Kyrylo Budanov suggests that any potential attempts to assassinate Yevhen Prigozhin, the owner of the private military company “Wagner,” will not happen quickly.

The task of eliminating Prigozhin has reportedly been assigned to Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) following an attempted armed rebellion.

Budanov, the head of Ukraine’s Main Directorate of Intelligence (HUR), shared this information in an interview with journalist Howard Altman.

Ukrainian military intelligence has been aware of the plan for a while and acknowledges that while the rebellion had a limited impact on the war in Ukraine, it did cause some damage to the Russian military and space forces.

Budanov emphasizes that the appearance of Wagner PMC as an independent entity conducting operations in Ukraine is not expected.

He also highlights that Wagner mercenaries have demonstrated a greater fighting capability compared to the regular Russian army.

As for the FSB’s ability to carry out the assassination order, Budanov raises questions regarding their execution and courage.

The Ukrainian intelligence chief reveals that Prigozhin’s rebellion led to the destruction of eight Russian military aircraft, including a valuable airborne command post-Il-22M.
