In a shocking turn of events, a business jet with the registration number RA-02795, identified as the “Embraer Legacy 600,” and owned by Evgeny Prigozhin, was brought down by anti-aircraft fire under the jurisdiction of the Russian Ministry of Defense in the Bologovsky District of the Tver Region. The preliminary information suggests that there were seven individuals on board at the time of the incident. Local residents reported hearing distinct anti-aircraft explosions before the plane’s descent, and this observation is backed by the presence of inversion trails in the sky as captured in video footage, along with accounts from eyewitnesses.

The details surrounding the incident are currently being clarified. The plane, which crashed in the Tver Region, had Evgeny Prigozhin listed among its passengers, as confirmed by Rosaviation (it has been confirmed, Progozhin died in the incident).

It has been reported that the aircraft was shot down in the skies over the Tver Region by the air defense forces of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The plane, which was privately owned and part of the Embraer Legacy 600 fleet, disappeared from radar at approximately 18:20. Air traffic controllers attempted to establish communication with the crew but were unsuccessful. Subsequently, aviation dispatchers notified the Russian Ministry of Defense and the air defense units about the unfolding situation.

The video evidence aligns with this version of events, showcasing two distinct anti-aircraft explosions and inversion trails in the sky. This strongly indicates that the possibility of a terrorist attack can be ruled out, as there was no structural damage evident in the aircraft.

Contrary to reports from the Rossiya-24 TV channel, there is no confirmation of Yevgeny Prigozhin's death. The channel only stated that Prigozhin was on the passenger list. The incident has also reached the attention of U.S. President Biden.

The Federal Air Transport Agency released the following information regarding the crash in the Tver Region, be aware that the Ferderal Air Transport Agency is under control of the Kremlin so it is unclear of all the information is true):

  • A dedicated investigative committee has been formed to ascertain the circumstances and causes of the Embraer-135 (EBM-135BJ) aircraft crash.
  • The aircraft was under the ownership of MNT-Aero LLC, specializing in business transportation.
  • The flight was en route from Moscow to St. Petersburg, with seven passengers and three crew members on board.
  • The committee is currently collecting factual data related to crew training, aircraft condition, meteorological conditions along the flight route, dispatch services' activities, and ground radio equipment.
  • Experts will focus on retrieving objective control data from the aircraft for subsequent analysis of the flight data recorder.

While Yevgeny Prigozhin is confirmed dead, official confirmation is yet to be received. Reports of Dmitry Utkin being on the plane remain unverified. Leading news outlets confirm that at least 10 individuals were on board the crashed plane. Video footage suggests that a Russian air defense missile likely caused the crash.

At present, the only confirmed details are that the aircraft was owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, leader of Wagner PMC, and frequently used by him and his associates. Foul play is highly suspected in this incident. Wagner PMC has not issued any statements or comments on the matter.

This article will be updated as more information becomes available, including confirmation of the identities of those on board and the status of the Wagner leadership.
