“I am not dead”- Confusuon as Wagner boss, Prigozhin resurfaces, dismisses reports of his ‘elimination’ in new video
Russian Wagner mercenary group chief, Yevgeny Prigozhin, has resurfaced in a new video “dismissing reports of his elimination”.
Sky News reports that the warlord insisted “Everything is fine” in a video filmed in Africa during “the second half of August.”
Recall that Prigozhin was reported to have died with other passengers in a plane crash in the Tver region near Moscow last Thursday.
It was claimed that the private jet carrying him was reportedly shot down by Russian military forces.
Wagner’s burial was later held in Porokhovskoye Kladbishche, St Petersburg on Tuesday.
In the short video, posted on Wagner’s Grey Zone Telegram channel, Wagner said, “For those talking about whether I’m alive or not, how I’m doing, now it’s the weekend, the second half of August 2023, I’m in Africa.
“For those who like to discuss my elimination, private life, income or other things – basically I’m fine.”
