Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, who died in a suspicious plane crash, continues to be talked about two months after his death.
On August 23, it was claimed that the will of Prigozhin, who died while traveling from Moscow to Saint Petersburg, was revealed. The Russian Telegram account Port shared a photo purported to be a will document, claiming that they reached a copy of the will.
It is noteworthy that the document, which seems to have been prepared months before Prigozhin's death, was approved on March 2. In Prigozhin's will, it is seen that his 25-year-old son Pavel inherited all his assets and control of his business.
In the document, which was shared by many people in a short time, Pavel is listed as the sole heir to all of Prigozhin's assets, including the mercenary group Wagner. In addition, the Port account also included the claim that the Russian Ministry of Defence owed 800 million dollars to Prigozhin's business empire.
Prigozhin, who stands out with his controversial and charismatic personality, was among the favored names in Russia before he attempted a coup against President Vladimir Putin. With the Wagner group he led, he was also active on behalf of Russia in Syria, Ukraine, and African countries.
He died on July 23 when his plane crashed in the Tver region while traveling from Moscow to Saint Petersburg in his private plane.
