Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin and his mercenaries have been hung out to dry as Vladimir Putin’s Defence Minister is not providing them with ammunition.
Prigozhin once seen as Putin’s closest ally launched a furious tirade at the Russian top brass and surrounded by dead bodies he demanded “where is the f****** ammon?” and said that their “organs [are] f****** eaten.”
Prigozhin targeted Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and General Valery Gerasimov and told the cameraman to video the dead bodies and shouted, “We have a 70% ammo shortage! Shoigu! Gerasimov! Where the f*** is the ammo?”

Speaking of his troops who were killed in action he blasted, “F***! They are somebody’s f****** fathers, and somebody’s sons!
“And those scum who are not giving us munitions! B***! Will be in hell!
“Their organs f****** eaten! We are short on munitions! 70%! Shoigu! Gerasimov! Where are the f****** munitions!”
As a result of the ammunition deficit Prigozhin said that his mercenaries who are fighting in Bakhmut will have to either “withdraw or die.”
He then said that “Russia is on the brink of catastrophe” in an interview with a milblogger saying that Moscow must “stop deceiving” their citizens.
Warning: graphic video. This is Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of Wagner PMC, a Russian mercenary group operating in Ukraine. He is complaining of not having enough ammunition. The prevailing theory is that Moscow is denying Prigozhin ammo so he can't stage a coup against Putin. pic.twitter.com/qUlbGSju1Q

Prigozhin added, “We need to stop deceiving the population and telling them that everything is fine.”
He then accused Russia’s top military brass of deluding themselves about the so called “special military operation” or “not giving a damn” about their forces.
Abbas Gallyamov, a former speechwriter for Putin told CNN, “There are more and more dead bodies returning to Russia, so Russians will be coming across more difficulties and they’ll be trying to find explanation why this is happening, looking around to the political process and they’ll be answering themselves, ‘Well, this is because our country is governed by an old tyrant, an old dictator.’”
