Plane Crash in Russia Kills 10—Wagner Chief Prigozhin Was on Passenger List

From an AP story headlined “Officials say a jet crash in Russia kills 10, Wagner chief Prigozhin was on passenger list”:

A private jet crashed in Russia on Wednesday, killing all 10 people aboard, emergency officials said. Mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin was on the passenger list, but it wasn’t immediately clear if he was on board.

Prigozhin’s fate has been the subject of intense speculation ever since he mounted a short-lived mutiny against Russia’s military leadership in late June. The Kremlin said the founder of the Wagner private military company, which fought alongside Russia’s regular army in Ukraine, would be exiled to Belarus.
