In the clip, a woman can be heard saying, “We are the f**king coolest private army in the world. We are recruiting fighters from all regions of Russia.

Wagner Group was founded by Vladimir Putin’s close ally Yevgeny Prigozhin who recently accused the Russian president of cutting him off completely, saying that he was left alone in making decisions regarding the Ukraine war. Wagner Group suffered heavy losses in Ukraine’s Bakhmut.

“To get me to stop asking for ammunition, all the hotlines to offices, to departments etc have been cut off from me. But the real humdinger is that they’ve also blocked agencies from making decisions [related to Wagner],” Yevgeny Prigozhin had said.
“I’m making a political coming out. Looking at everything around me, I’ve got political ambitions. I decided to run for president in 2024. For President of Ukraine,” he said, adding, “If I win the presidential elections of Ukraine, then everything will be fine, guys, the shells will not be needed.”
