“We are closely monitoring all parts of the world, including the US State Department”

Yevgeny Prigozhin responded to US State Department claims that Wagner is receiving satellite imagery from China's Spacety Co. 

He stated that he did not need to purchase satellite images, since his PMC has its own satellite constellation. 

 “We don't have any need to buy satellite imagery. PMC "Wagner" for a year and a half has almost two dozen satellites, some of which are radar, and the rest are optical. Therefore, the US State Department has fallen a little in time, ”said Prigozhin.

 “We are closely monitoring all parts of the world, including the US State Department,” he added.

The Chinese company Spacety Co provided Russia with satellite images

This was stated by US Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Daniel Kritenbrink, CNN reports. “One of the blacklisted companies, Spacety Co, provided satellite imagery of Russia,” he said.

Kritenbrink added that the United States is bringing information about the possibility of China providing military assistance to Russia. Previously, Spacety was blacklisted by the US Department of Commerce, which implies restrictions on operations, "based on information indicating that they provide significant support to the Russian Armed Forces and / or companies in the Russian military-industrial complex, and also carry out activities that are contrary to US interests in the field of national security and international politics".
