Founder of the Wagner Group Yevgeny Prigozhin has proposed to the Douma to sentence journalists who talk about the criminal past of mercenaries to up to 5 years of prison. A terrifying world where innocent people are sentenced, so revelations on criminals can be silenced.
In Opinion “President Vladimir Putin of Russia, it seems, has finally noticed that the war in Ukraine created a dangerous competitor to his power: Yevgeny Prigozhin,” Mikhail Zygar, a Russian journalist, writes in a guest essay.
nytimes.com Opinion | The Man Who May Challenge Putin for Power Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the mercenary group Wagner, may be Putin’s greatest threat to power.
The United States is sanctioning individuals and entities linked to Russia’s para-military Wagner Group and its head, Yevgeniy Prigozhin. This action supports our goal to degrade Moscow’s capacity to wage war against Ukraine. https://state.gov/countering-the-wagner-group-and-degrading-russias-war-efforts-in-ukraine/
Secretary Antony Blinken
United States government official
We took actions today to degrade Russia’s capacity to wage war against Ukraine and to promote accountability for abuse by sanctioning those supporting the Wagner Group’s operations worldwide, producers of Russia’s weapons, and those administering Russia-occupied areas of Ukraine.
Prigozhin responds to the FT reporting on their recent coverage. He accuses them of being behind the hack, working with MI6, claims that he has an informant at the FT feeding him information, the hack did happen but the FT’s documents are fake, and that sanctions aren’t real. PROPAGANDA BE AWARE

Russia has been subjected to more sanctions than any other country in history. But is the West thinking about the sanctions in the wrong way?
Another way to look at it, is that Prigozhin is preventing Russian soldiers from going back home and producing more terrorists.

Addendum from Fred Bassett
Republic of Ireland has welcomed over 70,000 people fleeing Ukraine. Finding accommodation is now becoming a problem but that cannot be. Too often I watch people stop in the Middle of Upper Baggot Street, often foreigners, taking a photo of the Royal City of Dublin hospital which has a most fascinating history going back over 150 years … people ought to know that it was in this hospital that doctors and nurses were trained (in the days of the British Empire) to serve at the Crimean War. Now surely, we can appeal to the powers of the HSE or whoever to get this empty hospital up and running as a centre for Ukrainian people so that they can live in an area where they are accessible to all amenities. Let us remind ourselves that we the Republic of Ireland are not members of NATO so our contribution to this WAR EFFORT in Europe should be to provide homes, as we have done over the past year, to people fleeing Ukraine.
