Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Russian private military company Wagner, acknowledged a “major problem” with ammunition supplies for his troops, amid a public spat with the leaders of Russia’s defense establishment.
>>> Good evening. I’m Pamela brown in for Erin Burnett tonight. Welcome to a special edition of “Outfront.” And tonight, ready for anything, Ukraine’s military preparing for provocative acts by rucha to mark the one-year anniversary of its invasion. The warning as president Biden made an unprecedented surprise visit to Kyiv to meet with
President zelenskyy, sending a painful reminder to Putin of how his invasion plans have failed. The visit also stinging Russian troops already dealing with major morale issues. A telegram account managed by Russian military bloggers noting Biden has done something Putin has not, saying, quote, almost a year after the beginning of the
Special military operation, we are waiting in the Russian city of Kyiv for the president of the Russian Federation but not for the president of the united States. And the man Putin has turned to in hopes of winning this war is also now complaining he lacks the necessary equipment. Yevgeny prigozhin, the head of
The Wagner group, the brutal private mercenary group, saying this. >> Translator: All the questions I raised about ammunition, unfortunately, stay completely unresolved. And it is the most serious problem. I’m unable to solve this problem despite all my connections, contacts, and everything is sinking and sticking. >> But Russia still showing no
Signs of retreat at all, including in Ukraine’s eastern donetsk region, which is under constant shelling as Putin looks for any claim to victory just hours before a major speech to his country. We have reporters tonight in Ukraine and Russia. Fred pleitgen is in Moscow. But let’s start with Alex Marquardt in Kyiv.
Alex, what is the latest there on the ground where you are? >> Reporter: Well, Pamela, president Biden is now back across the border. He is in Warsaw tonight. He was here in Kyiv not just at a symbolic moment, because we are marking the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion
Of Ukraine later this week, but at a strategic moment as well. This is a real inflexion point in this conflict. Ukraine is expected in the coming weeks to mount a new counteroffensive, to try to take back territory. Likely in the southern part of the country. That is what at least some of
The $500 million military aid package was going to be aimed at that was announced today at near-term offensive objectives. At the same time, Pamela, we are starting to see the early stages of a new Russian offensive on at least four different axes in the eastern part of the country.
It is not going well for them. They are losing a lot of men. Now, both offensives due to start early as this war enters its second year. Pamela? Russian forces trying, and so far, failing to make real headway in the opening stages of a new offensive in eastern Ukraine.
A devastating toll on both sides in the months-long battle for back multiwhere Ukraine is mostly facing mercenaries and convicts from the private Wagner group. Taking the time to thank president Joe Biden for his historic visit to Ukraine. >> Translator: This is the most powerful message of support for Ukraine at this moment.
>> Reporter: In the capital, the U.S. And Ukrainian presidents seemingly undeterred by an air raid siren trying to show the world they are in lockstep. Together briefly visiting St. Michael’s church before emerging to lay a pair of wreaths. The Ukrainian and American flags in front of a wall of portraits
Of soldiers who died in the fight with Russia. Biden keen to remind Russian president Vladimir Putin of his failures in the past year. >> Putin thought Ukraine was weak and the west was divided. As you know, Mr. President, I said to you at the beginning, he’s counting on us not sticking together.
He thought he could outlast us. I don’t think he’s thinking that right now. >> Reporter: While zelenskyy called the moment the most important in the history of the u.s./ukraine relationship. >> Translator: This is the visit in this most difficult period for Ukraine when Ukraine is fighting for our own liberty.
Today our negotiations were very fruitful. They were very important and crucial. >> Reporter: Negotiations about continued military aid. Today president Biden announcing an almost half-billion dollars aid package for Ukraine, including ammunition, and air defenses. But big-ticket items that Ukraine wants, like longer-range missiles and fighter jets still up for discussion.
