More About Yevgeny Prigozhin

Prigozhin frequently goes by the moniker “Putin’s chef” since he owns eateries and catering businesses that work for the Kremlin. Formerly imprisoned in the Soviet Union, Prigozhin now oversees a network of powerful businesses, including the Wagner Group, a mercenary firm funded by the Russian government, and three organisations suspected of interfering with the 2016 and 2018 US elections. In 2022, Bellingcat, The Insider, and Der Spiegel conducted an investigation into Prigozhin’s operations and found that they “are tightly integrated with Russia’s Defence Ministry and its intelligence arm, the GRU.”

On September 26, 2022, after years of denial, he acknowledged that he founded Wagner. He claimed to have started it in May 2014 in order to aid Russian military fighting in the Donbass. This revelation was made in response to a widely shared film in which Prigozhin was shown infiltrating a Mari El jail and enticing convicts by offering them freedom if they cooperated with the Wagner Group for six months. Additionally, Prigozhin had long denied any involvement in Russian electoral meddling. However, he acknowledged his involvement in such activities in November 2022 and declared they would continue. He claimed to be the creator and longtime manager of the Internet Research Agency, a Russian business charged with conducting internet propaganda operations, in February 2023.

In the US, Prigozhin, his businesses, and connections are subject to criminal and economic penalties, and he continues to be a designated person in the UK. A reward of up to $250,000 is being offered by the FBI for information that results in Prigozhin’s capture. In connection with his funding of Wagner Group’s actions in Libya, Prigozhin was subject to penalties from the European Union (EU) in October 2020. The EU put fresh restrictions on him in April 2022 as a result of his participation in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

On June 23, 2023, Prigozhin declared war on the Russian military hierarchy and announced the entry of his forces into the country. He first took Rostov-on-Don before advancing on Moscow. According to Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, Prigozhin would travel to Belarus as part of the negotiated resolution to his PMC’s uprising. A criminal complaint was filed against him but was later dismissed.
