Girkin refused to fight with Wagner after insulting Prigozhin
Terrorist Igor Girkin (Strelkov) refused to participate in the war against Ukraine as part of PMC «Wagner» after being insulted by the leader of the Russian mercenaries Yevgeny Prigozhin. Girkin stated this in Telegram.
Former leader of militants «DNR» noted that on Friday he discussed a possible meeting at which they could agree on his participation in the war as part of & # 171; Wagner & # 187;, and even promised within two days & # 171; to move to Lugansk for a personal conversation & # 187; .« completely excludes the possibility of my participation in this PMC. I will not be able to serve under the leadership of a man who openly accused me of betraying Russia. Not to mention the dirty insults that accompanied these accusations,” Girkin said.
Prigozhin invited Girkin to the front in the occupied part of the Lugansk region. In response, the terrorist said that he had not received any concrete proposals. Later, the conflict developed. In particular, the founder of Wagner PMC accused the ex-leader of the militants of «surrendering Slavyansk», «taking money from Akhmetov» and «threw the boys». He also insulted him and threatened to «piss on his face» if he tried to run away from the battlefield.