>> Translator: This conversation brings us closer to victory. >> Reporter: This surprised unprecedented visit on the eve of a bloody anniversary. Extreme secrecy shrouding Biden’s journey. No word, but there were signs, deserted streets and a heavy police presence suggesting a prominent arrival. President Biden quietly left Washington for Poland just after
4:00 A.M. Under the cover of darkness, and after a long train ride across western Ukraine, arrived to warm smiles and laughter from Ukraine’s first couple. His feelings left in a hand-written message about solidarity and friendship, which was echoed on the streets of Kyiv. >> Translator: It is support for
Us and a message for the Russians that this issue must be resolved and Ukraine must win. We hope that his visit will speed up the events. >> Reporter: And, Pamela, the white house says that they warned the Kremlin that Biden would be here in Ukraine several hours before he arrived, part of
What they call the deconfliction process. Now, national security adviser Jake Sullivan, who was with Biden, he did not say what the message was to the Kremlin, nor what their response was. But it was clear they did not want anything to happen for Biden while he was here for almost 24 hours in Ukraine.
Here's how I look at this conflict.. it's not Russian troops in the Frontline, it's just some guys, remember the blackwater guys.. if you have some guys that are expendable, send them first, then your troops.
My, how everything can change SO quickly….
These kinds of things are what happens when people get involved with people like Putin and Trump…
Go and supply them…cut backs on Robots…f**king joke Russia is…I liked this video yes!!!!👍😅 #BleitGiveFundsForRobotsBleitItIsGoingWell£$£$£$£$£
Declare war against Wagner war criminals.
DONT WORRY ABOUT THE AMO CNN IS ALL BS.
why would he tell us that
Prigozhin is acting as a small stone in the shoe. Slava Ukraine.
Wagner is a criminal organization. It’s leader must face criminal justice.
Your Wagner men, and your leader, and the leader of Russia, will be exterminated.
Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak. Sunzi art of war. Only dumb people believe russian is running out of ammo.
THIS VIDEO WAS WHAT? THIS WAS RECENTLY RIGHT? YET THERE ARE VIDEOS NOW JUST TODAY OR YESTERDAY SHOWING THAT THEY ARE TAKING TWO MAJOR OBJECTIVES. GO WAGNER GROUP GO RUSSIA GO CHINA GO ANYONE WHO IS NOT AMERICA OR ISRAEL AND I AM A LIGHT SKIN BLONDE HAIR BLUE-EYED WHITE BOY IN AMERICA RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BREAD BASKET AND I HATE THIS COUNTRY BOY I DON'T HAVE TO BE A MUSLIM BUT I LOVE MUSLIMS. I WAS RAISED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CHRISTIAN HYPOCRISY. THE SAME CHRISTIANS WHO HAD THE WHAT DO THEY CALL IT THE CONQUERING THEY WERE ON MISSIONS TO BRING GOD TO PEOPLE YOU LYING SONS OF B******. YOU ARE EVIL BEYONDING IMAGINABLE.
Putinate afraid of America and Putin ain't lost Putin Putin did not lose and Putin has taken losses only because he was trying to be easy and trying to give chances in time and America did not talk about the ukrainians mast along the border did they? Ukrainians have been killing people of Russian descent and Vladimir's Alaska took away people's rights and he is outlawed Russian language and all kinds of stuff and freedoms just like america. AMERICA CALLS ITSELF GRAY AND IT QUOTES THESE THINGS THESE PHRASES OF B***** IT DOES NOT HONOR LIKE A SUPPOSEDLY GREAT COURT SYSTEM. WELL THE BASIC PREMISE OF THAT COURT SYSTEM IS THAT A DEFENDANT IS ALLOWED TO BE CONSIDERED INNOCENT TILL PROVEN GUILTY BUT THAT'S BACKWARD BECAUSE YOU'RE JAILED UNTIL YOU'RE DONE FRIED. BUT IN AMERICA YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN EQUAL SAME COURT AND YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE ACCESS TO EVIDENCE AND WITNESSES AND EVERYTHING BUT YET AMERICA CUTS OFF RUSSIAN NEWS.
