Kyrylo Budanov stayed with President Volodymyr Zelensky in the United States. During his stay in Washington, he gave an exclusive interview to thedrive.com. In it, he talked about the progress of the Ukrainian counteroffensive and the goals to be achieved on the front. However, at some point, the conversation turned to less serious topics.
– When we first met, you were a star general – a brigadier general – but few people outside of Ukraine knew who you were. Now you are famous all over the world. What do you think about memes and jokes about you? – A journalist asks a military man.
– I have no influence over them. What can I do with this? – Budanov laughs. He says some of them surprised him. – Especially after I cut my hair, a memory appeared with Prigozhin’s head and mine. That’s what happened right away His rising effort In Russia.
Internet users produced a dialogue between Budanov and Prigozhin written in six photographs.
– I will give you a signal when to start (the uprising against Putin – editor’s note) – Budanov tells Prigozhin.
– What signal? – asks the Russian.
“You will understand,” Budanov says.
– How? – asks Prigozhin.
The next photo shows Budanov bald, so he has the same hairstyle as Prigozhin. The symbol is Budano’s bald head.
Butanov, which means bat hunting
Budanov was a young, respectable military man who, until he became head of military intelligence, was in the shadow of his old colleagues. Russians have been hunting for his life for years, and he mocks Putin’s colossus with feet of clay by making an unusual birthday cake himself. Kyrillo Budanov has been loyal to President Volodymyr Zelensky for many years. The interior of his office says a lot about his personality.

There is a painting on the wall, an owl holding a bat on its sheet. It wasn’t a random shot. The bat is a symbol of Russian intelligence, and owls belong to a group of animals that hunt bats.
