Wagner chief threatens to pull fighters from Bakhmut

THE head of Russian paramilitary group Wagner today said he would pull his fighters from the front line in Ukraine because of ammunition shortages, berating army chiefs in a grisly video.

“On May 10, 2023, we will have to hand over our positions in Bakhmut to units of the defence ministry and withdraw Wagner units to rear camps to lick our wounds,” Yevgeny Prigozhin said in a statement on Telegram.
