The Russian mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin talks about his security in a new video, which showed him supposedly in Africa only days before his death. He also addressed the speculations around his wellbeing and possible threats to his security.
In the video, Prigozhin can be heard saying that it is second half of August 2023 and he is in Africa. “So for people who like to discuss wiping me out, or my private life, how much I earn or whatever else- everything’s ok,” he stated while waving his hand in video published by the Grey Zone Telegram channel which is linked to his Wagner Group.
The location or the date of the video, which was filmed in a moving vehicle, was not verified. His camouflage clothing and hat matched the video, which was released on August 21, wherein he had also claimed to be in Africa.
His “weekend’ reference implied the latest clip must have been filmed on August 19 or 20, which is only a couple of days before he along with other top Wagner figures and bodyguards died in a plane crash north of Moscow on August 23.
