The relevant info, copy-pasted from News.ru:
The crashed plane in the Tver region turned out to be an Embraer executive jet with tail number RA-02795. There were ten people on board (seven people and three crew members). According to preliminary data, the plane was flying from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
“There were 10 people on board, including three crew members. According to preliminary information, all on board were killed, ”the Ministry of Emergency Situations reports.
According to the Baza Telegram channel, the plane belongs to businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. […]
Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency stated that Yevgeny Prigozhin was on board. Dmitry Utkin, commander of Wagner PMC, was also killed in the crash, according to Telegram sources. There is no official confirmation of this.
Russia state TV claims Prigozhin was on the passenger list but didn’t confirm he was killed.
If these reports are true, I think it’s safe to say that Prigozhin was not part of a 5D scheme to expose traitors in the Russian military—a prevailing narrative among Very Serious Pundits.
If these reports are true, I am fairly confident that there will be no ingenious Wagner offensive against Kiev launched from Belarus—which was also a Very Serious Narrative.
If these reports are true, it seems rather obvious that we are witnessing an oligarchic tug-of-war as tens of thousands of Slavs are killed and maimed for no reason whatsoever.
I will not speak ill of the reportedly dead. Prigozhin was a rich guy who exposed the utter rot in the Russian Ministry of Defense—probably for purely selfish reasons. But many not-rich people have done exactly same. Like Strelkov, who is languishing in a Moscow prison.
