Propagandist Dmitry Kiselev in his program named the total amount of contracts that the state concluded with the Wagner PMC and Yevgeny Prigozhin’s Concord holding – the Kremlin spent at least a trillion rubles.

Kiselyov’s direct speech : “The Wagner Group, as part of the contracts concluded with the state, received a little more than 858 billion rubles. This is under a trillion.
Under other contracts, Prigozhin’s holding, Concord, separately provided services worth another 845 billion rubles. This does not mean that they have earned so much, but it still speaks of the scale of the business and the scale of ambitions.”
Details: This information is spread by the Kremlin media.
Probably, we are talking about the funds received by Prigozhin’s companies for the entire time of their existence. PMC “Wagner” was established 10 years ago – in 2013.
Reference: Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stated over the course of several years that the Kremlin allegedly has nothing to do with Wagner.
Only after the failed putsch did the head of Russia admit that he was paying Wagner.
Recall: Putin said that from May 22 to May 23, Russia paid the Wagner PMC almost a billion dollars (86 billion rubles).
On July 1, a campaign against the Wagnerites was launched in the Russian Federation – on the air of the Russian propaganda “Channel One” they reported on the inefficiency of the PMC “Wagner” in comparison with the fighters of the Russian Federation.
