VLADIMIR Putin was known as an “a***gap” by his once-loyal chief henchman.
He had already criticised ammo shortages which helped Ukraine kill his males.
However he has adopted up with a video assault on “grandfather” Putin amid a bloodbath at Bakhmut.
He raged at Kremlin army chiefs: “They’re accumulating (artillery shells) in warehouses – why? Nobody is aware of.
“As an alternative of spending on a shell to kill the enemy and save the lives of our troopers, they let our troopers die — and the ‘glad grandfather’ thinks that is good for him. If he seems to be proper, then God bless everyone.
“However how will we win the struggle, if, by likelihood — and I’m simply speculating — it seems that this grandfather is an entire a***gap?”
Putin is also known as the “grandfather” in Russia — or as “Bunker grandfather” by critics.
It got here a day after Putin’s humiliating annual Victory Day Parade in Moscow, which was graced by a single, rusting T-34 tank.
Ukraine gloated that the scores of tanks paraded throughout Putin’s celebrations final 12 months at the moment are blasted hulks destroyed within the struggle.
Wagner’s boss, whose military accommodates hundreds of criminals sprung from jail, final week hit out at minister Sergei Shoigu and army chief Valery Gerasimov.
He warned he would withdraw his males in the event that they weren’t given extra shells — however later reined again.
In his newest rant, Prigozhin added: “The shells give freedom. And in the event that they don’t give freedom with the shells . . . in the event that they hold holding on to them then first we have to shove it up their a*** and throw them in jail.”
The foul-mouthed tirade is one other signal of division amongst Russia’s leaders.
Moscow press aide Dmitry Peskov refused to debate Prigozhin’s assault.
