VIDEO: Prigozhin’s Plane Plummets, Crashes to Earth

The Dramatic Death of Yevgeny Prigozhin: A Failed Coup and a Mysterious Plane Crash

In a‌ shocking turn of events, the leader of⁤ the Wagner paramilitary group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, met his demise in a fiery plane ⁣crash.‍ The ⁤moment of ‌the incident was captured on camera, revealing the plane plummeting from the sky after an explosion.

According to The Wall Street Journal, social media channels ‌associated with‍ Wagner claimed that the Russian air defenses shot down the jet, an Embraer ​Legacy ⁢600. Video footage shared by witnesses showed a missile trail and the plane’s descent with one wing missing.

Russia has launched an ‍investigation ⁣to determine the cause of the crash, leaving many questions unanswered.

The Tragic ‍Event Unfolds

News of Prigozhin’s demise emerged shortly after the removal of General Sergei Surovikin, known as “General Armageddon,” from his position as⁣ head‌ of Russia’s air⁢ force. Surovikin had gone missing during⁣ the ​failed coup ⁤and faced accusations of involvement.

According to Reuters, a top Russian official revealed that Colonel-General ​Viktor⁤ Afzalov would temporarily act⁢ as commander-in-chief of the Air ⁢Force, replacing Surovikin.

The Controversial Figure

Yevgeny Prigozhin’s life was ⁤marked by a series of intriguing events. He served nearly a decade ‍in prison for assault, robbery, and fraud. After his release, he started a catering business, which eventually led him to cross paths with ⁤Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Prigozhin’s⁣ company, Concord Catering, secured lucrative contracts from the Russian ‌government,​ allegedly becoming⁢ a channel for money laundering. With the ‍funds,⁤ he established Wagner, a ⁢paramilitary ⁢group consisting of former Russian​ soldiers. Wagner undertook covert operations on behalf of the Russian government, allowing plausible⁢ deniability for their‌ actions.

Wagner ⁤has been ‌accused of heinous crimes, including massacres, rape,⁣ and⁤ resource exploitation in unstable regions⁢ across the ‌globe. The group’s activities span ‌South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and ⁤Europe.

The Wall Street Journal’s investigation uncovered 64 companies linked to Wagner, serving ⁣as fronts for ‍money‍ and‌ asset transfers. The Kremlin’s involvement in ‍these operations remains a subject of‌ scrutiny.
