“There was no external influence”: Putin was informed of the preliminary conclusions of the investigation about the causes of the crash of Prigozhin’s plane

There has not yet been an official announcement about the causes of the crash of the plane of the founder of the Wagner PMC, but Vladimir Putin made one statement on this topic. According to him, no external influence on the plane was detected.

Fragments of hand grenades were found in the bodies of those killed in a plane crash over the Tver region, such information is contained in the report of the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin. The examinations carried out by the RF Investigative Committee showed that there was no external influence on the aircraft; this is already a proven fact.



Surely the question is hanging in the air: what happened to the company’s management and so on. (...) the head of the Investigative Committee reported to me just the other day that fragments of hand grenades were found in the bodies of those killed in the plane crash. There was no external impact on the aircraft

- Putin said, adding that examinations of the bodies of the victims for alcohol and drugs were not carried out.

The president also noted that it is not correct to call the Wagner group a PMC; this name was invented by journalists. There are no private military companies in Russia, since there is no corresponding legislation. According to him, the participation of the group’s fighters in the special operation was caused by necessity, so when the Ministry of Defense received a proposal to involve Wagner in the SVO, he agreed. First of all, because people went to fight voluntarily. To date, several thousand fighters of the group have signed contracts with the military department.

Let us recall that the Embraer Legacy business jet, owned by Evgeny Prigozhin, crashed near the village of Kuzhenkino in the Tver region while flying from Moscow to St. Petersburg on August 23, 2023. There were 10 people on board, including the crew. In this disaster, Yevgeny Prigozhin himself and Dmitry Utkin, after whom the group was named, died.

    If there were no toxicological tests, why hint to the whole country that they blew up a grenade while using cocaine? And why weren’t they told about 5 kilograms of cocaine 3 months ago?

      He didn't say that the grenade was blown up while he was high on cocaine. There was an impact inside, and coke was found in the office, that’s what he said, as Bastrykin reported to him.

          The girls dance interestingly. Either they throw themselves on a knife 32 times, then they jump from the window shooting 3 rounds at the temple, then they try to explode grenades on the plane 5 times like that. that at first there were pops and panims and strange contrails.

        When was the search carried out for XNUMX hours? There was no talk of coke/cocaine back then. All this is suspicious, now I stutter about alcohol and drugs, as if in passing...

        Boxes with a large amount of cash were found in the office of the founder of the Wagner PMC Evgeniy Prigozhin in St. Petersburg. A source from TV channel “24” reported this on June 78.

        And evil tongues said that an explosion occurred in the landing gear, which is why the wing flew off.
        But the version is of course luxurious - Wagner’s top commanders got high on cocaine and began throwing grenades in the cabin...
        But let it be as it is said, for the truth is covered in darkness. The main thing is that Wagner commanders and instructors are already training reserves and are present in active units. And this is the most rational use of such a valuable human resource.

      What does cocaine have to do with it? It can add courage and cheer up, but suicide is usually caused by depression. During the American Civil War, both the North and the South invigorated soldiers before battle with cocaine, it was in the order of things, and something about cases where they blew themselves up with grenades out of joy was unheard of.
      But bringing grenades on board, even without the intention of using them, is not the best idea, because the grenades explode.

            I'm talking about women and children living within a radius of a couple of kilometers from the headquarters. Prigozhin was definitely not afraid of an air missile strike at that moment.

        This is what my colleague writes about the sound in the cabin.
        And do business jets use laryngers? In my opinion, only both pilots have microphones. It’s as if there wasn’t a third purely cabin guy there. This means they write external sounds. This means the sound of the explosion must be recorded. Moreover, the location of the explosion is determined by the time difference in the recording of the explosion from 2 microphones.

        6 October 2023 00: 42
        I’m not sure how this is implemented in such (small private) planes (recording in the cockpit or only those microphones on the pilot).
        But when one entertainer got sad in 2015 and decided to kill himself as a pilot (he eventually crashed into a rock) of a large airliner, a recording appeared on the network.
        A knock was heard (the co-pilot was trying to get into the cockpit) and the voice of the machine said that the nose should be returned to its normal position. Like the pilot's screams too.

