Russia Shot Down Business Jet

Russia Shot Down Business Jet, Wagner Boss Among Fatalities

In a shocking turn of events, a plane crash in Russia’s Tver region, north of Moscow, claimed the lives of all ten passengers onboard. Yevgeny Prigozhin, the high-profile leader of the Wagner group, was confirmed to be among the casualties, according to the passenger manifest.

This tragic incident has garnered significant attention due to Prigozhin’s association with Wagner. Prior to the crash, the Telegram channel ‘Grey Zone,’ known for its links to Wagner, put forth a claim suggesting that air defenses in the Tver region had shot down the aircraft. This theory, if proven true, could have far-reaching implications. However, as of now, the exact circumstances of the crash remain under investigation.

Prigozhin’s controversial endeavors made headlines earlier this year when he attempted, albeit unsuccessfully, to stage a mutiny against the Russian armed forces in June. This adds another layer of complexity to the incident, and many will be closely watching for further developments. (BBC, Telegram)
