Prigozhins flight attendant complained about urgent repairs just before crash

Wagner Group mercenary cries at shrine for Yevgeny Prigozhin

A flight attendant on the plane that crashed killing Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin had complained about waiting for unexplained repairs to the doomed jet just before take-off.

The latest report follows claims that explosives were loaded onto the plane hidden inside an “expensive wine” crate before ten people died in the crash.

Tensions between Wagner boss Prigozhin and Vladimir Putin had been high after staging a short-lived coup just two months ago.

It led to speculation that the crash was an act of revenge from Putin, who called the Wagner group “traitors”.

UK intelligence source said the tyrant had ordered his FSB secret service to assassinate his former friend who had previously been referred to as “Putin’s chef”.

A photo of Prigozhin’s flight attendant Kristina Raspopova posted on Facebook showed her waiting at the airport cafe to board the jet.

Before boarding, the 39-year-old told her family of an unexplained hold-up and suggested the aircraft was being “repaired” before the flight, according to VChK-OGPU Telegram channel.

One of Kristina’s relatives said: “She said that she was in Moscow, she was going to fly out, today or tomorrow. The aircraft was under maintenance or some urgent repairs.

“They were waiting for the flight. Some kind of maintenance, well nothing special.

Prigozhin’s jet was filmed spiralling to the ground from 28,000ft in a fireball as smoke poured out.

The Institute for the Study of War said their findings show Putin “almost certainly” ordered the Russian military to bring down the jet.

Rumours on Russian social media claim a bomb-laden wine case was loaded onto the plane before it took off. Investigators are probing the possibility an explosive was put into the jet’s landing gear apartment, reports Telegram channel Shot.

And detectives are understood to be suspecting Prigozhin’s personal pilot Artem Stepanov, according to the channel.
