Yevgeny Prigojin, the Kremlin-linked leader of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, sent a bloody sledgehammer to the European Parliament, the legislative body of the European Union.
The sledgehammer was sent while the EP was preparing to condemn Wagner after recognizing Russia as a "state that supports terrorism".
It is seen that the sledgehammer, which was sent in a violin case, has "PMC Wagner" written on it and has fake blood on its handle.
Prigojin's Concord company reported that the leader held a meeting with the commanders of the mercenary group and discussed how to respond.
According to the Moscow Times, the sledgehammer was used to kill a mercenary who deserted Wagner.
The EP will vote on "Wagner's condemnation for his heinous crimes" today.
