Russian volunteer corps calls for battle: Wagner should take revenge on Putin

After the death of Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin, it is unclear what will happen to the Wagner mercenary group. The commander of the Russian Volunteer Corps (RVC), Denis Kapustin, calls on the fighters of the Wagner group to take revenge for the death of its founder Prigozhin and commander Utkin, who also died in the plane crash. This reports the German news website

“You are now faced with a difficult choice,” Kapustin says in a video address released that night. “You could stand in a Russian Defense Ministry guardhouse and serve as watchdogs for your commanders’ enforcers, or you could take revenge.” But if the Wagner really wanted to take revenge, Kapustin says, they would have to switch to Ukraine’s side. The RVC is a group of Russian fighters who fight for Ukraine.

On August 23, the former Wagner boss Prigozhin and nine other passengers were killed in a plane crash. It is unclear whether it was an accident or whether the plane was manipulated or shot down. Two months ago, Prigozhin marched with his mercenaries toward Moscow.
