Russian authorities have not yet confirmed whether the mercenary leader of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, was on a private jet that crashed on Wednesday. The warlord is on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list.

“In the Tver region, near the village of Kuzhenkino, a private Embraer Legacy aircraft crashed while flying from Moscow to St. Petersburg. There were 10 people on board, including 3 crew members. According to preliminary information, all on board were killed. EMERCOM of Russia is conducting search operations,” according to Russia’s emergencies ministry.

In June, the leader of the Wagner Group rebellion cut a deal with President Vladimir Putin and said he would exile himself to neighboring Belarus. This deal was made after his fighters came within 120 miles of Moscow in a mutiny launched against the Russian military after the Wagner Group suffered from friendly fire from Russian forces. The Wagner Group was supporting Russia in its invasion of Ukraine.

But the warlord was later reportedly spotted in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia.

According to reports out of Moscow this morning, eight bodies were recovered from the crash site near the village of Kuzhenkino.

Russia’s aviation authority Rosaviatsia said Prigozhin’s name was on the manifest, the state-run news agency RIA Novosti reported on social media.

Prigozhin was a close confidant of Putin until he launched the rebellion. Starting out as a hot dog seller and developing a deeply notorious reputation, he is sometimes called Prigozhin “Putin’s chef,” as he has owned restaurants and catering firms that provided meals for the Kremlin.

He is on the FBI “most wanted list” for attempting to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

The FBI claims Prigozhin oversaw an electoral interference operation by the Russia-based Internet Research Agency, a “troll farm,” which he funded and which spread misinformation via social media.

He is accused by the FBI of a “conspiracy to defraud the US by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions” of the Federal Election Commission, the United States Department of Justice, and the United States Department of State,” according to the FBI, which offers $250,000 for information that might lead to his arrest.

  1. If offing a plane full of innocent people is what it takes to get rid of those “inconvenient” to the one world government/all powerful state/new world order, than offing a plane full of innocent people is what will happen.

  2. “Crashed”.

    He was dead man walking the moment he lost his nerve. If you’re gonna try to kill the king, don’t fail.

    A competent US government would have gotten him over here and picked his brains about Russia.

    But our government is not competent.

    • Will be fun watching the respectable mainstream media claim it was Putin….without evidence. Isn’t that the catchphrase they use these days when we talk about election fraud and vaccine side effects? ‘Without evidence?’

      Of course, don’t be too shocked when something similar ‘happens’ to Trump. When Trump steamrolls his joke ‘Republican’ opposition and the people handling Biden realize he can’t win the next election – we’ll get to see the Deep State’s ‘Final Solution’. And I’m sure people like you will have your rationalizations and talking points all ready to go.

        • Oh, I’m sorry – didn’t realize you were the only one allowed to throw around conspiracy theories about assassinations. After seeing your post, I thought it looked fun.

          • I accept your apology. It appears it’s too much to ask if you to offer cogent thought.

            “People like me” think through issues, not whatever it is you do.
            But you do you, boo.

        • Bloomberg told you to believe that the guy was murdered by Putin, and so, you jump on your keyboard and repeat the claim. Based on what? A hunch? Neck tingles? A seance? Did you speak with the dead? Assertions made by ‘unnamed government officials’ that also don’t have evidence?

          “People like you”, indeed.

          If you want to be a conspiracy theorist, don’t run from it, embrace it. I look forward to hearing more from you about frozen aliens and faked moon landings.

      • ‘were’ not was.

        But you’re wrong on the assertions that our forefathers were traitors. You must be British.

        • Ah, you actually grasp the point, certainly unintentionally. You’re not clever enough to get there deliberately.

          Traitor is most often a matter of perspective. A classic example of why people need be careful flinging around words they don’t understand.

          Not a concept I expect you to understand.

          Again, is there a point to the original comment? Or yours, for that matter?

          • We used to hang those convicted of treason… Airplanes are more convenient and avoid those messy, expensive, public trials.

    • Sure a lot of people throwing that word around these days. It’s like yelling racist. Do you REALLY understand the meaning behind both or just what you’ve heard?

    • He was made to look like a traitor for the show. Contact your nearest new world order leader and CIA for further details. Note: Make sure to bring your big salt shaker.

  3. KGB operation. The guy should have taken his troops all the way to the Kremlin. He would have gone down a hero rather than just a passenger.

  4. This is what “shutting up” someone looks like.

    I think something is going to hit Russia worse than a nuke, and bring them to their knees. It’s something they have been concealing. For quite some time. Now it’s crashed and burned like this.

    I think that’s why we have had federal visitors lately, in good ol’ Alaska. Not such a great spot to hide the trust fund baby after all. Lol. Stupid fkrs.

  5. One can only hope his replacement is an unqualified total failure.

    I just sent Putin an email suggesting he give hiring authority to the Anchorage School Board.

  6. How convenient to probably not supposedly die after collecting your 6 billion American tax payer dollars. What a lovely retirement for him funded by we the people curtesy of the obiden clan.

  7. It is amazing to me how many will assume a few shreds of pieced together conjecture must be true and run with it… absent any objective indication that they’re right. Ron Reagan’s ‘trust but verify’ approach might be in order but there’s no reason to assume the group poking around the debris pile is objective either.

    Here’s how it works:

    If you were a warlord it would be a great idea to fake your death and disappear.

    If you were a warlord it would be a terrible idea to leave a crumb trail to your Belarus door.

  8. So do we get our 6 billion back…? No? Just wandering.

    Remember when we were told we didn’t have 5 billion to build the border wall….hahaha, that was a good one.

  9. When the world stopped watching Putin and his security they’d strike his revenge. Downing was correct in her title “dead man walking” his death was only a matter of timing

  10. Trump needs to be carful of a similar fate. The left will not go down without a fight. We the people need to have a backup plan. If the CIA can I assassinate a sitting president and get away with it that will be a green lite to try to take out the one person who will do what’s right for our country.

  11. Where are all the clowns who were banging the drums that the “oligarch” “dictator” Putin was “done”? CMAN? You were one of them….Maureen, whippet the dog? Forker? C’mon….tell us all about how the “evil” President Putin is living on borrowed time.
    I mean why wouldn’t he be? Trying to stop Ukraine from spreading gay woke unilateralism, anti-Christian, bio-lab funded, DC money laundering ideology into his country. Where does he get off huh?

    • Yeah, I was never one of them that said Putin was done, merely that he’s a brutal dictator. I see nothing here to dissuade me from thinking differently about him. However, I can tell your joy at his continuing success.

      Then again, I don’t seem to be able to post comments on here anymore lately, so perhaps its a waste of my time?

  12. “ The FBI claims Prigozhin oversaw an electoral interference operation by the Russia-based Internet Research Agency, a “troll farm,” which he funded and which spread misinformation via social media.”

    How dare he. Only the US government and media are allowed to spread lies and “misinformation”.

  13. It wouldn’t surprise me if if the dead Wagner Group leader is suddenly resurrected in Niger at some point in the near future.
