Prigozhin trolls Putin and aims for the presidency – ISW

A parody of Putin’s cinematic interview style could be used as part of a larger trolling campaign to attack the Kremlin.

Wagner PMC leader Yevgeny Prigozhin is using his media influence in Russia to present himself as a contender in the 2024 presidential election. This is stated in the analytics of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) for Tuesday, March 28.

For example, Prigozhin’s own news agency recently published an interview with him that visually mimics various interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Before this, videos with Prigozhin looked different – he chose dynamic frames or reminiscent of a battlefield.

Prigozhin also used the interview to repeat his earlier arguments about the need to instill a hardline ideology among Russian fighters and to indicate that the Russian Defense Ministry was deliberately depriving the Wagner group of artillery ammunition.

Analysts believe parodying Putin’s cinematic interview style could be used as part of a larger trolling campaign to attack the Kremlin, or draw tacit parallels between Prigozhin and Putin.

In addition, on March 11, Prigozhin made a sarcastic statement that he would run for president in 2024. At the same time, Prigozhin repeatedly attacked Putin’s presidential administration, for example, saying that some officials were traitors . He also questioned Kremlin narratives that the Russian Federation is at war with NATO, and that there are Nazis in Ukraine.

Analysts believe that Prigozhin’s recent behavior – regardless of his intentions – is spreading a narrative in Russian society that he has big political ambitions in Russia.

It was previously reported that PMC Wagner wanted to recruit 30,000 militants by May.
