Recently, Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, has recently stirred up controversy with his take on the Wagner rebellion in Russia. In a tweet, Hoskinson claimed that the rebellion was a premeditated plan, involving key players such as Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner Group, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Here’s my hot take on Prigozhin. Putin and Prigozhin planned this months before with Lukashenko to tease out members of the Russian military who aren’t loyal, reposition Wagner forces to Belarus for a strike on Kiev, and encourage the Ukrainians to overcommit in the east thinking…

Hoskinson’s tweet hinted at a carefully orchestrated scheme, aimed at identifying disloyal members within the Russian military, repositioning Wagner forces in Belarus, and ultimately staging a strike on Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv.
He state that,
“Here’s my hot take on Prigozhin. Putin and Prigozhin planned this months before with Lukashenko to tease out members of the Russian military who aren’t loyal, reposition Wagner forces to Belarus for a strike on Kiev, and encourage the Ukrainians to overcommit in the east thinking…”
While some may view Hoskinson’s claims as speculative, others see them as a bold and insightful analysis of the situation. Only time will tell which interpretation is more accurate, but one thing is for sure – the world is watching and waiting to see what happens next.
Speculation has been stirred up by recent statements from Hoskinson, who suggested that the Ukrainian government may have fallen victim to a cunning plan, overcommitting their forces in the east and potentially revealing vulnerabilities that could be exploited.
The Wagner Rebellion
It is worth recalling that the Wagner Group rebelled against the Russian military last June, seizing control of Rostov-on-Don and advancing towards Moscow, but eventually withdrawing forces after negotiations with Belarusian President Lukashenko.
While no concrete evidence has emerged to substantiate the allegations, analysts are pondering the implications of Hoskinson’s claims. The ongoing conflict in Ukraine is a complex web of potential motivations and maneuvers that continue to unfold.
The allegations surrounding Yevgeny Prigozhin, a trusted confidant of President Putin, have added yet another layer of complexity to an already convoluted situation. Prigozhin, who leads the Wagner Group, a private military contractor, has been linked to a number of controversial activities, further fueling speculation about his involvement.
Meanwhile, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, has been making headlines outside of the cryptocurrency world. His extracurricular activities have caught the attention of the ADA community, with reports emerging that he recently went on an ocean expedition with a team of scientists in search of fragments from an unidentified object that crashed in the Pacific seven years ago. Additionally, Hoskinson announced the grand opening of his family-owned clinic last month.