IF YOU CANNOT FIND 10% OF RUSSIAN NEWS 10% AS MUCH AS THE ACCESS YOU HAVE TO THE AMERICAN LIES THEN AMERICA IS A HYPOCRITE AND A LIAR. AND THE NATO LINE HAS EXPANDED ALL THE WAY TO RUSSIA'S FRONT PORCH. THIS S*** IS SO BASIC THAT YOU SHEEP GET LOST IN THE 30 YEARS IN BETWEEN OF COURSE. BUT THAT'S THE PREMISE. LAVROV TOLD IT EASILY IN INDIA AND HE PROVE THAT IT'S ALIVE WHEN THEY SAY THAT THE MINSK ACCORD WAS A LIE IT WAS NOT. OR ELSE RUSSIA WOULD NOT HAVE CONCEITED FOR HIS RUSSIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BIGGER MAN. THE RUSSIANS ARE RESPONSIBLE MORE THAN ONE TIME FOR STANDING DOWN AND AVOIDING A NEW NUCLEAR WAR. THEY DID IT IN THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS WHICH AMERICA STARTED BY PUTTING NUKES NEAR RUSSIA IN TURKEY. ALSO CHOSE NOT TO LAUNCH NUKES WHEN THEY WERE BEING BOMBED WITH DEPTH CHARGES. ANY AMERICANS WOULD HAVE LOST LONG AGO. AND THERE WERE OTHER OCCASIONS I READ ABOUT RUSSIA WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR BEING THE BIGGER MAN. THEY ALWAYS ARE THEY ALWAYS HAVE BEEN AMERICA HAS A F**** FREAK SHOW ADMINISTRATION AND THE ONLY MAN WHO WAS EVER AN HONEST PRESIDENT AND BUSTED OUT PEOPLE AND SAID THAT HE USES A SYSTEM AND THAT'S HOW HE KNOWS HIS CRICKET IS DONALD TRUMP. THEY TALK S*** ABOUT HIM WHEN HE WARNED GERMANY NOT TO BE TOO DEPENDENT ON RUSSIAN FUEL. THEY LAUGHED AT HIM LITERALLY AT A SPEECH IN EUROPE I THINK IT WAS. AND THEY GOT THEIR ASSES HANDED TO THEM. AND THEY LAUGHED AT HIM AND CALLED HIM RACIST FOR SAYING THE VIRUS CAME FROM CHINA WHICH WAS CLEAR EVEN IF IT WASN'T INTENTIONAL. BUT NOW THEY ARE SAYING IT WASN'T INTENTIONAL OR ACCIDENTALLY IN A LAB ANYWAY WHICH THEY SAID WAS WRONG OF TRUMP TO SAY. TRUMP S*** HAS COME TRUE ALL THE TIME. I COULDN'T STAND THE GUY EITHER BUT I DID VOTE FOR HIM IN A MINUTE MAN AGAIN BECAUSE HE'S THE ONLY REAL GUY WE'VE EVER SEEN I THINK KENNEDY WAS A FUNNY TOO.
ALTHOUGH I AM GIVEN TO BELIEVE THAT A PRESIDENT HAS GOT TO HAVE A LOT OF PHONINESS HAS GOES ANY LEVEL OF HIGH LEVEL POLITICIAN TRUMP HAD VERY LITTLE I DON'T KNOW IF HE HAD ANY BECAUSE HE WAS FULLY HATED BY THE OTHERS. AND IF YOU ARE A TRUE HUMANITARIAN POLITICS SHOULDN'T BE A DIRTY WORD. AND YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT PEOPLE AND YOU SHOULD HAVE OPEN DEBATE THE LEFT HAS NONE OF THAT THEY HAD ONLY HATE. THEY FELT THEY WERE ENTITLED TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SO WEAK AND SHEEPISH THAT YOU PEOPLE BRING ON THIS YOU'RE THE ONLY ONES WHO IS ALLOWED IT AND ONLY YOU HAVE ALLOWED US TO BECOME THIS CLOSE TO NUCLEAR WAR. AND IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER IF IT DOESN'T HAPPEN THIS TIME. YOU COULD HAPPEN WITHIN 3 YEARS. THERE ARE SOME THINK TANKS WHO DO BELIEVE IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AND THEY BELIEVE THAT THE UKRAINIAN CONFLICT WILL FIRST DIE DOWN AND THERE WILL BE TWO CONSECUTIVE WARS OCCURRING AT THE SAME TIME. IS SO DEEP AND SO IMPARTIAL AND PAST THEMSELVES IN THE BACK AN ADMINISTRATOR BETWEEN RUSSIA BLINKING AND LAVROV RECENTLY WENT BLINKING GOT UP AND TOLD HIS LIES AND LAVROV TOLD PROVEN TRUTH AND MINDY IS PATTING THEMSELVES ON THE BACK AND VIDEOS. INDIA IS PATTING THEMSELVES ON THE BACKING VIDEOS YET THOSE SAME PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO BE READY TO GO TO WAR AGAINST PAKISTAN. AND THERE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY WHICH HAD A REAL PRESIDENT AND AMERICA WAS INVOLVED IN GETTING HIM OUSTED WITH THEIR CROOKED CIA B******. F** AMERICA AND F*** YOU AND F*** EVERY MOTHER F*** IN VIETNAM WHO THINKS YOU WERE A HERO BECAUSE YOU WERE A BABY KILLER JACK YOU WERE THE BAD GUY AND SOMEONE ELSE'S BACKYARD TALKING ABOUT DEFENDING YOUR COUNTRY EVERY TIME AMERICA IS IN SOMEONE ELSE'S COUNTRY AND SOMEONE ELSE'S BACKYARD LIKE THE BULLY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ALWAYS SAYING THAT SOMEONE ELSE STARTED IT THE HOUSE COME THAT BULLY IS ALWAYS IN SOMEONE ELSE'S BACKYARD? BECAUSE AMERICA IS EVIL JACK PIECES OF S***
