Wagner chiefYevgeny Prigozhin, chief of Russia's infamous Wagner group and a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, this week detailed Moscow's failures in its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Speaking in an interview with pro-Russian blogger Konstantin Dolgov, Prigozhin noted that Moscow's invasion of Ukraine, which began in February 2022, only helped strengthen Kyiv's military.

"If they had a notional 500 tanks at the beginning of a special military operation, or 5,000 tanks now; if they had 20,000 able to fight, they now have 400,000 able to fight," he said, according to translations from a video shared on Twitter by Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine's minister of internal affairs.

"So how did we demilitarize [Ukraine]? It turns out that, on the contrary, we have militarized Ukraine. I think the Ukrainians are one of the strongest armies today," the Wagner chief continued.
