Wagner Leader Yevgeny Prigozhin Reportedly Killed in Jet Crash

Russian oligarch and mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, known as “Putin’s chef” for his catering companies that served Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin, was reportedly killed in a private jet crash on August 23rd, 2023. According to Russia’s emergency ministry, the plane was en route from Moscow to Saint Petersburg when it went down over Tver Oblast, killing all 10 people on board. Prigozhin was said to be among the passengers, though his press secretary did not confirm his presence. A Wagner-associated Telegram channel alternatively claimed that Prigozhin’s jet was shot down by Russian air defenses.

Prigozhin was born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) in 1961. His mother was a nurse and his father a mining engineer who died when Prigozhin was 9. He had been a close ally of Putin until initiating a rebellion in June. Following the incident, numerous conflicting reports and rumors about Prigozhin’s presumed death emerged online amid a flood of misinformation. The New York Times said it could not verify any claims. When asked about the crash, President Joe Biden said he was “not surprised,” adding that little happens in Russia without Putin’s involvement. Authoritative confirmation of Prigozhin’s reported death remains pending.

“I don’t know for a fact what happened, but I’m not surprised,” Biden said, adding: “There’s not much that happens in Russia that Putin’s not behind. But I don’t know enough to know the answer.”

At the start of the Ukraine conflict, Western nations imposed financial sanctions on Lyubov Prigozhina. These sanctions were due to the significant benefits her late husband Yevgeny Prigozhin had gained from public contracts with the Russian Ministry of Defense. Prigozhin’s contracts were related to the Crimea annexation and pro-Russian separatist occupation in eastern Ukraine.

Lyubov Prigozhina completed high school in Russia before pursuing higher education in the medical field. She graduated with a degree in pharmacy. Prigozhina started her career working as a pharmacist in various pharmacies across Russia.

Additionally, she owns the New Technologies SPA LLC situated at plot 1, Granichnaya Street in Lakhta Park, Sestroretsk, Kurortny District of Saint Petersburg.

Prigozhin’s son Pavel was born later, either in 1996 or 1998, which would make him in the range of 25-27 years old presently.

Yevgeny Prigozhin’s mother Violetta, along with his wife Lyubov and their two children Polina and Pavel, have all been sanctioned by Western nations. These sanctions are due to Yevgeny Prigozhin’s involvement in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and his ownership of entities like Concord Management and Consulting LLC.
