Confusion As Wagner Boss, Prigozhin Dismisses Reports Of His Elimination In New Video
A tantalising new video appears to show slain 🇷🇺 Russian Wagner PMC warlord Yevgeny Prigozhin commenting on his ‘elimination’ after he was reportedly killed.
It comes amid a wave of conspiracy theories that the Wagner boss may have cheated death by putting a body double on his doomed business jet which crashed in Russia on 23 August.
Many in the West believe he was assassinated at the behest of Vladimir Putin in revenge for the coup he led in June against the dictator’s regime.
In the footage, Prigozhin, 62, is seen wearing military fatigues in a car, and says: ‘For those discussing whether or not I am alive.
How am I doing? It’s the weekend, the second half of August. I am in Africa,’ he says, speaking to camera. ‘So fans of discussing my elimination, intimate life, earnings or whatever, as a matter of fact, everything is fine.’
