Prigozhin and the Press

From CJR’s The Media Today with Jon Allsop:

On Sunday—as the world waited to hear from Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner mercenary group that, a day prior, had embarked on then aborted a mutinous march on Moscow—his press service indicated that the world would have to wait some more. Prigozhin “says hi to everyone and will answer questions when he has good reception” on his cellphone. Yesterday, Prigozhin finally broke his silence in an eleven-minute voice message posted to Telegram, saying that he had received thousands of press questions and wanted to set the record straight.
