Witnesses to the crash heard a loud bang before they saw the jet ‘fall from the sky’ – locals on social media are sharing these images of the aftermath, although it is unconfirmed at this stage if this is the plane  

Daily Mail: Wagner group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin feared dead in plane crash: Jet believed to be carrying warlord ‘falls from the sky’ north of Moscow two months after failed coup 

Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin is feared dead after a plane – with his name on the passenger list – crashed in Russia tonight, two months after his failed coup attempt against Putin. 

Video footage purportedly shows the aircraft falling out of the sky in the Bologovsky district in the Tver region. 

A burning wreckage, which appears to be of a plane, was later seen in a field, with unconfirmed images showing it completely ablaze. 

It was initially unknown if Wagner chief Prigozhin – known as Putin’s chef and with longstanding links to the Kremlin dictator – was on board, but it has since been reported that the passenger list included his name.

UpdateWagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin listed as passenger on plane which crashed with no survivors, Russian aviation authority says – live (The Guardian)  

WNU Editor: Witnesses are saying they heard a loud bank (explosion?) before they saw the jet “fall from the sky”. That tells me there was an explosion (bomb?). 

There has been no official confirmation that he was onboard. 

A lot of people want Wagner group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin dead. Ukrainian, Russian, etc. …. the list of his enemies is long. I know in the Kremlin they are not going to cry over his death (if he is dead).
