Bars of gold, a collection of wigs and a giant sledgehammer: The Kremlin’s apparent effort to discredit Wagner mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin reached new heights Wednesday as the Russian public was offered a glimpse inside his estate.
Footage that appears to show the wild array of contents in his residence was publicized by pro-Kremlin media outlets, the latest sign of an emerging propaganda war against the man behind last month’s insurrection that shook President Vladimir Putin's regime.
Amid uncertainty about Prigozhin’s whereabouts, Russian state TV and the Izvestia newspaper, known for its pro-Kremlin views, published photos and video that purportedly show a police raid of the mercenary leader’s home and offices in St. Petersburg.
