Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner movement, is allegedly still alive. According to a Russian political analyst, his body double perished in the plane crash last week.
Prigozhin is ‘living, well, and free’ in an undisclosed nation, according to Dr Valery Solovey, even as Russia holds his funeral, which Vladimir Putin is declining to attend.
The political analyst, a former professor at Moscow’s famed Institute of International Relations [MGIMO], a school for spies and diplomats, claims that Prigozhin is currently preparing for his retaliation.
Dr Solovey charges the Russian government with lying about Prigozhin’s DNA being discovered at the crash site in the Tver region despite being aware that the warlord’s body double, which the warlord was known to utilize, boarded the jet in the Wagner leader’s place after the assassination attempt was unsuccessful.
He disputed statements by US intelligence that the plane was brought down by an explosion inside, stating that a Russian air defence system shot Yevgeny Prigozhin’s plane down.
“On board, there was no explosion. Outside forces took it out.
This strike’s covert operation “was developed in [Russia’s] Security Council and personally approved by the Russian president [Vladimir Putin],” according to the report.
Solovey says the warlord is “alive, well, and free.”
‘Prigozhin personally wasn’t travelling with us. Instead of him, his duplicate was in the air. Vladimir Putin is, of course, fully aware of it.
“What can I say if you believe official statements of the Russian authorities?”
Dr Solovey promised to expose Prigozhin’s alleged exile location early next month. However, he claimed it was in Africa where the Wagner private army had various business interests.
The funeral of Prigozhin, whose arrival is imminent and which Putin is refusing to attend, was planned for the end of the year.
The presence of the President is not provided, according to Putin’s spokeswoman.
Regarding funerals, we don’t have any specific information. However, family and friends will ultimately decide this.
Dr. Solovey stated that exiled Prigozhin was “getting ready for retaliation.”
“How did he survive while his loved ones perished? This was the decision that Prigozhin had to make.
I’m not discussing the moral implications of this decision. God forbid any of us have to make this decision.
He plans to exact retribution for having to make such a decision. He wants to exact revenge on those who wanted to do him harm and killed those close to him.
Dmitry Utkin, a 53-year-old military commander for Wagner, and Kristina Raspopova, a 39-year-old flight attendant who had informed her relatives of the aircraft’s delay and that the jet had undergone repairs prior to its tragic final flight, were both killed.
According to Solovey, Prigozhin has access to £1.6 billion in bitcoin, which he will use to retaliate.
“That will more than suffice for retaliation.” He is very ambitious and has a lot of energy and courage.
