In the late 1970s, Prigozhin graduated from the Leningrad boarding school of a sports profile No. 62 (now the College of the Olympic Reserve No. 1), where he studied with three-time champions of the 1980 Olympics in Moscow - swimmer Vladimir Salnikov and gymnast Alexander Dityatin.

For several years, Violetta Prigozhina was listed as a co-owner of the catering company Concord Management and Consulting, which belongs to the Concord group of companies founded by her son. For this, the European Union included it in the sanctions list after the start of the military operation in Ukraine. However, in March 2023, the EU court annulled this decision, indicating that Violetta Prigozhina has not owned Concorde since 2017, despite the fact that she has shares in the company at her disposal.

Yevgeny Prigozhin's wife Lyubov is 52 years old, she is a pharmaceutical chemist by education. According to the We Can Explain telegram channel, the businessman’s wife owns an estate in the village of Kabardinka near Gelendzhik, and also manages Soinvest LLC, which owns a plot of 39 thousand square meters near the Black Sea through the Turstatus company.

PMC "Wagner"

Information about PMC "Wagner" began to appear in the public plane in 2015. It was reported that a training ground near the village of Molkino in the Krasnodar Territory is used to train fighters of a non-state military structure. It was reported that the PMC is recruiting men with military and combat experience to perform tasks in Syria, the Central African Republic, and later in the DPR and LPR. All these years, Yevgeny Prigozhin disowned the Wagner Central Exhibition Complex and declared that he had nothing to do with it. Prigozhin's structures even sued journalists who claimed otherwise. In 2022, after the start of the SVO, Prigozhin admitted that he had also created the head of the PMC all these years. In October 2022, the PMC Wagner Center opened in St. Petersburg, which was supposed to be something between technoparks for the development of defense technologies and co-working for patriotic media and bloggers.