        If you can hear it in a big one, I could be wrong, but in a “business jet” it would be more audible, since the size is not the same, you can’t block the walls, and the sound insulation is more likely from the external space, the engines, and the cabin is so that the pilots don’t eavesdrop and the passengers don’t prevented from flying.

        It is clear that the explosion would have been heard. Or that he wasn't there. Or something else.

              Intonation. The fact that she drowned was already a well-known fact. They asked about something else. Everyone wanted to know more.

              Everyone wanted to know the details, but how did it happen that such a tragedy happened? Maybe it could have been avoided or was it inevitable? What happened?? An absurd tragedy, crime, sabotage or attack by adversaries?
              And this question primarily hung among those who lost their loved ones and friends there. And just for all the people who were worried. The answer to this painful question was simply discouraging and surprising. We expected to hear anything but this!

Saying that we will do everything for salvation, realizing in advance that there is little we can do?

          So, even if we assume that grenade fragments were in the bodies, this does not in any way indicate the absence of external influence. Simply put, the grenade could have detonated upon impact with the ground.

          He had great respect for Utkin, a true warrior and patriot of Russia.
          Therefore, it was strange that he led the campaign against Moscow. In fact, he, a patriot of Russia, committed an act (led a rebellion) to the detriment of Russia.
          It was his colossal mistake.
          After such mistakes, the officers (real officers) shot.
          But he could not simply shoot himself, since this act would remove the blame only from him personally, but the entire Wagner PMC suffered.
          They always said that the decision was made at a council of commanders.
          The overwhelming majority of commanders did not support the rebellion.
          The mutiny split the UNITY of the commanders.
          In essence, Utkin split the PMCs, deprived commanders (real, comrades in arms) and private personnel of funding and contracts in Africa.
          And most importantly, he ruined not only his own reputation, but also the reputation of Wagner, for which they paid with the lives of soldiers.

          It all depends on what goal he was pursuing.
          And for this you need to understand, “what happened?”
          What happened was that the rebellion could have ended in the collapse of Russia, the country for whose interests Wagner’s fighters fought and died.
          Those. he committed treason against his country (although it seemed to him that he was saving it with this rebellion).
          But neither the people nor the army supported him.
          From a defender of the fatherland, PMC Wagner (not just Utkin, but PMC Wagner) turned into a traitor.
          Utkin understood this, which is why he stopped his campaign against Moscow.
          But Wagner’s reputation (which was formed over the years and lives of fighters) was destroyed overnight.
          What Utkin got in the end: a split within the PMC (most of the commanders did not support the rebellion, but Utkin and Prigozhin did not take the commanders into account and started a rebellion).
          After this, PMCs could not exist as a single structure.
          Utkin was convinced of this by the number of fighters who followed him to Belarus (the vast minority) without any real prospects: funding, contracts in Africa.
          In short, PMC Wagner was destroyed and the fault was Utkin’s, who fell for the “songs of Moisha” (Prigozhin).

          He (Utkin) could, of course, simply shoot himself, which would have admitted his personal guilt, but he would not have prevented a split in Wagner.
          And it was precisely the split that needed to be prevented.
          Utkin understood this very well and decided to return Wagner’s reputation to his comrades, excluding himself and Prigozhin from it.

          And “plane crash” was quite suitable for this.

          Utkin, as a real officer and Warrior, could well have made such a decision (for the sake of his comrades).

            To do this, it would be enough to leave a suicide note/message for the media to kill Prigozhin, since he had access to the body, and shoot himself.

