In an interview in April, Prigozhin said that Russia is like a plane that is going to explode
Likening Russia to an airplane threatening to disintegrate in flight: a metaphor used by Yevgeny Prigozhin in an interview a few months ago, and now re-introduced by a Telegram channel close to Wagner, is unleashing backlash and conspiracy theories among his supporters. First of all, what has been circulating in recent days is that Prigozhin is not really dead and that he is preparing to reappear at the right moment. “I’m not going to lie,” Wagner’s chief said in an interview published in April. 29 and has now been published in part by Gray Zone. “Today we have reached a boiling point,” Prigozhin adds, noting that he is willing to “kill” rather than lie, and recalling allegations of incompetence that were repeatedly expressed against military leaders in the months leading up to the attempted insurrection of his private military company.

GB: The war over oil and gas platforms in the Black Sea
Recently there is a war between Russia and Ukraine in the Black Sea, in the northwest region between Crimea and Odessa, involving offshore platforms for pumping gas and oil: the British Ministry of Defense wrote in its press release prepared by intelligence about the war in Ukraine. The British Ministry of Defense notes that these factories are operated by Chernomorneftegaz, which the Russians confiscated from the Ukrainians after the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Federation in 2014.
Since the February 2022 invasion, Kiev has targeted several offshore oil platforms in the Black Sea, and the warring parties have occupied many of them with troops. Just last week, British intelligence wrote, a Russian fighter jet shot down a small Ukrainian military ship near one of the platforms. We read that the platforms play a double strategic economic and military role, such as the small Snake Island, because they can be used as military bases, helicopter landing points, and long-range missile launch bases.

A bomb in the galley, which is the section of the cab located exactly between the two engines and before the tail, planted under the cover of the replacement of the “cooling unit” (in addition to the brakes of the undercarriage) the day before the tragic flight in which the chief of the Wagner mercenaries carrying Prigozhin was to die. This is the hypothesis that emerges from the reconstruction of the Russian Telegram channel, Chika Ogbo, on the basis of tips and testimonies consistent with data collected by Antonio Bordoni (Air-accidents.com), a leading expert on aircraft accidents. The main character of the yellow executive plane RA02795 is on board PrigozhinAnd six other passengers and three crew members, Sergey Kitras, engineer of Mnt Aero, owner of the Wagner-linked plane, attended the repairs in the last few hours (as stated in a letter to the family from flight attendant Kristina Raspopova).
Prigozhin had ordered the savings, so the undercarriage brakes and turbo intercooler were fitted in the pouring rain on Sunday.
Kittrash, taken from the Special Units, is now under interrogation by Investigation Chief Evan Sibul. Two more engineers, Airline No. 1 Artur Mechenkov and Alexei Anchukov, took part in the maintenance. But the investigations focus on Ketrash. Bordoni explains, “The Embraer 135/Legacy600 manual actually shows the kitchen area component, the kitchen, with part number 89115-036, the refrigerator unit. He adds that it is remarkable that the victims of the disaster are ten, as two months ago, 10 people were killed by the Ilyushin-22M military intelligence plane that was shot down by Prigozhin’s rebels on their way to the Kremlin. But other elements add yellow to yellow. The first is that the head of aircraft safety and deputy director of ANM, Sergei Shtyrkov, was going to work for the state-owned company, ATM, in a more important role, the day before Prigozhin’s last flight. But Shtyrkov is said to have also worked with Wagner’s boss in recent days. The destroyer Embraer was one of three aircraft in service with the group. Under the sanctions, he could only travel to Russia. Moreover, it was for sale for $5 million, and shortly before it took off from Sheremetyevo Airport, two potential buyers saw it on the plane. The newspaper “Komsomolets” in Moscow reported that the two said they worked for Rosgate, and one of them gave a Russian passport, then it turned out that Rossgate did not know who they were. yellow in yellow.
The two black boxes were recovered and pieces of the plane (a wing found miles away, another piece of evidence of CIA-backed sabotage) will be used to reconstruct the plane in 3D, like the Ustica. However, it will take months for the DNA results of the bodies to come in, the only sure proof of their identity. The times that allow the authorities to postpone or cancel Prigozhin’s funeral (that would be a “political” danger for Putin, given his popularity among nationalists, and there are already cemeteries for Wagner soldiers being dismantled in Russia), on the other hand, favor skepticism. about his death. “We are at the boiling point,” Prigozhin said in a video clip he posted yesterday on his Telegram channel. I’m not lying, so they better kill me. I say frankly that Russia is on the brink of disaster. If the screws are not fixed immediately, the plane will collapse in the air.”
