Moment Wagner chief EXPLODES with fury at Putin’s minions over Moscow drone attacks


The head of Russia‘s Wagner mercenary group has unleashed an explosive tirade of abuse at Vladimir Putin‘s cronies after Moscow was attacked this morning by suspected Ukrainian kamikaze drones.

In a furious 70-second rant, a ruthless Yevgeny Prigozhin screamed vulgar insults at Russia’s defence whom he described as ‘smelly scumbags’ and ‘b*******’.

The Wagner boss said he was ‘deeply outraged’ by Putin’s troops doing ‘f*** all’ to prevent explosive drones raining down on the Russian capital this morning. Shortly after, Putin claimed that Moscow’s air defence system worked ‘satisfactorily’.

Known for his foul-mouthed rants, Prigozhin, who handed Bakhmut over to Russia’s army last week, was translated as shouting: ‘Smelly scumbags! What are you doing? Get your a**** up from the offices you’ve been put in to protect this country.

‘You are the Ministry of Defence. You’ve done f*** all in order to advance.  Why the f*** are you allowing these drones to fly to Moscow? Who gives a s*** that they are flying to your homes on Rublyovka! Let your houses burn.

‘And what should ordinary people do when drones with explosives crash into their windows? So as a citizen, I am deeply outraged that these scum sit quietly with their fat a**** smeared with expensive creams. 

‘And that’s why I think the people have every right to ask them these questions, these b*******.

‘But I have already warned about this many times, but no one wants to listen. Because I’m angry and I upset bureaucrats who have a great life.’

His astonishing meltdown comes after several buildings in the wealthy suburbs of Moscow were damaged by suspected Ukrainian kamikaze drones, just hours after Putin unleashed yet another volley of strikes on Kyiv. 

Workers were pictured fixing damaged buildings, while smoke billowed across the Russian capital in the background. 

A deluded Putin and his cronies today accused Ukraine of trying to ‘frighten’ Russians with their ‘increasingly reckless behaviour’ after Moscow came under fire.

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 Kyiv had chosen the ‘path of trying to frighten the citizens of Russia’. 

The ranting Russian despot admitted there was ‘some work to do’ on Moscow’s air defence system in a sign of his growing frustration with Russia’s defences.

‘Moscow’s air defence system worked normally, satisfactorily, although there is some work to do,’ Putin said on Russian television.

Who is Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin?

Nicknamed ‘Putin’s chef’ due to owning a number of restaurants and catering firms that supply the Kremlin, Yevgeny Prigozhin is the oligarch founder of the notorious Wagner Group.

Prigozhin was born in the Soviet Union on June 1 1961, before spending a period of time in jail for numerous crimes including fraud and robbery, during his teens.

After spending 9 years in prison, Prigozhin launched a number of businesses following the collapse of the Soviet Union, including grocery and gambling firms.

In 2014, Prigozhin founded Wagner Group during Russia’s first invasion of Ukraine. The mercenary group has since become notorious for doing the Russian military’s dirty work, leaving behind trails 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 frontlines of the conflict with Ukraine, criticising Russian military leadership and accusing them of starving Wagner troops of supplies.

Air defences around Moscow – which as the capital of the world’s biggest nuclear power is already protected by an extensive early warning system – would be strengthened as a result, Putin said.

A Ukrainian presidential aide denied Kyiv was directly involved in the Moscow attack, but said Ukraine was enjoying watching events and forecast more to come.

‘Of course we are pleased to watch and predict an increase in the number of attacks. But of course we have nothing directly to do with this,’ Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said.

One kamikaze drone exploded into a mushroom cloud near the village of Usovo, which is just down the road from Putin’s official Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside of the capital.

‘[Putin’s residence] would be in earshot of the explosion,’ one local said.

In the city, explosive drones struck blocks of flats in Leninsky Prospekt and Profsoyuznaya Street about six miles from the centre of Moscow, reportedly wounding several residents and damaging the buildings.

Ukraine made no immediate comment on the attack, which would be one of its deepest and most daring strikes into 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  came under a kamikaze drone attack – a move which Russia described as an ‘assassination attempt’ on their leader.

Moscow has largely remained undisturbed since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine last February, although around 220,000 Russian troops have been killed in the war.