              Once again, for Wagner’s commanders and for Utkin himself, the main thing after the mutiny was TO OVERCOME THE SCHIPT.
              That was the main thing, not who would kill whom.
              ---
              Now on a slightly different side.
              1. In PMC Wagner, the decision was made at the COUNCIL of commanders.
              And this was VERY IMPORTANT.
              2. A minority of the Wagnerites took part in the rebellion (some say a third, others a quarter). In conditions of military discipline, this only means that the opinion of the commanders was divided. Moreover, the rebellion was supported by a minority.
              This means that Utkin acted contrary to the decision of the majority.
              He acted largely confident in his rightness and supported by Prigozhin.
              But neither the people nor the army supported him.
              The president even called it a betrayal.
              Utkin eventually realized this and stopped the column.
              3. None of the commanders (even those who did not support the rebellion) publicly spoke negatively about Utkin!
              This, on the one hand, testifies to the highest authority of Utkin, and on the other hand, the commanders understood that a split (and public squabbles are a split) would finally finish off the Wagner PMC.
              Wagner needed to be saved somehow - to isolate the unit from the odious Prigozhin, but at the same time to do this without internal squabbles.
              And this (rebellion) was Utkin’s fault, albeit instigated by Prigozhin.
              ---
              So, in order to somehow overcome the split, it was necessary not only to shoot Prigozhin (and especially leave a note), but to resolve this issue
              somehow differently, without externalizing Wagner’s internal contradictions.
              Once again, none of the commanders spoke negatively about either Utkin or Prigozhin. Although the jamb of both is more than obvious.

              Utkin, realizing his guilt before his comrades, decided to resolve this situation this way.
              Another interesting fact is that almost none of the famous commanders (with the exception of Utkin) were on this plane. Who knows, maybe Utkin ordered it this way.

                I'm wondering how such stupidity could even come to mind. Wagner did not need to be saved from anyone at all; his fate was completely determined during the negotiations between Putin and Prigozhin, in the presence of PMC commanders. That is, a certain consensus was reached (amnesty for PMC fighters; those who wish and did not participate in the putsch attempt can enter into a contract with the Moscow Region; those who do not wish - to Belarus or demobilization), and that’s all, from the outside no one else spoke to Wagner about the march to Moscow didn't threaten.
                From within, the split was only that some supported the rebellion, others did not. In such a situation, the maximum that is required from a leader to overcome such a split is resignation. with the appointment of someone who will suit the remaining commanders in the ranks. There is absolutely no need to kill yourself, Prigozhin, five colleagues, and certainly the innocent crew of the plane.
                Now let's consider option three, which has at least a shadow of plausibility. Let's say Utkin sees that Prigozhin has not calmed down and sees in him a threat to all of Wagner. In this case, he could still liquidate Prigozhin, but exactly as I said - him/himself/the note, and if there is no desire to make it public, then without the note. It would hardly have been difficult for Utkin to kill Prigozhin without any drama at all, without exposing himself, if there was a need for this.

                  Then someone blew up this grenade (or grenades). It’s also stupid to argue with this.

                  There are two situations: either it exploded accidentally or someone deliberately exploded it.

                  The first option is possible, but military people can handle grenades. There is a possibility but it is small.
                  The second option, someone deliberately blew it up - you need to look for someone who had a motive.

                  So, Utkin had the motive.

                  Utkin, incited by Prigozhin, decided to mutiny.
                  Utkin realized that he had committed BETRAYAL both in relation to his country and in relation to his comrades.
                  How should a combat officer, a warrior, feel in such a situation?

                  Wasn’t it he who created the Wagner PMC, wasn’t it he who set the most stringent requirements for the fighters there?!

                  What should I tell the fighters?
                  ---
                  Is it important that Utkin, pushed by Prigozhin, decided to revolt contrary to the opinion of the majority of commanders?
                  And this was a violation of the accepted decision-making procedure in Wagner, they were proud of it.
                  ----
                  The commanders were silent, not a single bad word addressed to Utkin, but they did not go to Belarus for Utkin, which indicated a decline in Utkin’s authority in the eyes of the commanders.
                  The commanders were silent and expected from Utkin what Utkin demanded from others in such cases.
                  Utkin did what he had to do, disappeared from Wagner and removed Prigozhin (the instigator of the rebellion) from there.
                  Prigozhin went on a rampage thanks to the support of Utkin.
                  So, Prigozhin in PMC Wagner is a joint of the same Utkin.
                  We get that Utkin is the founder of Wagner, and Utkin and Prigozhin are the gravediggers of Wagner (thanks to the rebellion).
                  But Wagner is not only Utkin and Prigozhin, but also commanders and fighters.
                  Of all of them, Utkin and Prigozhin failed.
                  ---
                  Why didn’t Utkin shoot himself, but chose a plane crash?
                  If Utkin had shot himself, everyone would have perceived it as WEAKNESS, but Utkin NEVER wanted to look weak, just as Wagner was everywhere perceived as STRENGTH, and not as weakness. Weakness disgusted Utkin.
                  So the crossbow was not suitable for Utkin, which means he messed up, which means he’s a weakling. So a plane crash is just that. Accident.

