The news of the arrest of the senior officer, who serves as the commander of the russian 72nd brigade, by Wagner, took many by surprise. However, this situation has been unfolding for some time now, as I mentioned in a thread over a month ago.

Image 2/ Although some people dismissed the information I previously provided as propaganda or lacking evidence, the ongoing power dynamics and events serve as evidence. Let's closely examine the situation

Important development:

🧵CAR Ambassador to Russia, Dodonu-Punagaza, in his interview to Izvestia stated the country's need for a Russian military base hosting 5,000-10,000 soldiers. It would serve CAR's interests and facilitate troop deployment in neighboring nations as well. 2/ Additionally, the ambassador confirmed that Simplice Sarandji, President of the National Assembly of the Central African Republic (CAR), has expressed a similar request for a Russian military base during his recent visit to Moscow.

New satellite imagery and official reports present evidence that the insufficient response to Wagner's activities in the Central African Republic fuels their aggressive expansion. For additional details on bloodstained African gold, please refer to my 🧵thread and video: 2/ Upon arriving in CAR, Wagner sought control over gold and diamond flows as part of resource securing efforts, often resorting to violence. For instance, last year, Wagner fighters attacked gold mines near the CAR-Sudan border. 27 December, 2020 (AFP)

Hello! Before the war, I was a sociologist who enjoyed traveling in Ukraine and abroad. Computer games, whiskey, and TV series were my pastimes. Now, I have a deep interest in studying new weapons and tactical medicine. Image

🧵Today, I want to discuss and share interesting details about the inadequate training of russian troops. This insight is based on my conversations with multiple officers across the frontlines in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts who shared with me details regarding prisoners of war. Image 2/ While russian training was subpar in comparison with NATO armies even before the invasion, the quality of their readiness is much lower even if we compare it with February 2022. Several anecdotes indicate that some soldiers haven't even fired a single shot prior to deployment

🧵Given the recent speech by Prigozhin, it is important to clarify the situation in Bakhmut. Based on compiled information that I am allowed to publish, it is true that Wagner is responsible for assaults and advances in Bakhmut. So why do things look grim on their end? Image 2/ Wagner convicts have limited value and only make advances when heavy artillery fire is present. If the artillery is suppressed or runs out of ammunition, they don't make progress. Unfortunately, the lack of ammunition on our side hinders counter-battery fire.

PMC Thread🧵:
1/ In my recent thread, I discussed a new "PMC" and promised to provide more information when possible.

This group is known as the "Wolves" and it is involved in an assault, scouting, and sabotage missions. But their story is more complex than that: Image 2/ Rather than gaining notoriety for their effectiveness, the Wolves have become the center of a brewing scandal. Hundreds of soldiers mobilized by the Ministry of Defense last year, unexpectedly found themselves as members of the PMC, of which they had no prior knowledge.

Although some changes have occurred since then, the general idea of the defenses remains the same

1/ It is my belief that NATO and the US have not fully committed to stop russia in Ukraine. However, there are areas within our own military that require attention. As discussed in Part I, I will reference an article by Glen Grant to discuss these issues Image 2/ Glen suggests that a priority policy should be implemented to replace all military personnel who are not performing frontline tasks with civilians who have comparable or better related skills. Additionally, the use of TrO volunteers should be considered.
