Backdrop

  • In February 2023 Yevgeny Prigozhin complained about being banned from recruiting convicts in Russian colonies. One of the reasons is the opposition of the military leadership.
  • Western intelligence continues to estimate Russia's losses in recent months in the battles for the city of Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast, at 20,000-30,000 mercenaries from the Wagner Group; about a third of them may be dead.
