The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov commented on the information that there is allegedly a conflict between the Ministry of Defense and the Wagner PMCs. According to him, this statement is "only in the information space", and it was made by opponents for manipulation.

"This conflict exists in the information space," Dmitry Peskov commented. He added that such messages "are sometimes spread by our information opponents, and sometimes by friends", so all such statements should be treated calmly.

Dmitry Peskov noted that both the Russian military and the military personnel from the Wagner PMCs are doing one thing in common — they are "fighting for the motherland".

"That's the way to treat it", - the presidential press secretary said. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

Recall that on the eve of the Ministry of Defense highly appreciated the role of the Wagner PMCs in the storming of the city of Soledar. "This combat task was successfully solved by the courageous and selfless actions of the volunteers of the assault detachments of the Wagner PMCs", - the Defense Ministry said. The city was taken under control on the evening of January 12. The day before, this was also announced by the founder of the Wagner PMCS, Yevgeny Prigozhin, but that day the Defense Ministry only talked about blocking the city from the north and south sides.
