Flight attendant sent revealing message about Prigozhin's private jet before fatal crash

Trending Now

39-year-old Kristina Raspopova, a flight attendant aboard Yevgeny Prigozhin's private jet, sent a revealing message to her family before the plane took off. She reported an "inexplicable delay" and that the aircraft was being "repaired" before the flight.

According to information from the Telegram channel VChK-OGPU, it was Raspopova who sent the message to a family member about an "inexplicable delay" before the plane took off.

"She said she was in Moscow and that she would fly today or tomorrow," the family member told VChK-OGPU. "The plane was under maintenance or had some emergency repairs. They were waiting for the plane. It was some form of maintenance, and nothing special."

A few hours later, the plane crashed, believed to have cost Prigozhin and nine other people their lives. Onboard the private jet were a total of ten people, including three crew members, all of whom have lost their lives, according to Russia's emergency ministry.

After the crash, earthly remains of seven passengers and three crew members are alleged to have been found. Daily Star reports that this also includes Raspopova.

It is important to emphasize that it has not been officially confirmed that Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin is dead. Russia has confirmed that Prigozhin is among the deceased in the plane crash, but it is naturally difficult to take this for granted.

There are also rumors that another Wagner leader, Dmitry Utkin, who helped form the group and is himself called "Wagner," may have died in the plane crash.

This incident has raised questions and concerns about the safety and maintenance of private jets, especially those owned by high-profile individuals.

The message sent by the flight attendant before the flight adds to the mystery surrounding the crash and may lead to further investigations into the circumstances that led to this tragic event.
