It's somewhat strange that Alex refers to Prigozhin, the Wagner leader, stating that 5,000 of his men have fallen in the fight to take Bahkmut, when the BBC and almost the entire western media quote Prigozhin saying in one of his tiresome rants, that 20,000 of his men have been killed. |
Usually Alex is a stickler for detail, but here he chooses to completely ignore the western media coverage and translation of Prigozhin's statement, why? It seems odd to me. If Prigozhin is wildly exaggerating or has been mistranslated by the western media, including the BBC, it seems funny that Alex chooses to ignore the bizarre difference between his version of Prigozhin's words and the BBC. Doesn't this, potentially, harm Alex's credibility?