                  Did Prigozhin know that this flight was his last?
                  Why were there no other commanders?
                  ---
                  ZY The commanders are still silent and do not comment on the plane crash.
                  Why?
                  Maybe because they know something that others shouldn’t know.
                  Utkin was a WARRIOR, and he also passed away as a warrior, freeing Wagner (for his comrades) both from himself and from Prigozhin.
                  Warriors sacrifice themselves to save their comrades. That's how Utkin is.
                  ---------
                  Once again, it’s a fact: grenade fragments were found in the bodies.
                  Find an explanation for this fact yourself.

                The plane is unlikely to be destroyed by one grenade

                The explosion of a grenade on board the plane of the head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was flying at an altitude of approximately 8 kilometers, could not but lead to the destruction of the aircraft. This is what a pilot with 40 years of experience and former aircraft commander Vladimir Salnikov thinks.

                - What happens during such an explosion at an altitude of approximately eight kilometers? The plane is small - a business jet. Could the wing fall off from such an explosion?


                - The plane is sealed. At an altitude of eight kilometers, the air pressure inside the cabin corresponds to a level of 1500 meters. That is, the difference between the outer and inner contour is large. Air is taken from the engines, and the inside of the plane, as the pilots say, is inflated. If any explosion occurs at altitude, the plane will simply tear apart and the wings will fly off. All of this is entirely possible.

                Previously, sources close to the investigation claimed that a box allegedly containing wine was brought on board Prigozhin before the flight.

                  However, the plane did not collapse, but the console was cut off. If anything, the plane has one wing, but two consoles.


                  And I repeat:
                  The version of the explosive device is eliminated; this is the center section, one of the most durable parts of the wing structure, therefore, in the event of a plant, not only will the console be torn off, but also the fuselage will be destroyed.
                  What's left? It is the external impact, that is, the impact of high-speed objects, a narrow beam of fragments (circular field), or rods.

    In the Tver region, they discovered the wing and landing gear of a crashed plane, on board of which was the founder of the Wagner PMC, Evgeny Prigozhin, the Izvestia newspaper reports.

    The footage published by the newspaper shows a fragment of a wing with the inscription “02795”. Special equipment is working at the site where parts of the aircraft were found. “This is one of the large parts that fell off in the air and fell here in the forest next to the river,” the publication’s correspondent said.

    According to telegram channel “112”, the wing and landing gear of the business jet fell 3 km from the crash site, not far from the Kuzhenkino railway station.

    The day before, an element of the tail of Prigozhin’s crashed plane was found 3,5 km from the crash site. Another piece of the plane was found approximately 2 km from the crash site, at the entrance to Kuzhenkino.

    The company that produced the plane was not allowed to participate in the investigation of the crash of Prigozhin’s plane.

    Brazil invited Russia to jointly investigate the crash of Prigozhin’s plane, since the plane was manufactured by a Brazilian company. Moscow decided to study the evidence on its own

    Russia has notified its decision not to investigate the circumstances of the crash of the business jet of Wagner PMC founder Yevgeny Prigozhin in accordance with international standards “at the moment,” Reuters writes, citing the Brazilian Center for the Investigation and Prevention of Aviation Accidents (CENIPA).

    Previously, CENIPA, in order to improve flight safety, announced its readiness to join the investigation of the disaster if an invitation from Moscow is received, and the investigation proceeds in accordance with international rules.

    The investigation was also not allowed MAC.

