(ORDO NEWS) — The probable death of the owner of the “Vagner” PVK Yevgeny Prigozhin will have a destabilizing effect on his mercenaries. Currently, there are no candidates who could lead the military formation. This is reported by the intelligence of Great Britain.
It is noted that on August 23, two months after the mutiny of the “Wagner” group, an Embraer business jet associated with “Wagner” crashed near Tver, between Moscow and St. Petersburg.
The Russian authorities claim that 10 people died on board, including the owner of “Wagner” Yevgeny Prigozhin.
“So far, there is no confirmed evidence of Prigozhin’s presence on board, given his special security measures. But there is a possibility that he really died”, – noted in the intelligence of Britain.
They add that Prigozhin’s death will be an extremely destabilizing factor influencing the Wagner group.
At the same time, intelligence does not see who can currently lead the “Wagner” PMC, because characteristic personal qualities, such as hyperactivity, exceptional courage, steadfastness in achieving the goal and high cruelty, which Prigozhin had, are unlikely to be found in any successor.
“The leadership vacuum in the “Wagner” group will be strengthened by reports that the founder and field commander Dmytro Utkin and the head of the rear Valery Chkalov are also dead,” British intelligence emphasizes.
