Prigozhin Among Passengers Dead After Plane Crash In Russia

Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner mercenary group who led an attack on Moscow, was among 10 people killed after a plane crashed in Russia.

A Telegram channel closely linked with the Wagner Group claimed that Prigozhin was among the dead.

The crash came exactly two months to the day since Prigozhin’s June 23 mutiny attempt on Russian President Vladimir Putin and Moscow. CIA Director William Burns said last month that the rebellion raised questions “about Putin’s judgment, about his relative detachment from events and about his indecisiveness.”

The Russian Ministry of Emergency Services confirmed that a private aircraft crashed while flying from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

“According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, an investigation has been launched into the Embraer crash,” an outlet reported. “Among the passengers is the name and surname of Evgeny Prigozhin.”

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information.