    The IAC is organizing the process of investigating aircraft accidents on Russian territory, as follows from a 1998 government decree. This document approves the rules for investigating aviation accidents and incidents involving civil aircraft. But the committee said on August 30 that it was not conducting an investigation into the business jet crash. Representatives of MAK are not included in the commission of the Federal Air Transport Agency

    Initially, everyone was thrown out, so that later it would be more convenient to call the “Kremlin” version of the crash.

Very close, under the same name, are the huge GRAU warehouses, a little to the southeast, 10-15 kilometers away, the Khotilovo air defense airfield, where, by the way, the government air squad is based, fortunately Valdai is very close. But 30 - 40 km towards St. Petersburg there are two regiments of the Strategic Missile Forces, in Vypolzovo. And how did Prigozhin’s plane end up there? Miracles. Those interested can look at these objects in Yandex maps.

      There are no miracles.
      You will be surprised, but most civil planes from Moscow to St. Petersburg fly this way! Simply because it’s shorter and there are corridors (L4, N50 - you can look at skyvector.com in World Hi mode) for civil aviation. That’s why civilian airliners fly there all the time. Example: October 5, around 19 p.m.:



      But! They must always fly with their transponders turned on - with their own unique number assigned by dispatchers to a specific flight/flight plan. If the transponder is turned off, the plane turns into... a UFO. To which air defense in the area of ​​such objects logically reacts nervously.

      That’s why no one (being in their right mind) ever turns off the transponders on this Moscow-St. Petersburg highway.

      But for some reason Prigozhin’s business jet turned off the transponder (or did it turn off on its own?). At night on the day of the disaster, I looked at flightradar24 and there you can see how the transponder signals of that plane inexplicably disappeared along with its trajectory 140 km BEFORE the crash site (still near Shernevo, near Tver, coordinates approximately: 56.7574283N 35.4611206E).

      Here in the article: https://newizv.ru/news/2023-08-24/flightradar24-opublikoval-otchet-o-krushenii-samoleta-evgeniya-prigozhina-417409 there is that track in the screenshot - exactly up to this point of turning off the transponder under Shernevo, near Tver. And then there is no track! So the transponder turned off. But in the text the opposite is stated... as if they have some data for those 140 km after Shernevo, after Tver. Strange statements.

      I think they simply turned off the transponder at 15:10 UTC (at 18:10 Moscow time) over Shernevo. And the plane continued to fly like a UFO. Towards the strategic objects of our Motherland. As if to get out of it later: "we didn’t shoot down Prigozhin’s civilian plane, we shot down a mysterious target, a UFO without transponder signals!"A very convenient excuse. A very logical reason why the transponder suddenly (itself? from the outside?) turned off. Well, or flightradar24.com is lying.

        You're right. I looked at the flytradar. Indeed, one of the air corridors runs literally 10-15 km from Kuzhenkino and Vypolzovo. I can imagine how nervous the local anti-aircraft gunners are, because the scenario a la September 11, but here we cannot discount it.

          Moreover, I will say: before the COVID pandemic, some of the high-altitude (above 10.5 km) INTERNATIONAL corridors passed directly ABOVE Moscow.
          One from north to south N181 (from the USA, Canada to all sorts of Emirates) and back N156 over the Kremlin.

          And one N858 to Europe from Japan and China over Teply Stan and Butovo (the return M864 passes in the Sheremetyego area, just north of the Moscow Ring Road).

          I saw such planes over Moscow City a couple of times in clear weather and suddenly tensed up out of habit that the Moscow zone seemed to be prohibited for flights. It turned out to be no longer there. I did my research, asked people on the topic and learned a lot.

          But the tension remained: what if some pilot from the Emirates suddenly decided to dive from 11 km to the Kremlin? If he directs it well, then nothing can stop this...

            I know that they constantly fly over Moscow; I live in Vykhino and almost every day I see traces at high altitude from planes flying through the city center. It is unlikely that these are passenger sides, but then who? Weather scouts, government aircraft, military?? From Domodedovo, passenger planes pass very close to the Moscow Ring Road. And our ambulance helicopters fly almost every day and at low altitude; they have a site on the territory of the 15th hospital.