LONG LIVE RUSSIA ☝️💪✊👊✌️
TO HELL WITH SLEAZY NATO …GOD BLESS Mr Putin
A clever way for Russia to get the West to rapport that Wagner alone is actually getting more supplies that the whole Ukrainian army.
The followup from Prigozhin is that he is actually now get between 120% and 150% of his orders.
Again, if you look at the numbers Wagner is getting more supplies than the whole of the Ukraine army.
Pronounce Kyiv/Keiv correctly. Look it up!
The lipstick outline on that anchor lady is driving me nuts.
Russia is just bluffing of losing ammunition. We should not be complacent. We should be ready against russia…
ROTFL. Russian planners were so confident of a quick victory that they forgot about logistics and strategy, which more than anything account for the Russian catastrophe. The Russian army that invaded Ukraine was considered the second best in the world. It's now buried in Ukraine and what's left is barely the second best army in Ukraine. The replacement army can hardly be expected to accomplish what Russia's best could not.
He should sink in hell !!
Russia don’t need equipment for a win. Quantity of men is a quality for them in itself. They gonna throw bodies until problem goes away.
Lol this was a psyop
Don't Believe ANYTHING these Wagner people or Russian Politicians say. NOTHING
We all now have to stand to show NO SYMPATHY – NO CARE for and TURN A BLIND EYE to ANY pro-Putin sentiment in Russia.
The Media can state alarming headlines that issue Russian emotional psychology.
Media needs to be careful here, because this inadvertently issues possible "sympathy" for Russia.
Pro-Putin followers will read it and laugh and mock others, saying "See, even Media feels scared of us!"
But the Media states information – so, it has the opportunity to CHOOSE its words affectively.
The media can state this same news but put more of an IRON WALL sentiment – such as
Russia CRIES LIKE A BRAINED-WASHED BABY AGAIN by following Putin's speech. If you put that spin on any news that informs of how Russia has been supporting Putin. Then it grows a stronger resilience and psychological attitude for people who are trying to stop the awful Putin invasion.
MEDIA can and should NOW change its way of informing any news of Russia's support by giving it a NEGATIVE feeling in its headlines.
Headlines can be: "Typical" Brain-washed Russia is enslaved by Putin's words.
UNSURPRISED AT THE BRAIN-WASHED RUSSIANS being throttled by Putin's enchantment.
Drive more of these kinds of headlines and you will see that this sentiment can boost and strengthen the psychology of anti-Putin attitude. Stop making the public feel they are in the negative of Putin, give the public a chance to feel more confident in their powers against Putin.
When the Media does this – THEN it can inform pro-Putin followers to understand that the MIGHT against Putin is there and the REALITY IS – to CONTINUE TO REPEAT and DRUM IN THE FACT – EVIL HAS TAKEN PLACE AND IT SHALL NOT AND WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
