Every good spy story needs a shadowy operative who does the dirty work for the boss, and thanks to the indictment issued Friday by special counsel Robert Mueller, we now have a nominee for that role in the Russia investigation. He's a billionaire oligarch named Yevgeniy Prigozhin, and based on Russian and other accounts, he sounds like a real-life version of a James Bond villain.Prigozhin's fingerprints appear to be on three of the most sensitive operations launched by Russian President Vladimir Putin: meddling in the 2016 U.S. election; supporting separatist fighters in Eastern Ukraine; and providing military muscle for the Syrian regime. Russia's hidden combatants are often described as "Little Green Men," and Prigozhin may be the Jolly Green Giant who helps this machine function.Prigozhin has been sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury since 2016 because of his activities in Ukraine.Prigozhin, the Zelig of Russian covert action, also appears to have had a special role in the Wagner Group's mercenary operations in Syria.No public response from Prigozhin could be found.
