Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin has accused Russian “decision makers” of treason and called them “thugs” for not providing his forces with ammunition.

Prigozhin fighters who he claims have now taken 80% of Bakhmut need ammunition and his forces are doing what they can with the “minimal quantity of ammunition.”

Prigozhin said on Telegram, “A criminal group did not give us ammunition” and claimed there are stockpiles of supplies.

He added, “I think what is happening today is a crime against Russia and Russian people. The criminals must be held accountable.”

Prigozhin also said his group “will advance at any cost, just to grind down the Ukrainian army and disrupt their offensive.”

A UK defence official said that fighting in Bakhmut is an “appalling slur on the continent” when he was asked what the UK are doing to help Ukrainian forces.

Dr Andrew Murrison, parliamentary under secretary of state at the defence ministry, said that he is “appalled” by the war of attrition in Bakhmut.

He added, “It is a most appalling slur on the continent that we call home and will be an enduring slur on Putin’s Russia.”

Dr Murrison said that the International Atomic Energy Agency are “monitoring the situation” around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power and the UK are “ready.”

He added, “There is no excuse for nuclear blackmail, be it in Zaporizhzhia or anywhere else.”

Dr Murrison was asked in the House of Commons if he believes there could be an escalation in the war between Russia and Ukraine, he told MPs that he “hopes not.”

He added, “It is not just about munitions and armour. It is also about training and I have seen for myself our training effort.

“We will have trained 20,000 Ukrainians by the end of this year.”
