Details: In a conversation with Denis Pushilin, the Kremlin-appointed head of the occupied part of Donetsk Oblast, Putin expressed his condolences to all those who died in the crash and spoke about the talents of Prigozhin.

“I have known Prigozhin for a long time, since the beginning of the 90s. He was a man of a difficult fate; he had made some serious mistakes in his life, but he achieved the results he needed, both for himself and, when I asked him, for a common cause, like in these last few months. He was a gifted man, a talented businessman,” Putin said.

Putin also praised the Wagnerites for participating in the war against Ukraine. He claimed that “these are the people who have made a historic contribution to our common cause of fighting against the neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine”. He promised that he would not forget about this.

  1. Putin showed with the murder of Prigo not only that he is a terrorist but also terribly weak and desperate. The ‘boys’ will deal with his sorry ass soon!

  2. “these are the people who have made a historic contribution to our common cause of fighting against the neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine”

    Let’s forget about the nazi tattoos on your terrorist leaders, eh?

    • Zelensky, who lost family during the Holocaust a Nazi? This paranoid swine needs better medication or better be locked up in a mental institution. RuSSians and Serbs are suffering from severe Nazi paranoia and need professional help.

  3. Putin has ordered the arrest of the pilot of the other plane . He is detained for placing the bomb in the plane. The case is closed!

  4. Some believe Shoigu ordered the shoot down. Given that Prigozhin made a fool of Shoigu (not a hard job, I admit) and that Putin didn’t know about it.

    I can believe Shoigu ordered the shoot down, but have a very hard time believing that Putin knew nothing about it.
