During the storming of Artemivsk, more fighters were killed than Soviet soldiers during the war in Afghanistan.

The head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, said this in an interview with former DNR Foreign Minister Konstantin Dolgov, PolitNavigator’s correspondent reports.

A little later, in an interview, he said that more than 10 thousand fighters were killed by PMCs in Artemovsk.

The PMC chief rejected accusations of “butchering” former prisoners.
