Z-telegram channels report that the assault detachments of Wagner PMC arrived in the combat zone in the Kherson region. “The new theater of combat operations for Wagner PMC will be in the south. Apparently, issues of a managerial nature have finally managed to agree, and everything returns to the original plan”, writes the channel of PMC supporter Alex Parker Returns. – Yes, Wagner PMC or what it is now, should become the second line of defense on the Kherson front”. Assault squads of the compound are distributed by sectors, writes military correspondent Yuri Kotenok.
The PMC-affiliated Grey Zone channel refutes this information: “If even the redeployment of some personnel in the Kherson direction takes place, these people have nothing to do with the Wagner Group”.
After the death of PMC owner Yevgeny Prigozhin in a plane crash, its operations in Africa and the Middle East will come under the control of the Russian Defense Ministry, Bloomberg reported earlier, citing sources in the military department and in the Kremlin. In particular, according to them, a contractor affiliated with the Defense Ministry will manage projects in the Central African Republic. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yunus-Bek Yevkurov recently traveled to Libya. Sources said that he was in charge of transferring control over Russian operations from PMCs to the ministry. According to Arab Weekly, Yevkurov warned Libyan leaders that the Wagnerites would now report to a new commander.
