Yevgeny Prigozhin’s Mania for Grandeur

By Epo

This time, our cartoonist tackles the mania for grandeur of Putin’s “cook” who, according to rumours, was ready to divulge Russian military secrets to the Ukrainians in exchange for victory in Bakhmout. Anyone who praises the bravery and know-how of the Ukrainian army would never have had a response from Ukraine, and in particular from the director of military intelligence Kyrylo Budanov.
