A point of analysis and context on the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin.
In the early evening of 23 August, oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin’s private plane crashed in the countryside around Kuzhenkino, 30 km from Moscow. This major event of the summer of 2023 brings to an end the epic journey of the businessman, who mutinied against the Russian General Staff on the night of 23-24 June before abruptly reversing course. The crash claimed 10 lives, including 6 members of the Wagner empire: Alexander Totsin, Sergei Propustin, Evgeny Makarian, Valeri Chekalov, Dmitri Outkin and Evgeny Prigozhin. The event, which is being described by the international press and the Russian camp alike as a decapitation of the Wagner giant, is surprising both for the influence and popularity enjoyed by the group, and for the global context in which it takes place.Vous devez souscrire à un abonnement EurasiaPeace pour avoir accès au contenu - Prendre votre abonnement
