Prigogine is doomed. Putin - too.

Many consider Prigozhin as independent player player.
I think that the top Russian elites (oligarchs, Chekists, military, police) have already decided to remove Putin, but each of them hopes that some other will remove the dictator.
For all of them,Prigogine is an instrument.
Progozhin serves as a test of Putin's will, of Putin's ability to hold on to power. Prigogine is like a current running into a frog's muscle - to see its reaction.
Prigogine is waste material. He is a means of probing Putin's power-ability.
Prigogine is doomed.
Putin - too.
