"You can expect anything": Simonyan changed her mind and said that now no one knows who Prigozhin is. Video
Russian propagandists continue to "get rid of" the owner of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, after his failed military coup attempt in Russia. They used to be favourably disposed towards the curator of mercenary killers, but now they claim that they "do not understand" who he is.
In particular, the Kremlin's top propagandist, Margarita Simonyan, spoke about this on her show. According to her, it is still unclear what to expect next (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).
"Now no one understands who Prigozhin is. I've known Prigozhin for many years - I don't understand. Our president, who has known him for decades, does not understand. Nobody understands. After that, you can expect anything," Simonyan said.
At the same time, we recall that earlier Simonyan justified Prigozhin's mutiny. In her opinion, the PMC leader "just went crazy" because he had returned from the war zone with a "changed psychotype". The propagandist presented this nonsense with a serious look in a video, a fragment of which appeared online.
In her opinion, Prigozhin had more than enough reasons to "freak out".
"The reasons were listed. But the ammunition - the whole country knew about it. I would go out - right to the hairdresser's, to a cafe, to the dentist, somewhere else - and people would come up to me on the street: "Explain why Prigozhin is not given ammunition". Then, you can't say that the whole country, especially after the mobilisation, was in love with the leadership of the Ministry of Defence, can you? Let's call a spade a spade," Simonyan said.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported:
- "After the Wagner PMC riot, led by their leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, Russia launched a campaign to discredit the Wagnerites. Recently, at the cemetery in Vladivostok, unknown persons removed Wagner flags from the graves of the liquidated occupiers;
- The Russian Ministry of Defence has cancelled the contract with the Concord catering company owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, the curator of the Wagner PMC. In addition, the Russian regulator Roskomnadzor blocked access to websites related to Wagner, including the so-called troll factory, and a sign was removed from the Wagner Centre W building in St Petersburg.
