Monitoring is underway: the White House commented on the situation with Prigozhin

The collective West received an unexpected gift from the provocations of the head of Wagner PMC Yevgeny Prigozhin. Having unleashed an open internal confrontation, he attracted the close attention of the leadership and intelligence of the United States.


According to Bloomberg, in Washington, US President Joe Biden was briefed on the situation with PMCs and Prigozhin, while two top intelligence officials said that “the agency is closely monitoring what appears to be a serious internal conflict between Russian forces."

As you know, a new round of tension broke out on Friday, when Prigozhin published a series of audio messages on his Telegram channel. Also, the head of Wagner attributed to the authorities the desire to destroy this military structure, which allegedly became the reason for the actual open rebellion.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation denied Prigozhin's allegations. The prosecutor's office opened a criminal case against him in accordance with the law, and the Federal Security Service said it was seeking his detention and called on his troops to disobey any "criminal orders."

Russian President Vladimir Putin receives round-the-clock reports from the security forces about their efforts to counter all attempts by Yevgeny Prigozhin to undermine the situation. This was announced by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

The fact that the United States is monitoring the situation in Russia and intends to consult with allies and partners as events develop, Adam Hodge, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, also said. Thus, he confirmed the words of the intelligence representative referred to by Bloomberg.

So far, the West has refrained from making specific conclusions regarding assessments of the situation and its preferences, only closely following the course of a negative internal event that has just begun to develop.

    There is already a video of Prigozhin from Rostov. There are a lot of things from which "hair on end" ...

    For the sake of this, even the old man Bidon was included.

    Is the causal relationship of Prigozhin's appearance in Rostov a coincidence, or an expected reaction?

    Those. Prigozhin went against the military leadership of the country, and so that he would not be destroyed, he introduced his formations into Rostov. In fact, he is hiding behind civilians and by this he has put himself and his organization on a par with terrorists. And this is during the war. Fire.

      We can always shoot. What is it really?? I fully admit the presence of rats, where they should not be, and the emotional (and more) reaction of those affected. So what to do?

      Just shoot, these are not fascists from Azov, should they be sent to Turkey on vacation? We will shoot these, recruit new ones, and, led by a new commander, forward for the Motherland.

    Prigozhin created a business at the expense of the state in agreement with the RF Ministry of Defense, which went for it to solve delicate problems in the Middle East and Africa.
    As a commercial structure, it concludes agreements with other state formations for the protection and fight against terrorists, while supplying at the expense of the RF Ministry of Defense and income under contracts with foreign customers to the owner.
    He put 20 thousand for Bakhmut, in the army, at least, they didn’t praise for such losses, but there was no demand from him, plus advertising in the media for the fights in the Bakhmut meat grinder, and even makes claims. Uncle got pissed off.

    Prigozhin's actions are nothing compared to the "red lines" of Shoigu and Putin.

    I agree that Prigozhin is wrong, but if you look at the situation from the other side, who brought it all to a boiling point, how many times Putin was told that it was necessary to put the legislation with PMCs in order, legitimize and define their tasks and rights, nothing was done , Putin, as usual, began to play his HPP here, like there is a PMC, but it seems not, everything rests on his will. The conflict has been brewing for a long time, even during the storming of Artyomovsk, it was Putin, as the organizer of the PMC, who was supposed to intervene in the conflict and separate the parties in the corners, but again he deliberately did not do this and left everything to chance, that's the result of these games, and so it is in everything, he is the main intriguer in the Kremlin and is to blame for the fact that 25 thousand heroes will be repressed, but as for Prigozhin himself, then you need to involve Shoigu and Gerasimov, these are also not white and fluffy

