Advisor to the Head of the Presidential Office Mykhailo Podolyak believes that the founder of the Wagner PMC, Yevhen Prigozhin, has shown the Russian authorities that there is no longer a monopoly on violence.
According to Ukrinform, Podolyak expressed this opinion on Twitter.
"Phenomenal choice of Prigozhin... You almost nullified Putin, took control of the central authorities, reached Moscow, and suddenly... turn back. Because one very specific mediator with a dubious reputation (Lukashenko) promised security guarantees from the man (Putin) who ordered your destruction in the morning. And given the fear that Putin's elite has experienced over the past 24 hours, this order will certainly be carried out," the OP adviser wrote.
However, according to Podoliak, there is a benefit in this situation:
"Prigozhin humiliated Putin/state and showed that there is no longer a monopoly on violence."-
