Putin Offers Condolences Over the Death of Prigozhin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed condolences over the plane crash that killed Wagner mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin.

“As for the aviation tragedy, first of all, I want to express my most sincere condolences to the families of all the victims. It’s always a tragedy,” Putin said in televised remarks on Thursday.

Putin says Prigozhin was a ‘talented’ person who made ‘serious mistakes’ but achieved the right results.

The crash occurred exactly two months after Prigozhin led a mutiny against Russia’s army leadership, an act of rebellion that Putin at the time condemned as a treacherous “stab in the back”.

But after the revolt was quickly defused with a deal, Prigozhin and some of his fighters left Russia for Belarus.
