“It seems that the primary data indicates that there were employees of the Wagner company there. I would like to point out that these are people who have made a significant contribution to our common cause of fighting against the neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine. We remember it, we know it and We will not forget it”, added the Head of State.

The president also spoke about his relationship with Yevgeny Prigozhin. “I have known him for a long time, since the early 90s. He was a man with a difficult destiny. He made serious mistakes in life and achieved the results he needed, both for himself and when I asked him about it,” he noted.

The president also called Prigozhin “a talented person and a talented businessman.”

“Yesterday he just returned from Africa. He met here with some officials. He worked not only in our country, and he worked with results, but also abroad, in Africa in particular. There he dealt with oil, gas, precious metals and stones . “, – said Vladimir Putin.

The Russian leader did not bypass the issue of investigating the causes of the plane crash.

It will be carried out in its entirety and brought to an end.” , assured the head of state.

“We will see what the researchers say in the near future,” Putin added.

Recall that on Wednesday night a private Embraer Legacy plane crashed on the territory of the Tver region near the village of Kuzhenkino. The plane flew from Moscow to St. Petersburg. According to eyewitnesses, the plane fell sharply and uncontrollably. This is confirmed by the videos they posted. They show how the smoking plane rapidly loses altitude. However, it did not burn.

According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, there were 10 people on board. Three crew members and seven air passengers. A list of all the people who were supposed to be on board was published. Among them are the founder of the PMC “Wagner” Yevgeny Prigozhin, his “right hand”, the head of the “Wagnerists” Dmitry Utkin, Prigozhin’s guards, as well as other people involved in the activities of the PMC. Plus two pilots and a stewardess. All those on board died. His remains were first taken to the Tver morgue and then transported to Moscow for identification. The bodies were badly burned and some were even torn to pieces. Therefore, it will not be possible to quickly identify the identity of the deceased. You will need a DNA test.

The commission of investigation has not yet given its version of the causes of the accident. “All the necessary forensic examinations have been appointed and a series of investigative actions will be carried out to establish the causes of the accident,” the ICR said.

The case is being investigated under article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “violation of the rules of traffic safety and operation of air transport”. Previously, this meant pilot error or a technical problem with the aircraft. But other versions are not excluded. In particular, some of the details observed by the experts point to an explosion on board the plane. On August 24, intelligence agencies and investigators interviewed all airport employees who had access to a business plane before its departure.
