Yevgeny Prigozhin was playing a very dangerous game. The Wagner head and one time Putin caterer has been dancing on thin ice for some time and I was wondering how long Putin would put up with him. The writing was on the wall and I could not see his boss standing for his insubordination for long.

He is now ensconced in Belarus in some weird deal but I would think that his time on this planet is quite limited at this point. 

It will only be a matter of time before some Rosa Klebb nails him with her poisoned shoe knife, like in To Russia with love.

They may use polonium - 210, if recent history is any guide. That is how they nailed Litvinenko while the Skripals were hit with a Novichok nerve agent. Arno and Navalny were also hit with the nerve agent.

I honestly see no endgame where Prigozhin gets out of this thing alive. He is a murderous creep and I have little sympathy for him but I applauded his move towards Moscow as did many of his countrymen apparently. But neither he nor his boss had sufficient traction with the military so he called it off.

In martial arts there is a saying that one should not draw his sword until ready to make a killing stroke. Yevgeny should not have withdrawn from his mutinous strike so prematurely, things were just getting good. And now the man and his murderous band of thugs is as good as dead.

Stay away from high windows, Yevgeny!