      Putin does what the AP and his billionaire friends write to him for 20 years, when he himself did not interfere. His friends won't let him do it. Now it is clear why he protected Chubais for 20 years! Chubais did the right thing by running away from Putin at the time, as soon as Putin announced the CBO. Without Chubais, Putin turned out to be nobody. The Putinites Ivanov, Serdyukov, Shoigu are an indicator of their mediocrity in the state, The entire press is under the control of his own friends. And they write verbiage about the "great grand master" of the universe. Essentially copied from the Stalinist press. What is the use of the fact that he has been putting reports on the table for 20 years? All infa instantly appears on the Internet. His speeches for 20 years are all blurry. His last 3 press conferences were practically not watched. Not a single debate on PV in 20 years. For 20 years he has been reading what is written on a piece of paper. It is shown constantly. He is not able to write a single article himself. He is no different from Biden's outside plant. Even Trump, having become president, started a page on the Internet, and answered himself. Putin has not had the Internet for 20 years! On behalf of the GDP, completely different people create his page on the Internet. Such a genius. It seems that for 20 years he doesn’t understand anything in politics! The Minsk Treaty essentially turned out to be a fraud on the part of the Presidential Administration. The Munich speech written for Putin, and so promoted for 15 years, now turned out to be of no use to anyone, just a thought, without any action. Well, about Putin's 20-year GDP at 0%, there are no analogues in the world economy at all

    Nobody canceled the unity of command in our army, so Prigozhin's anarchism will end badly. If you want to help your fighters, join on the legal basis of the Russian constitution and forget about PMCs for a while. the goal of the military company is one and the command of this company is one - then the result will be. Our strength is in unity, it has always been so.

      there is strength in unity, but this is if the rear is reliable and you are not commanded by parquet generals, specialists in retreats, machinations and agreements that the Wagners do not accept!

      Did the unity of command in the army lead to Ivanov, Serdyukov, Shoigu? .To the complete collapse of the army, and into its transformation into full dress. Why pour into a place where there are no victories, and the army has surrounded itself with minefields. Under the leadership of parquet generals? Show at least one combat-ready unit in the RA for 1,5 years of NWO? Where are the victories of these units? Under those who sold out and sabotaged military developments for 8 years, who pushed the LDNR into the power of ukoaina for 8 years !? Under the Yeltsin constitution, written under the United States. How at one moment everyone changed their minds towards the Wagner Cheka, and immediately took the side of the authorities.

    Or maybe look at the situation from a different angle? The 25-strong Wagner group withdrew from their positions and headed south - supposedly to seize the headquarters in Rostov and raise a rebellion. Khokhols rejoice, rubbing their hands. And from Rostov, PMCs can go anywhere - even to Belgorod, even to Kursk, even to Kherson. Now it will be a complete surprise for our opponents. They won't be able to prepare for it. And Wagner knows how to storm enemy positions best of all. Maybe this is a cover for our retaliatory offensive? I would like to believe that this is so.

      it would be nice, but by the cunning of the plan, even the great hacker of our time, you probably outdid it, but if you are right, then I take off my hat

    smart people warned for a long time what all these PMCs, national battalions and other things could lead to ... but Putin, who is being deceived by everyone who wants to, again decided that he is the smartest ... if this continues, then soon other units will begin greetings transmit...

    it's time for Putin to remember that he is the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, to deal with military affairs and settle the problems of PMCs and the Ministry of Defense. until it's not too late.

    So what do we have? PMC Wagner is forgiven, Mr. Prigozhin is amnestied, the criminal case is dismissed. Everything seemed to end peacefully and amicably. But what's in the bottom line? The 25-strong group of elite troops (and even our enemies do not doubt that the Wagnerites are the elite of the Russian troops!) Continues to move, sort of, back towards their summer camps. In any case, Yevgeny Prigogine himself declared so. But will they be there? What if tomorrow they suddenly launch an offensive in the Kharkov direction? Or in the Kherson region? And suddenly Bakhmut again? It doesn’t matter where, but the highly motivated Wagnerites, who won even in a vague uprising on the territory of Russia, not controlled by either the Ministry of Defense, or the government, or the devil, or the devil, Prigozhin’s fighters will be able to break through any defense right now, crush any enemy resistance and go on a real counteroffensive . Where they will be tomorrow - only God and ... Prigogine himself knows!
