The Kremlin did not see the May 9 appeal by Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of PMC Wagner, in which he says that his units received only 10 percent from the necessary projectiles. This was announced on May 10 by the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov to journalists.

He noted that he could not say anything about the appeal, since there were many guests and many festive events on May 9, writes RIA News.

Formerly Yevgeny Prigozhin declared about the intention to leave positions in Artyomovsk (Ukrainian name Bakhmut) due to “shell hunger”. After that, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, proposed replacing the Wagner fighters with the Akhmat special forces. He sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin with this request. Yevgeny Prigozhin, in response, confirmed his readiness to give way to Akhmat. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov then did not comment possible withdrawal of PMCs from Artyomovsk, but noted that the Kremlin had seen Prigozhin’s statement.
