Putin Breaks His Silence On Prigozhin: “A Talent Who Made Mistakes”

Yevgeny Prigozhin, Wagner’s boss who reportedly died along with his deputy after the plane they were traveling with eight other people crashed on, “was a talented person who made mistakes.” 24 hours after the news broke the world, Russian President Vladimir Putin intervenes, according to many – especially in Ukraine – the number one suspect as the instigator of what is considered an attack in all respects.

According to Putin, who offers his condolences, “Wagner’s contribution to the fight against neo-Nazism will not be forgotten”, he said, reiterating the usual rhetoric that accompanied the war in Ukraine. In the message, according to Tass, the Russian president defines Prigozhin, whom he met in the early 1990s, as a man “with a difficult destiny”, but capable of achieving “the desired results”.

Putin announced an “investigation” that will be “thorough”. However, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal, which reports US administration intelligence, Prigozhin was allegedly assassinated in a conspiracy, but it does not appear that the plane he was traveling in was hit by a surface-to-air missile. . The newspaper says the main hypothesis is that a bomb on the plane or some other form of sabotage.
