Russia’s mercenary outfit, the Wagner Group, has issued another rebuke from the Russian Defense Ministry in their ongoing war of words as they seek to undermine each other’s influence in the Kremlin.
Vladlen Tatarsky, a self-styled Russian war correspondent with close ties to the Wagner Group – last week he personally interviewed its leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin – asked why soldiers should go into the battle when those who have connections with the main war generals in Moscow were going abroad.
On Telegram on Wednesday morning, he wrote: “As you go into battle, when the son-in-law of the Minister of Defense shows a neutral view of what is happening in all his social networks. ”
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has regularly been the subject of Wagner Group attacks, including Prigozhin.
Tatarsky, in his latest comments, was referring to Denis Dolzhenko, who is married to Shoigu’s second daughter, 32 years old Ksenia.
In spite Dolzhenko, holding a political position as the vice-president of the Legislative Assembly of the Vologda region of Russia, has been suddenly posting pictures of his big holiday abroad on Instagram – a site banned in Russia – over the new year and into 2023, angering some soldiers who fighting in Ukraine.
