Jet Linked to Prigozhin Touches Down in Belarus

A jet, connected to Wagner PMC leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, landed in Belarus on Tuesday, potentially carrying him into exile following his mutiny against the Russian military.

In the past hour, an Embraer Legacy 600 jet, bearing identification codes matching those associated with Prigozhin in US sanctions documents, descended to a landing altitude near the capital city of Minsk in Belarus.

The aircraft first showed up above Rostov, the southern Russian city that Prigozhin’s forces briefly took on Saturday.

Prigozhin was last seen in public on Saturday night, smiling and shaking hands as he departed Rostov in an SUV.
