Defense Minister, Guido Crosetto, said he did not feel threatened and that he was sure there were no bounties on him. “I want to reiterate this so as not to fuel a further, useless reason for conflict: I do not feel threatened and I am sure that there are no bounties or anything else on me. If there had been any real risks or threats of this severity, I would certainly have been informed and it never happened,” he wrote in a message on Twitter.

Crosetto said he was "absolutely calm". “I think that what has come out on various sites is one of the many alarms that arrive every day, from disparate sources, that our authorities in charge of this verify and often archive,” wrote Crosetto on Twitter. “I am sure that no one will ever go beyond the blatant insults,” added the minister.

Yesterday evening the minister, also on Twitter, provided a first comment on the matter. “Every day information circulates, more or less plausible, more or less pleasant, that it is up to those in charge, those who deal with the security of the Republic, to verify, investigate and, if necessary, counteract. They are enough", Crosetto wrote, adding that speaking "publicly" of such information "does not help and does not help anyone". In recent days the leader of the Wagner group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, had responded polemically and aggressively to the minister's statements regarding the involvement of the Russian paramilitary company in the smugglers' activities and the departures of irregular migrants from Africa.
