Prigozhin seeks POWER and the manifestation of wealth comparable to putin. Scholz amidst ostriches with their heads in the sand. No leopards available from Germany. Why?

WAGNER GROUP, THE MERCHANTS OF DEATH Created almost 10 years ago, Putin’s militia of dirty work is now playing a leading role in the war in Ukraine. An opportunity for its leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin, to make a profit from his sinister business of death.
