Most of the Wagner Group fighters step back into the ranks, continuing to take part in the battles for Donbass on the side of the Russian army, even after severe wounds, said businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin.
Prigozhin responded to a question from the editorial board of the RTVI TV channel about who pays for prosthetics for the wounded. He said that loss of limbs is not the heaviest injury of the Wagner Group fighters. After the prosthetics, many of them go back to active duty, demonstrating a high sense of duty and a desire not to put shame on their fathers and children.
According to Prigozhin, he does everything necessary to bring the fighters back to normal life, as well as personally pays for their treatment.
“Of course, I do everything necessary to ensure that they not only come back to normal life, but also get back into action. I have been paying for all this out of my pocket for almost 10 years,” wrote the press service of Concord, citing Prigozhin.
He stressed that the Wagner Group fighters performs low-profile work for the benefit of their country, which is difficult to overestimate. They do not hype their actions on YouTube, unlike couch experts, he said.
Prigozhin advised all critics of the Wagner Group to imagine their children in the place of fighters who had lost their arms and legs.
