"According to preliminary data, a plane with the registration number RA-02795 crashed in the Tver region. It belongs to Yevgeny Prigozhin," writes Baza.

Eyewitnesses, however, claim that the plane was supposedly shot down. According to them, two explosions were heard, and then the plane started to fall.

The propagandist media TASS, citing the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, claims that 10 people died in a plane crash.

According to journalists' information, the business jet was traveling from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

Prigozhin's coup

In late June, Prigozhin initiated a military mutiny. The alleged reason for this was the shelling of the rear camps of the Wagner Group by the Russian regular army.

The mercenaries captured Rostov-on-Don and Voronezh with little resistance. Afterward, they headed towards Moscow. At this stage, Progozhin held negotiations with the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, and ended his rebellion.

Later, it became known that Prigozhin was being sent to Belarus.

Recently, the representative of Ukraine's Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense, Andrii Yusov, said that new mutinies could be prepared in Russia.
