The FBI has put Wagner PMC founder Yevgeny Prigozhin on the wanted list with a $250 reward

Prigozhin was given a $250 reward.

According to official data published on the FBI website, Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of the Wagner private military company, has been put on the international wanted list. There is a $250 reward for any information leading to his arrest. This could lead to extremely unfavorable consequences for Prigozhin, despite the fact that the latter has been a very important figure in recent times.

The reason for the announced international search for Yevgeny Prigozhin was the latter's recent statement about interference in the American elections, which is also reported on the FBI website.

“Evgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin is wanted by the FBI for his alleged involvement in a conspiracy against the United States, violating and obstructing the legitimate functions of the Federal Election Commission, the US Department of Justice and the US State Department. This happened in Washington DC from the beginning of 2014 to February 16, 2018. Prigogine was the main sponsor of the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency (IRA). He allegedly directed and approved their political and election interference operations in the United States, which included buying space on a US computer server, creating hundreds of fictitious online personas, and using stolen identities of individuals from the United States. These actions were allegedly taken to reach a significant number of Americans for the purpose of interfering in the political system of the United States, including the 2016 presidential election."- said in the message.

Prigogine has not yet commented on his being put on the wanted list, however, the situation in relation to him is extremely serious.
