For the first time since his attempted military coup on the Kremlin, Wagner leader Prigozhin made the headlines. Bad news for him – this time, it was because he met an untimely end in a suspicious plane crash. Here are the details.
Putin’s Mysterious Plane Crash
In a turn of events which came as a surprise to absolutely no one, Prigozhin has met an untimely end.
The only surpising thing seems to be that he didn’t “fall out of a window.”
Instead, a private jet carrying the man was en route from Moscow to St. Petersburg when it plunged from the sky a mere thirty minutes after take-off, sending shockwaves across the world.
The Dark Twist Unfolds
Yevgeny Prigozhin, the enigmatic head of Wagner, was a steadfast Putin ally for years before his wild insurrection earlier this year stunned the world (and left Putin reeling.)
A Terrifying Twitter Watch
Chilling social media footage captured the aircraft’s terrifying, wingless descent.
An Unsettling Revelation
Could this truly be the end of Prigozhin and his shadowy empire?
Experts now believe that this dramatic crash might have been planned by the Putin regime to silence not only Prigozhin but also key figures like Dmitry Utkin, the military mastermind behind Wagner.
Coup Chaos in June
Prigozhin’s attempted military coup during the summer of this year looked like the beginning of the end for Putin, before Prigozhin himself suddenly and unexpectedly called the whole thing off.
A Swift Response From the Kremlin
Following Prigozhin’s stunning stand-down orders, the Kremlin quickly took back control of the situation, banishing Prigozhin and his men to Belarus.
Revenge for the Attempted Military Coup?
The going theory is that Vladimir Putin, known for his shady tactics and the many suspicious deaths which plague his government (and his political rivals), was likely seeking retribution for Prigozhin’s attempted uprising earlier in the year.
The attempted coup marked the most serious and dramatic threat to Putin’s hold on power to date.
Shocking Allegations Emerge
Startling claims made by U.S. officials to the Wall Street Journal hinted at an assassination plot involving a bomb on the ill-fated plane, pointing fingers at a chilling plot from the Kremlin.
The Dire Warning
Prigozhin’s death sends a chilling message to any daring to challenge Putin’s supremacy.
A World in Chaos
Yet, despite the apparent decapitation of Wagner, a formidable force of armed Wagner fighters still lurks in the shadows across Russia, Africa, and Syria.
The Comfort Blanket of Belarus
Over 6,000 warriors are said to have found refuge in Belarus under the watchful eye of Alexander Lukashenko.
Viral Vengeance on the Cards
Social media started to fill with messages from Wagner mercenaries, hinting at a possible revenge plan that could contribute to the end of Putin’s long and powerful regime.
