Wagner PMC Soldiers Back from Ukraine Clash with National Guard in Tyva

Paul Goble

            Staunton, July 20 – A group of Wagner PMC soldiers who have returned to the Russian Federation after service in Ukraine clashed with National Guardsmen in the Republic of Tyva, after the former got drunk and denounced the Guardsmen for failing to fight well in Ukraine but not after the guardsmen in response fired their weapons into the air and arrested the Wagnerites.

            This incident was first reported by the Ostorzhno Novosti telegram channel and then picked up by the NeMoskva news agency ( and Small in itself, the clash may be a harbinger of worse to come and another reason the Prigozhin case is far from over.

            Apparently, this clash was not about ethnicity as the list of names of the Wagnerites arrested are all Tyvan; but it is certain that such fights could easily take on an ethnic dimension in non-Russian areas if the Wagnerites involved are of one nationality and those of the local police forces of another.
