Russian Wagner Leader Yevgeny Prigozhin Reportedly Killed in Plane Crash
The mercenary who led a failed rebellion against Russian President Vladimir Putin was reportedly killed in a fiery plane crash. Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin was said to be on the plane that was shot down by Russian air defenses. Two months ago, Prigozhin’s feared Wagner mercenaries mutinied against Putin and marched toward Moscow. When the plot was foiled and the leaders were given amnesty, many observers said he was a dead man walking.
