What we know about the plane crash that listed Russian Mercenary boss among the passengers

Yevgeniy Prigozhin

An Embraer private jet associated with Yevgeniy Prigozhin , the Wagner mercenary boss, crashed Wednesday afternoon near Russia’s Tver region.

The chief of Russia’s Wagner mercenary group led a short but dramatic rebellion against the Kremlin this year.

While he was listed on the passenger manifest it has not been confirmed whether Prigozhin was actually on the plane.

Prigozhin has also been misreported dead in the past including rumors of his death in a plane crash in 2019 and has been known to use doubles that travel under his name in the past.

    It’s like if the Haliburton company(mercenaries) had dissed the U.S when they were used to clear Iraq ahead of the U.S. army moving in, they would have faced the same fate.

    I believe the Russia Ukraine was was started by NATO headed by the USA.The USA wanted to start the 3rd world war because of the 1962 Caban Missile Crisis.They did not want Russian missiles close to American soil.But,they want a NATO country on the Russian border.It is strange that MEME is questioning news from western media,but he accepts all the lies,propaganda,stupidity and fake news from UWP.

      Lie Clown, that’s to show you, you don’t listen or read the news..
      About 2 years ago, the American satellite saw the Russians gathering around the boarders of Ukraine.
      The American warned Ukraine for weeks. The Russians denied the fact…. said only military exercises….
      and bam the Russians invasion started..

    I don’t think Prighozin is an angel but neither is he a fool. I wouldn’t be surprised if he never took the flight and is alive somewhere, planning his next move.

        Meme, there’s no proof yet that he was on the flight, only that his name was on the list!

      I think that Prighozin is alive somewhere and this trip was planned with a double and there was danger on the plane that he knows about. Putin said that Russia has nothing to do with it. I think the plane was all set for this. 2019 he pressumed dead. He is a double agent. I want to think that he is more brilliant than Putin. It should be a concern to all of us. He is a dangerous human being. Now they are asking 25,000 crew of his to side with Ukraine. I honestly don’t think he was in the plane. He is too smart for that. Putin was concerned about him. Time will tell.

    He has already been identified by markings on his body, but they are going to do a DNA test to confirm…

    Reasons why yesterday i said a big “IF” he is dead. Additionally the fact that western media is pointing fingers at president Putin in this possible death, i am inclined to believe the direct opposite, which is that President Putin had absolutely nothing to do with this.
    I always question news emanating from western media, and have never swallowed it lock, stock and barrel.