        The plane was from “partners”, and these “friends” can do any dirty trick, including intercepting control of the plane remotely. Moreover, you can turn off the transponder from any smartphone, if only you have the desire and skills. Next, the UFO is grounded according to the rules of combat duty. The version with a grenade could have arisen to justify holes in the elements of the aircraft. Something like this...

          7 October 2023 00: 00
          I strongly doubt that “you can turn off the transponder from any smartphone.” The transponder is made so that it can be turned off only from the remote control in the cockpit (sometimes not even with one toggle switch, but with two in different places). But, if a competent specialist digs around in the cockpit of this aircraft for half an hour/hour, then it is quite possible to arrange a delayed shutdown of this transponder. And not even just turning off.
          And the shutdown is so clever that the crew is sure that the transponder continues to work...
          This is more difficult, but probably also possible.

          Intercepting control of an airplane is generally in the realm of delusional conspiracy theories.

          Firstly, pilots and technicians/electronics engineers would have accidentally discovered this long ago when servicing aircraft. After all, it is unrealistic to avoid such an accident (especially if such a possibility is built into not one aircraft, but two, three or more) - and this has never happened. Nowhere in the world.

          Secondly, the ability to control the aircraft from the outside remotely, secretly built into any serial civil aircraft, of any type, any series and quantity, is simply a nightmare for any intelligence service in the world! Here all the special services will be united and on one side of the barricades - they don’t need that. After all, this possibility greatly simplifies the organization of terrorist attacks “like September 11th” - there is no need to look for ideological suicides and seize the cockpit of an airplane!
          Since the special services and airlines do not need this, they will cut such developments in the bud.

    The Investigative Committee of Russia confirmed the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin in a plane crash in the Tver region
    ---
    The reason may be much more prosaic.
    The mutiny split the Wagner commanders, the mutiny could have resulted in a civil war in Russia, the mutiny took the lives of Russian pilots, and finally, the mutiny put an end to the financing of the Wagner PMC and closed the road to Africa.
    And all because of the position of some Wagner commanders.
    Who knows, maybe the council of commanders blamed Prigozhin and Utkin for this?
    What does a screwed up but honored officer do?
    Perhaps Utkin decided (like a real officer) to die with dignity and open up new opportunities for PMC Wagner.

        So I had a philosophical attitude towards death.
        ----
        The PMC was named by his call sign - "Wagner", this is his brainchild, which instilled terror in his enemies.
        I think he sincerely loved PMC Wagner and was proud of its successes.
        At some point, probably under the influence of Prigozhin, he overestimated the capabilities of PMCs and, having split, Wagner rebelled.
        As a result, he lost funding and contracts in Africa (read: he let down his comrades in arms), discredited his brainchild, Wagner, essentially ruined it, but the reputation was created on the blood of the fighters.

        He had to somehow restore the good name of his brainchild PMC Wagner, return contracts in Africa, return funding, and punish the instigator of the rebellion Prigozhin.

            At PMC Wagner, the decision was made at the council of commanders.
            In fact, a minority of Wagner’s l/s took part in the rebellion.
            Those. Wagner split not in favor of the rebels.
            This means that Utkin led a column to Moscow against the will of the majority of commanders (comrades in arms, if that).
            After the mutiny, Wagner's reputation was undermined - and it was created at the cost of the lives of the soldiers.
            Funding has stopped and contracts in Africa are frozen.
            How after this Utkin had to look his commanders (comrades in arms) in the eyes.
            Utkin realized that Prigozhin had drawn him into a dirty business (he, a Russian patriot, had directed him against Russia).

    Moreover, the console is cut off near the fuselage.
    The version of the explosive device is eliminated; this is the center section, one of the most durable parts of the wing structure, therefore, in the event of a plant, not only will the console be torn off, but also the fuselage will be destroyed.

