The Ukrainian military told CNN that the Wagner had returned to the Bakhmut area.
A soldier with the pseudonym "Groove" said: "Yes, Wagner is here too. They came back, quickly changed commanders and returned here."
He also noted that the presence of this group may be a partial attempt by Russia to compensate for the lack of military personnel.
"Russia gathered troops from the surrounding areas and moved them here. They don't have many personnel left here," explained the Ukrainian military.
Earlier, the commander of the Tavria group, Oleksandr Tarnavsky, who is responsible for the Zaporizhzhia direction, said that Wagners appear in different directions and "their chevrons appear here and there constantly."
