Putin Accused of Orchestrating High-Stakes Assassination Behind BRICS Summit

Putin’s Western critics are seizing the opportunity presented by the recent plane crash, in which Prigozhin was listed among the passengers. They are attributing the downing of the plane to Putin without presenting any concrete evidence.

Instead of presenting evidence of recent events, TheAtlantic, recalled a long list of unproven Putin assassinations:

Vladimir Putin’s Russia has long been a land of mysterious deaths. In 1998, soon after he had been appointed head of the security services, Galina Starovoitova, a parliamentarian who believed in bringing democracy to Russia, was gunned down in the stairwell of her apartment building in St. Petersburg. In 2006, Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist who had learned too much about the Chechen wars that Putin used to propel himself to power, met the same fate in the stairwell of her apartment building in Moscow. In 2015, Boris Nemtsov, an outspoken critic of Putin’s presidency, was killed by an assassin only steps away from the Kremlin. Other critics barely survived. In 2020, Alexei Navalny, organizer of the only truly national anti-Putin political movement, fell critically ill on a flight from Tomsk to Moscow after being poisoned.

All of these victims were Putin’s formal opponents, people who spoke or wrote in opposition to the kleptocracy he built. Since Putin launched his full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a different class of victims—members of the Russian business elite who were perhaps insufficiently loyal or insufficiently keen on the war—have also begun to die in strange circumstances. In the year and a half that has passed since February 2022, two gas-industry executives were found dead with suicide notes. Three Russian executives were killed, alongside their wives and children, in what appeared to be murder-suicides. The body of the owner of a resort in Sochi was discovered at the bottom of a cliff. Another executive was found floating in a pool in St. Petersburg. Others have fallen out of windows or down staircases in Moscow, India, the French Riviera, and Washington, D.C.


Why would Putin order the assassination of Prigozhin during a BRICS Summit?

Why would Putin assassinate Prigozhin in plain view, when it could be done discreetly behind the scenes, just like the summarized list of TheAtlantic is trying to suggest?

Who would benefit if Prigozhin were assassinated while Putin is occupied with the BRICS Summit, seemingly to disgrace him before the Global South and the world at large?

Who were the individuals or entities that threatened South Africa with consequences if it didn’t implement the ICC arrest order against Putin?

If we look at history, this type of assassination started World War 1, and has the hallmark of Jesuit Assassins behind it. Now, they have the CIA to do the same dirty tactics for them, at a time when their Ukraine operation is not producing the desired outcome.

Update 25aug2023: Putin has confirmed the death of his friend “for a long time…

“I knew Prigozhin for a very long time, from the beginning of the 1990s. He was a man of difficult fate, and he made serious mistakes in life… He was a talented person, a talented businessman, he worked not only in our country and worked with results, but also abroad, in Africa in particular… It seems that the primary data indicate that employees of the Wagner company were also there. I would like to note that these are people who have made a significant contribution to our common cause of fighting the neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine.”

Putin stated during a meeting with Denis Pushilin, the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