      And the air defense missile from the Pantsir-S1 air defense system is best suited for the role of this “external influence” (https://web.archive.org/web/20150723091841/http://dokwar.ru/publ/vooruzhenie/pvo_i_rvsn/ zenitnyj_raketno_pushechnyj_kompleks_zrpk_pancir_s1/16-1-0-186 )

      Namely, the 57E6-E anti-aircraft guided missile (destruction altitude up to 15 km, destruction range 20 km) - it leaves a surprisingly weak contrail at the target (or does not leave it at all during the last 10-15 km to the target).
      Simply because the active part of the rocket (the upper stage) only works for the first 2.4 seconds - this is less than 4 km of trajectory ( https://web.archive.org/web/20170929091327/http://army.lv/ru/pantsir-s1/703 /461 ), and then it fires back, accelerating the rocket to 1300 m/sec. Then only the sustainer stage flies - a warhead with rudders (the caliber of the warhead is smaller - this reduces losses due to aerodynamic drag, speed losses of approximately 40 m/sec per 1 km of travel, 400 m/sec per 10 km). This warhead with air rudders flies further towards the target, the remaining 10-15 km are simply due to inertia!

      No contrail at all...
      Here is a video from shooting at the range on this topic: https://youtu.be/H4TGyxubHM4?t=81 - the explosion is visible, but there is no contrail in front of the target.

      And at 18 km from the launch site, the speed of such a warhead is a considerable 780 m/sec. This is almost enough to catch up with a business aircraft at a speed of about 300 m/sec or less. 20 kg warhead hits the target just the core elements, cutting off the tail or wings of the target aircraft with a minimum of unnecessary fragmentation holes in the body.

    The wing and tail could fall off due to aerodynamic overloads, which at an altitude of 8 km can be very hard. When the An-24 fell apart in the air in the Soviet Union (slower speed, lower altitude), the scattering of fragments exceeded 700 meters. The wing, of course, would not have separated from the grenade explosion, but the plane could have become loose, at least from depressurization.
    And how and why the grenade exploded - maybe no one needs to know anymore. Prigozhin, in essence, was no longer a tenant. He encroached on the current configuration of power, which the real centers of power, whom it suits, could not tolerate. Security agencies, billionaires (ex-oligarchs), regional elites (for example, the Chechen). And there were more than enough external enemies. The king did not have to do anything himself to punish the presumptuous baron - he simply defiantly deprived him of his patronage, and no one is particularly keen to establish which of the dukes specifically reached out.

And several helicopters risked shooting at the PMC columns and immediately fell to the ground (if the pilots had known about the consequences, who knows where they would have flown; the 16 dead officers who defended the President from the coup were simply forgotten the next day). Well this is particular

          A day later, Wagner’s army was near Moscow. In the cities along the path of the PMC columns, no one even thought about resistance - the quiet ones sat on the couch, the most active ones, on the contrary, warmly welcomed the PMCs. Local authorities were inactive everywhere - the most experienced leaders managed to write on social networks - We are with the President! (though without specifying which one). Kadyrov’s men “stood in a traffic jam” on the highway all these days and never reached Rostov; in principle, no other behavior was expected from them

          The question is how long would Moscow resist under such conditions. Given the news - about who was supposed to be thrown to defend the capital - the police were urgently called and were given machine guns.
          And the already well-known barricades of communal vehicles

    Alcohol testing is carried out routinely, why wasn’t it done this time? The authorities continue to multiply lies, increasing mistrust in themselves.

      The stump is clear, there was an examination. Another thing is that the results will not be announced. Smart people understand why.

    The president also noted that it is not correct to call the Wagner group a PMC; this name was invented by journalists.
    Oh, these are great for meАtive journalists!
    “Wagner” is not to blame for going to Moscow, but for not getting there.

    In this investigation, the main thing for our management is not to expose themselves! It’s a pity that Shoigu wasn’t on the plane...

    The names of the people who personally insulted the guarantor, making him appear confused and frightened to the whole country and the whole world

    How could he be afraid of a staged riot))? this, of course, goes against the official version, but still, even this staged rebellion was not aimed at the guarantor, but rather at Shoigu and Gerasimov? No?

    Or maybe Prigozhin and Utkin planned this, they explode a grenade on the plane in the hope that the guarantor in Valdai is telling the truth, but they don’t trust him because it’s not logical. As a result, they confirm the status of heroes and also add innocent martyrs, while opponents are confirmed in the status of malicious liars... what a subtle revenge.
