He took out the entire command staff of Wagner.

Quote:
The Daily Beast @thedailybeast

A Russian journalist who investigates Wagner cited sources close to the group as saying "it will be a miracle if [Prigozhin] is on another plane," adding that "the entire command staff " of the mercenary group was with Prigozhin at the time of the crash.

I guess there were too many to fall out of windows. Hopefully, this throws a wrench into whatever he was planning in Belarus.

So many scenarios

I could see someone other than Putin FSB doing this to get the Wagner Mercs to start war Inside Russia
This would help Ukraine

I'll admit surprise. I thought the fear of Wagner's troops retaliating would deter Putin. There have been 6 assassination attempts on Putin. I think there will be another.
Quote:
Retribution will be “inevitable,” a Russian lawmaker said Thursday in an apparent reference to mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin.

Although he did not mention Prigozhin by name, Sergei Mironov, who leads the state-backed A Just Russia party, said in a Telegram post that “the haters of our Motherland have a big holiday.”

But had added that, "Scum, wherever you sit now, retribution will be inevitable."


I wonder why the media isn't airing the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin. Am I missing something?

Prigozhin plane crash live updates: Putin comments on Wagner chief’s suspected death

In his first public acknowledgment of the plane crash, President Vladimir Putin said Yevgeny Prigozhin was a "talented businessman" who "made serious mistakes in his life."

Perhaps, he thought he could pull the Indiana Jones life raft maneuver if things got dodgy.

Lukashenko says he recently heard about plans to assassinate Prigozhin while on a trip to UAE, so he informed the Russian ambassador to the UAE, who then told Putin about those plans. Putin then told Prigozhin that some people are planning to assassinate him, thus Prigozhin was aware of the plans.



So there you go folks, Putin is just an innocent bystander in all of this.

Lukashenko and MyPillowGuy look a little alike

Russia is just a whole different world

Did they play Swan lake after the plane was shot down

Quote:
During the last attempted coup in Russia, ballet dancers alerted citizens of the turmoil. As the Wagner mercenary boss turns on the Russian military, Tchaikovsky's swans may dance again.

UKRAINE BOMBS RUSSIAN SHIPYARD

Quote:
“The large Russian landing ship Minsk and the submarine Rostov-on-Don, which were hit during the night attack in Sevastopol, most likely cannot be restored,” Andriy Yusov, a representative of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, said on Ukrainian TV. Russian Telegram channels confirmed the names and types of vessels.

So here we are, two years later. Russia has managed to continue to mount offensives and Ukraine continues to hold strong with no end in sight.
