On Thursday, a video surfaced online of Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner Group, declaring that he is still alive and ‘everything’s OK.’ The clip was shared on a Telegram channel affiliated with Prigozhin’s mercenary organization a week following his presumed death in a catastrophic airplane accident.

In the video, a 62-year-old Prigozhin addresses the ongoing debates about his well-being and current whereabouts: |

“For those who are discussing whether I’m alive or not, how I’m doing — right now it’s the weekend, second half of August 2023, I’m in Africa,”

“So for people who like to discuss my liquidation or my private life, how much I earn or whatever else — everything’s OK,”

The video was shared without any additional context or details about when or where it was recorded. Previously, the Grey Zone channel shared what it claimed were some of Prigozhin’s “final” photographs from Africa, featuring him with a group of young black men. The post indicated that the pictures were taken in the Central African Republic “shortly before he left for Russia.”

The Kremlin’s spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, indicated in a conference call with reporters that ‘deliberate wrongdoing’ is one of the possible causes being considered by Russian investigators for the plane crash that reportedly killed Prigozhin. The crash, which occurred halfway between Moscow and St. Petersburg, resulted in the deaths of all seven passengers and three crew members on board.
