Boczkała posted a photo on Telegram showing clouds of smoke rising above the stadium in Kadyjewka. The reporter stated that “the stadium in Stakhanov is on fire (the new old name Kadyjewka, which the occupying authorities returned to the Lugansk People’s Republic – ed.), where the Wagnerists base was located.”
On May 31, the Ukrainian Security Service published a record of the intercepted conversation of Russian soldiers, which revealed that mercenaries from the Wagner Group had been crushed by Ukrainian forces in the Donbass. At the end of March, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced that the Kremlin had stepped up its activities in the region by bringing in reinforcements there, including about 1,000 Wagnery followers.
The Wagner Group is a private military company linked – according to the media – to the pro-Kremlin businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. Since mid-December 2021, the Wagners have been under EU sanctions for torture, execution and murder, including in Libya, Syria and Donbass. The independent newspaper “Novaya Gazeta” in Russia reported on the crimes of the Wagnerists in Syria. The activity of mercenaries is officially prohibited in Russia.
