The armies of "Putin's chef" Yevgeny Prigozhin and Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov were created to suppress potential uprisings in Russia. However, the Kremlin also used them in its war against Ukraine.

That’s according to Andrii Cherniak, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, Ukrinform reports, citing the agency’s website.

"Prigozhin and Kadyrov are people who, in order to preserve Putin's power, have the right to create their own armies. These armies were created primarily to suppress any potential uprisings within Russia," Cherniak said.

According to him, the demonstration of "well-trained and brave" Kadyrovites is primarily aimed at the Russian public. Today, in the full-scale war against Ukraine, Kadyrovites are used at the front as blocking units, preventing newly mobilized or other soldiers from retreating. That is, the main task of Kadyrov's army is to intimidate the Russians.
