As we know, Russia is a closed communist country, it has a dictatorial president who ruled the country for more than 20 years, it is a country armed with nuclear weapons, and it is one of the countries that produces the most weapons. Less than a failure in his administrative capacity, Prigozhin, who was President Putin’s chef, has no prior political history.

A notorious mercenary leader, Prigozhin leads Wagner’s special forces in Russia’s aggressive war against Ukraine. His leadership history in Moscow spans decades.
What is Wagner Group?
The Wagner group is a mercenary organization that was working for half of the Russian army when they invaded Ukraine. Wagner’s history appears to have been in 2014, when a conflict broke out between Ukraine and Russia over the Crimean region.
