Sources: pilots are hardly to blame for the crash of the Embraer plane with the leadership of the Wagner PMC

Washington does not yet have exact data on the causes of the crash of the Embraer Legacy 600 aircraft in Russia, as a result of which on August 23 the leaders of Wagner PMC Evgeny Prigozhin and Dmitry Utkin, as well as 8 other people, including crew members, were killed. This was stated by US President Joe Biden, adding that his country will definitely try to establish all the circumstances.

You may remember when you asked me about Prigozhin, I said that if I were him, I would be careful about what I drink and what I drive. I don't know exactly what happened, but I'm not surprised

Biden added.

In turn, the city authorities of St. Petersburg have already been asked to name one of the streets of the northern capital of the Russian Federation in honor of Prigozhin. On August 25, State Duma deputy Vasily Vlasov (LDPR) sent a written appeal to the city administration about renaming the street where the Wagner Center is located in honor of the deceased Russian businessman and public figure.

At the same time, the VChK-OGPU Telegram channel reported on August 26, citing its sources of information, how co-pilot Rustam Karimov ended up in the service of Prigozhin. This is the "youngest" crew member from among the employees serving the flights.

Prior to that, he flew on an Airbus airliner of the Perm branch S7 and he had 1,5 thousand flight hours on this aircraft. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Karimov was made redundant by S7, after which he went to work for Sirius Aero. There, he flew an Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy 600 business class aircraft. He had 160 flight hours and was preparing to become an aircraft commander, but it did not work out due to the termination of the air carrier's activities in 2022.

In April 2023, Karimov came for an interview at the MNT-Aero company, which was engaged in the transportation of Prigozhin. The applicant passed all the tests and did not raise any questions or suspicions from the security service of PMC "Wagner". At the end of May, he made his first flight (a flight to Vladivostok) as a co-pilot with the main passenger on board and since then has been a permanent member of the crew.

Interlocutors of the Cheka-OGPU doubt that Karimov could be involved in the disaster. Like the first pilot, he flew with the head of the PMC for a long time

    It's like with a rebellion, at the initiative of Prigozhin, or an explosion of northern streams ....
    No one knew anything, they all took water in their mouths ....
    And only then ...., American storytellers began to talk about what they all knew in advance.
    So here - it's not us! And then everyone will be blamed in a row, but not themselves.

    The "fifth column" in the Kremlin killed Prigozhin on the second attempt (the first was when powerful land mines were installed on the path of Wagner's movement. The performers were caught red-handed, handed over to the FSB and .... silence), and before that he died with more than strange circumstances Stremousov, who was categorically against leaving Kherson. And Strelkov was put in jail - are these also Ukrainian saboteurs? Without a purge of Western agents of influence in the Kremlin who are taking direct orders from the West, Putin will face an unenviable fate. It is impossible to fight with the world devil having witches and demons in the Government in the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

      Yes, and citizenship and passport do not play a role here.

    Embraer has a suspicious habit of crashing at "convenient" times and with "uncomfortable" passengers on board... Recall how it suddenly collapsed in Afghanistan with security forces on board after the assassination of General Soleimani...

    Don't you all think that Prigozhin, after everything that happened, should have left the race altogether and retired? But how to do this if, with the huge funds that he has earned, it is dangerous in the West and abroad in general, he is outlawed there, and in Russia the same special services of Ukraine will encroach on him? That's right - to emit a catastrophe with a lot of fire and deformation of equipment in order to make it difficult to identify, for example, aviation. Go through a plastic surgery clinic and change documents. And to live and live in peace, all the same, he is not a few years old .. In addition, and to others who participated in the production, he will help to do this and continue to live comfortably and safely.
    Well, the management of the PMC will be transferred to Surovikin (he and Prigozhin are on very good terms since Syria, practically friends). It was not for nothing that they decided to transfer General Surovikin, who was very good in military affairs, to another job - a position, obviously this time while he was gone, Surovikin, in matters in Ukraine, he took over from Prigozhin and he brought him up to date, including Africa. . There, another general will help him. These are exactly the people who negotiated with him during the rebellion. The Prigozhinsky council of PMC commanders will fully support the new commanders, since he also knows them well.
    This is of course an assumption, but it has the right to life.

    True, there is more. The army (Russian Air Force) did not forget who destroyed our aviation equipment with crews and destroyed Prigozhin’s plane with an aviation missile, an attack from the front on intersecting courses from a distance of 60-100 kilometers. Therefore, the tail section of this type of aircraft, after the defeat, turned out to be torn off and at some distance from the main part, and the wing was also torn off. Moreover, the flight schedule of any aircraft over the territory of Russia is coordinated, among other things, with the military air defense control center and controlled by them. Therefore, they knew exactly who was flying, where and when. Well, the hour of reckoning has come.
    But we will never know this, and absolutely everything will be done during the investigation to recognize a different version of what happened.

    Judging by the bad fuss around the foreign contingent of Wagner, someone managed to throw Russian business out of Africa with one blow (the assassination of Prigozhin). It's my personal opinion. But my personal attitude towards the late head of the former PMC remained unchanged - he is a criminal.
