The head of Russia’s Wagner mercenary group has unleashed an explosive tirade of abuses against Vladimir Putin’s cronies after Moscow was attacked this morning by suspected Ukrainian kamikaze drones.
In a furious 70-second tirade, a ruthless Yevgeny Prigozhin yelled vulgar insults at Russia’s defense, describing them as “stinking scum” and “b*******.”
Wagner’s boss said he was “deeply outraged” by Putin’s troops doing “fucking up everything” to prevent explosive drones from falling on the Russian capital this morning. Soon after, Putin claimed that Moscow’s air defense system was working “satisfactorily”.
Prigozhin, known for his foul-mouthed rants, who handed Bakhmut over to the Russian army last week, was translated as a shout: ‘Stinking garbage! What are you doing? Rise from the offices you have been placed in to protect this country.
You are the Ministry of Defense. You’ve done everything to move forward. Why the hell are you allowing these drones to fly to Moscow? Who cares that they fly to their homes in Rublyovka! Let your houses burn.

‘And what are ordinary people to do when explosive drones crash into their windows? So, as a citizen, I am deeply outraged that this scum sits quietly with his butt smeared with expensive creams.
‘And that’s why I think people have every right to ask these questions, these bitches.
‘But I have already warned about this many times, but no one wants to listen. Because I’m angry and upset at the bureaucrats who have a great life.’
Its stunning collapse comes after several buildings in wealthy Moscow suburbs were damaged by suspected Ukrainian kamikaze drones, just hours after Putin unleashed another barrage of attacks on Kiev.
Workers were pictured repairing damaged buildings, as smoke billowed over the Russian capital in the background.
A misled Putin and his cronies today accused Ukraine of trying to “scare” the Russians with its “increasingly reckless behaviour” after Moscow was attacked.
Seemingly forgetting that Russia has unleashed a series of deadly airstrikes on Ukrainian cities that have killed thousands in the past 15 months, Putin claimed that Kiev had chosen the “path of trying to scare the citizens of Russia.”
The ranting Russian despot admitted there was “some work to be done” on Moscow’s air defense system in a sign of his growing frustration with Russia’s defences.
“Moscow’s air defense system worked normally, satisfactorily, although there is still work to be done,” Putin said on Russian television.

Who is the head of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin?
Nicknamed ‘Putin’s chef’ due to owning several restaurants that cater to the Kremlin, Yevgeny Prigozhin is the founding oligarch of the notorious Wagner Group.
Prigozhin was born in the Soviet Union on June 1, 1961, before serving time in jail for numerous crimes, including fraud and theft, as a teenager.
After spending 9 years in prison, Prigozhin launched a series of businesses after the collapse of the Soviet Union, including grocery and gambling companies.
In 2014, Prigozhin founded the Wagner Group during the first Russian invasion of Ukraine. Since then, the mercenary group has become famous for doing the dirty work of the Russian military, leaving behind traces of brutal violence, rape and war crimes.
Prigozhin long denied any affiliation with the group until September 2022, when he admitted to founding the mercenary force.
He is often seen on the front lines of the conflict with Ukraine, criticizing the Russian military leadership and accusing it of starving Wagner’s troops of supplies.

Air defenses around Moscow, which as the capital of the world’s largest nuclear power is already protected by an extensive early warning system, will be strengthened as a result, Putin said.
A Ukrainian presidential aide denied that kyiv was directly involved in the Moscow attack, but said Ukraine was enjoying watching the events and predicted more to come.
“Of course we are happy to observe and predict an increase in the number of attacks. But of course we have nothing to do directly with this,’ Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said.
A kamikaze drone exploded in a mushroom cloud near the village of Usovo, which is located on the same street as Putin’s official residence in Novo-Ogaryovo, on the outskirts of the capital.
‘[Putin’s residence] would be within earshot of the explosion,’ said a local.

In the city, explosive drones struck apartment blocks on Leninsky Prospekt and Profsoyuznaya Street about six miles from central Moscow, reportedly injuring several residents and damaging buildings.
Ukraine had no immediate comment on the attack, which would be one of the deepest and boldest on Russia since the Kremlin launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine more than 15 months ago.
It is the second time Moscow has come under attack this month after the Kremlin was attacked by a kamikaze drone, a move Russia described as an “assassination attempt” against its leader.
Moscow has remained largely undisturbed since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine last February, although around 220,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the war.
