Wagner acts contrary to the Kremlin
To a similar conclusion came at the US Institute of War. According to them, Prigozhin, the founder of PMC Wagner, continues to create disagreements in the Russian government, informing about the construction of fortifications in the north-east of Ukraine.
The report states that Telegram channels associated with Prigozhin and the Wagner PMC said that Russian officials had suspended the expansion of the fortifications, which were supposed to extend all the way to the Belgorod region.
Prigozhin accused the Russian bureaucracy, which he described as "enemy bureaucrats," of being "directly opposed to the interests of the population" when it does not support the construction of the line, according to ISW..
The Institute for the Study of War suggested that Prigozhin could thus be trying to toughen the demands of the Russian imperialists, who have repeatedly accused the Kremlin of failing to protect the border of the Belgorod region.
