Ukraine’s military has destroyed most of the Wagner mercenaries near Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast, said the spokesperson for the Eastern Military Grouping, Serhiy Cherevatyi, on Ukrainian television on March 10.
Wagner owner Yevgeny Prigozhin continues to quarrel with Russian command and Russia’s Chief of the General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, according to communications intercepted by Ukraine.
"He has a desire to preserve his military and political identity, but he was prevented by the skill of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which almost destroyed Wagner's grouping, and they suffered significant losses," Cherevatyi stated.
“Most of them fell near Bakhmut. Their inglorious history is over in the medium term.”
Earlier, Cherevatyi said that the Russian invasion forces have lost tens of thousands of their soldiers in the battle for Bakhmut.
