Wagner boss expresses 'joy' over Victoria Nuland
Wagner chief Evgeny Prigozhin says he is proud of the members of his private military company as simply mentioning their name can compel Washington to reassess its positions. Acting US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland recently urged Niger's new military government not to enlist the help of the Russian contractors.

Speaking to journalists over the phone on Tuesday [07.08.23], Prigozhin was asked to comment on Nuland's personal visit to Niger and her advice to the new government not to strike any deals with Wagner.

"I am proud of the boys from Wagner," replied Prigozhin. "Just the thought of them makes ISIS and Al Qaeda small, obedient, silky boys. And the US has recognized a government that it did not recognize yesterday just to avoid meeting the Wagner PMC in the country."

"This brings joy, Mrs. Nuland," he quipped.
