Strange things are happening in Russia. A group called the Wagner Group is causing problems. The boss of this group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, is now arguing with Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin. Why is this happening and what does it mean for Russia? Let’s find out.

What Started It All

The Wagner Group was part of Russia’s military. Yevgeny Prigozhin, their boss, was close to President Putin.

“The Wagner Group was bold and didn’t care about the rules. They were known for their bad actions in Ukraine,” says an expert.

Then, in June 2023, the Wagner Group attacked a Russian city, Rostov-on-Don.

What is the Wagner Group?

The Wagner Group is a secret team from Russia. They have been working for ten years and are known for causing trouble around the world. They first appeared in 2014 when Russia took over Crimea without permission. Since then, they have been seen in many countries like Syria, Ukraine, Mali, and Mozambique.

The group is known for their soldiers who wear masks and uniforms without any marks.

“They are a group that helps powerful people and gets money and resources in return.”

Who is Yevgeny Prigozhin?

Yevgeny Prigozhin is a rich man from Russia. He is known as “Putin’s Chef” because he owned restaurants where Putin used to eat. From running restaurants to owning a media company, Prigozhin is now a very powerful man.

“Prigozhin sees himself as Putin’s right-hand man.”

In 2022, he said that he started the Wagner Group. He registered the group as a consulting company and opened a big office in St. Petersburg. This was a bold move because such companies are not allowed in Russia.

Why Are They Fighting?

Why would the Wagner Group fight Russia, a country they once served? Prigozhin, their leader, says that Russia’s army attacked and killed his men. Putin says that’s not true.

Prigozhin said in a speech:

“We are 25,000. We want to know why our country is in such a mess.”

Wagner Group: Friend or Foe?

The Wagner Group works in different countries. They help leaders in trouble and ask for resources in return. But they have also been accused of doing bad things, like hurting and killing people. The UN has reported their bad actions many times.

In Ukraine, they have done something new. They have sent many soldiers, most of them being Russian prisoners who were promised freedom. This has started many discussions about what they are really doing.

The Fight: Putin vs Prigozhin

Recently, Prigozhin has started to fight with Russia’s military leaders. He has accused them of not helping his men. This fight has started a power struggle in Russia.

Prigozhin wants to become more powerful, and the actions of the Wagner Group in Ukraine are causing problems for the Russian government. They have always denied knowing the Wagner Group. This fight could change how the world sees Russia.

The Trouble Grows

After Prigozhin spoke out, Russia’s police started a case against him. They say he is starting a war.

According to the police:

“What Prigozhin is doing is like starting a civil war. It’s like a stab in the back of our soldiers.”

Things got worse when Putin left the country. Now, people are asking if Putin is losing control.

What’s Next?

With Putin and Prigozhin fighting, Russia is in big trouble. We don’t know what will happen next, but we’ll keep you updated here on Mandy News.

“In times like these, you need good news sources,” a spokesperson from Mandy News said. “We will keep bringing you the latest news on this issue.”
