Wagner soldiers release statement after Prigozhin killed in plane crash


Wagner soldiers release statement after Prigozhin ‘killed’ in plane crash’: ‘We are already starting’

Wagner soldiers released a video statement after the group’s leader was presumed dead on Wednesday (23 August) following a plane crash north of Moscow that killed all 10 people on board.

"We will say one thing... we are already starting," the group said.

Russia’s civil aviation agency, citing comments from the airline, said the mercenary chief was on board the aircraft.

Prigozhin was on the passenger list for the plane, but it wasn’t immediately clear if he was on board.

The Wagner chief mounted a short-lived mutiny against Russia’s military leadership in late June.
