According to Prigozhin, Ukraine is planning a counteroffensive, and Russian forces should pay more attention to unfolding events in Ukraine rather than the televised parade.
Prigozhin claimed that Ukrainian forces were "tearing up the flanks" and regrouping, and a counteroffensive was about to begin.
He urged Russians to focus on the unfolding events in Ukraine and not just on the Victory Day parade.
Prigozhin went on to say that Victory Day belonged to a previous generation, and Russians have not earned that victory.
He criticized the Russian military leadership in Moscow for focusing on the parade instead of the events in Ukraine.
The Victory Day parade is an annual event that marks the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.
The parade is typically a show of military might and patriotism, with troops and military equipment on display.
