One of the biggest problems of dictatorships is the question of succession. This is why there is so often a civil war as soon as the dictator is toppled. Of course, it is also a fatal mistake as a dictator to name a successor.

Prigozhin either feels the winds shifting or he's desperate and trying to court Western favour, possibly as a successor to Putin.
