For almost a month, the head of a private military company, Yevgeny Prigozhin, did not publish any appeals or speeches. On July 19 , Prigozhin’s speech to several thousand fighters on the territory of Belarus appeared on a telegram channel associated with Wagner . Together with the businessman, PMC commander Dmitry Utkin spoke, after whom the company was named.
The footage shows Yevgeny Prigozhin standing with the flag of a private military company. The entrepreneur said that the PMC fighters who took part in the special military operation accomplished a great feat and did a lot for Russia. According to the entrepreneur, the Wagnerites do not need to take part in the battles, since they need to prepare and avoid shame.
“We will be here in Belarus for some time,” Prigozhin said.
During this time, Yevgeny Prigozhin plans not only to give his fighters time to prepare, but also to make the Belarusian army the second in the world. The businessman noticed that the Belarusians greeted Wagner not only as heroes, but also as brothers. Therefore, PMCs must answer the same brothers.
“They say the local girls are whispering in the stores that the Wagners have arrived.
Евгений Пригожин заявил, что следующим этапом для бойцов станет Африка, однако не исключено, что они вернутся на СВО. Для этого нужно набраться опыта.
Together with Yevgeny Prigozhin, Dmitry Utkin, aka Wagner, also spoke to the fighters. The Wagnerites greeted the commander with applause and cheers.
“I am that same Wagner. Thanks for your work. Thanks to you, the name of PMC “Wagner” thundered all over the world. This is not the end. This is just the beginning of the biggest work that will be carried out very soon. Welcome to hell.”
At the end of the speech, one of the fighters turned to Utkin. The Wagnerian asked the commander if they would continue to fight the nationalists. Utkin, in turn, confirmed that the PMC will continue to “extinguish LGBT people around the world.”
Recall that Yevgeny Prigozhin was supposed to leave for Belarus after the armed rebellion committed by the Wagner PMC on the night of June 23-24, 2023. The corresponding decision was made by Prigozhin together with Alexander Lukashenko. For a long time, the entrepreneur was in Russia, but in recent weeks, eyewitnesses have increasingly noticed columns with the numbers of Belarus, LPR and DPR moving towards the union republic. Earlier, information appeared on the Web that Prigozhin went to Belarus by plane.
