Political expert: Prigozhin will try to repeat the mutiny

Jul 2, 2023

Russian sociologist, political expert and publicist Igor Eidman believes that when the Russian central authorities weaken, Prigozhin will try to repeat the uprising with the help of the Russian security services.


He said this on the air of the TV channel "Yespresso".

"So far it is difficult to assess what has been taken away from Prigozhin, and what remains with him. Prigozhin is a typical adventurer of the Civil War. Such people don't stop. Feeling powerful, he felt he was the master of Russia. Undoubtedly, he will want to do it again. I have no doubt that he will try to do so. But the tools will surely be different. Most probably it won't be a massive march of his private army to Moscow, they don't do it twice," said Eidman.

According to the political expert, Prigozhin will try to commit an insurgency with the help of the security forces of Russia.

"Most likely, there will be a conspiracy of people he bribed in the security forces over the many years of ownership of the Wagner PMC, when he participated in various Russian military operations. He bought different people. Surovikin is the tip of the iceberg, in fact, there are many such people. He will retain this resource, and when the central authorities weaken, perhaps after another military defeat, Prigozhin will try to repeat it. He has already had experience and will try to make a successful remake," suggested Eidman.
