagner fighters were killed. This was the trigger that we should move forward immediately."

During the entire march, which lasted 24 hours, Wagner covered 780 km, not a single soldier on the ground was killed. "We regret that we were forced to strike at air assets. But these weapons delivered missile strikes,"

During the march, all military facilities that were along the road were blocked and neutralized;

None of the fighters was forced into this campaign, and everyone knew the ultimate goal;

"The goal was to prevent destruction of PMC Wagner and bring to justice people who with their unprofessional actions made a huge number of mistakes during the military defense. This was demanded by the public, all the military personnel who saw us during the march supported us.";

We stopped at the moment when the first assault detachment, which approached 200 kilometers, made reconnaissance of the area and it was obvious that a lot of blood would be shed.

Our decision to turn around were based on two factors: the fact that we did not want to shed Russian blood. The second factor is that we went to demonstrate our protest, and not to overthrow the government in the country.";

At this time, 🇧🇾 Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko extended his hand and offered to find solutions for the further work of Wagner PMC.";

"Our march of justice showed the most serious security problems throughout the country."

"We showed a master class of what February 24, 2022 should have looked like."
