Summary:

  • The United States said on Thursday that North Korea recently sent new weapons to Wagner.

  • According to National Security Council spokeswoman John Kirby, Wagner paid for the weaponry.

  • Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a Russian oligarch, owns Wagner, which has paramilitary operations worldwide, particularly in the Middle East and Africa.

  • Kirby says that Vladimir Putin of Russia is “turning to Wagner for military help” more and more.

  • According to Kirby, Wagner spends more than $100 million per month to finance the activities of his organization in Ukraine.

Oleksandr Danylyuk, who used to be Ukraine’s national security advisor and now gives advice on military planning, said that Kyiv is aware of Bakhmut’s growing power.

They recently employed many inmates. “On the front lines [in Bakhmut], they are being pushed,” Danylyuk stated. “They are—I won’t say fearless—but they essentially have nothing to lose.” They therefore continually attack, resulting in numerous deaths.

The United States said on Thursday that North Korea recently sent new weapons to Wagner. These weapons include rockets and missiles. According to National Security Council spokeswoman John Kirby, Wagner paid for the weaponry.

We don’t think the material given to Wagner will change the situation on the battlefield in Ukraine, but we are worried that North Korea plans to send more military equipment. Kirby said.

Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a Russian oligarch, owns Wagner, which has paramilitary operations all over the world, particularly in the Middle East and Africa. For instance, their actions in Syria span a variety of areas. It also participates in political disinformation efforts on social media. U.S. sanctions have been placed on Prigozhin, Wagner, and their networks.

Kirby says that Vladimir Putin of Russia is “turning to Wagner for military help” more and more. According to Kirby, Wagner spends more than $100 million per month to finance the activities of his organization in Ukraine.

In his speech, Kirby criticized Prigozhin for his organization’s violations of human rights. He said that Wagner had separated itself from the Russian defense ministry and that, in some cases, “Russian military officers are subordinate to Wagner’s command, submissive to Wagner’s command.”

The Biden administration will now designate Wagner as a military end user. This will stop Wagner from getting any equipment made with American technology. Kirby says the government will also announce more steps against Wagner and others who help the group.
