Yevgeny Prigozhinek Vladimir Putini eman zion larunbatean (maiatzak 20) ​​Ukrainaren aurkako 15 hilabeteko gerran lortutako gudu-zelaiko garaipen bakanetako bat.

Orduan ere, Errusiako mertzenario boteretsuenak ezin izan zion eutsi Putinen sistema politikoa estu kontrolatzen zuten tabuak haustea.

Prigozhinek, sorbaldan pistola automatiko bat zuela errusiar bandera zuela, iragarri zuen Ukrainako Bakhmut hiria erori zen. Armatutako mertzenarioez eta bere Wagner taldearen estandar beltzaz inguratuta zegoen, baita hamarnaka eta milaka biktimaren hondar ikazkinez ere.

“Thanks to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin for giving us this opportunity, and the honour of defending motherland,” Prigozhin said, praising his own army of convicts and spies who fought house-to-house for 224 deadly days.

Orduan, bere gogoko diskurtsoari ekin zion, Putinen goi karguari traizioa leporatu zion. Bereziki, Sergei Shoigu Defentsa ministroa eta Valery Grasimov Estatu Nagusiko burua.

In the last month, he called Putin’s top generals “fucking b*tches” who will be forced to eat their own guts in hell. He accused them on Saturday of allowing more than five times as many men to die.

He said, “Someday they will have to answer for their evil deeds.” “We have a complete list of everyone who has helped us, and also of those that actively oppose us and helped the enemy.”

In Putin’s Russia such words are dangerous, as public criticism of Putin and his team from within the system is not tolerated.

Reuters reported that Prigozhin was not challenging Putin directly, but playing a joking role with those who were dismayed at the military’s handling of the war.

But his impertinence shows how the war, a term he uses defying a Kremlin-imposed ban, has affected Putin’s 23 year-old political system. It also has raised questions about Prigozhin’s future.

Reuters reported that “Prigozhin’s actions are a mystery.” Sergey Radchenko is a Cold War historian at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. What puzzles me about this is the image it projects, both in Russia and the West.

He said: “The image is one of chaos, of internal fighting, of Putin being distant or weak.” “Prigozhin wouldn’t make this slip by accident.”

Prigozhinek eta Kremlinek, baita Defentsa Ministerioak ere, ez zuten erantzun iruzkinak eskatu zirenean.

Shoigu and Geriasmov haven’t publicly responded to Prigozhin.

KRITIKA SAKONA

Prigozhinen bideo gogoangarrienean 5 maiatzean, Wagner mertzenarioz hildako zelai bat erakutsi zuen, munizio eskasagatik hil zirela esan zuen, Shoigu & Gerasimovek eragindakoa.

“Shoigu Gerasimov, where’s the fucker ammunition? Look at them, you bitches,” said he. “These are somebody’s fathers and sons.”

Prigozhinek kritika sakonagoak txertatu zituen biraoen artean: errusiar herriak gudu-zelaian baino intrigetan eta luxuan interesatuago zegoen elite militar benal baten suntsipenari aurre egin zion.

He warned against “fucking show off” in Red Square on Russia’s most important war anniversary. Shoigu, Putin and others were attending a reduced parade to mark the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany during World War Two.

He also made a joke about an unidentified “happy grandpa” , who might turn out to be “a complete dickhead”.

Prigozhin, “seems to be slipping, out of frustration, desperation and love of his voice, from outrageous, but understandable cries of help and attention, into self-destructiveness,” said a Western diplomat, who spoke under condition of anonymity.

“Prigozhin, however, would be a weak rebel with an armed forces without their own independent logistics capacity.”

According to a Russian source, who asked for anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation Prigozhin represents “one of the sides” of a battle within the Putin system.

Bi errealitate?

Agintera iritsi zenetik, 1999an, Putin KGBko teniente koronel ohiak sistema zurrun bat sortu du, askotan kaotikoa dena. Erregimenari egindako kritika publikoak ez dira onartzen.

Estatuko telebistak ez zuen Bakhmuten erorketaren berri eman 20 orduz. Hau da Prigozhinek arau hauek urratu zituela larriki hautematen zenaren adierazgarri garbia.

Emankizuna Errusiako Defentsa Ministerioak Ukrainan Errusiako erasoei buruz egindako hitzaldi batekin hasi zen. Ondoren, Moskuko tango ekitaldi bati buruzko erreportaje zabala eman zuen.

Prigozhin stated that “in our country there are two realities, the real and the one on TV.”

The Kremlin took 10 hours to issue a 36-word, terse statement congratulating Wagner on behalf of the armed forces for “liberating Artyomovsk”, the Soviet name for Bakhmut that Russia still uses. The statement did not mention Prigozhin.

Prigozhinek adierazi zuen Errusiar Armadak Bakhmut itzuliko zuela ekainaren 1ean eta bere indar guztiak atzealdeko kanpamenduetan ezarriko zituela, berriro behar izan arte.

Igor Girkin Segurtasun Zerbitzu Federaleko (FSB) ofizial ohia da, Errusiari Krimea eransten lagundu eta gero Errusiaren aldeko miliziak antolatu zituena Ukraina ekialdean zehar.

The contradictions within the ruling clique have led to the public controversy between Prigozhin’s Defence Ministry and the silenced Defence Ministry.

Ez dago argi 2024ko martxoan hauteskundeak dituen presidenteak oso luzaroan jasango duen gatazka publikoa.

Another Western diplomat said: “If Putin doesn’t do anything it will reveal his weakness. Prigozhin may not be indispensable, but he is very useful in a brutal way.”
