Sure, it appears Russian revolt leader Yevgeny Prigozhin’s plane was brought down by an internal explosion. And we all laugh at Putin’s expression of condolence about Prigozhin’s death because we assume that, of course, Putin was responsible.
But what if Prigozhin, knowing Putin would be plotting to kill him, faked his own death? He could have sent his plane to Moscow with his name on the passenger manifest and a bomb in the cargo hold. After the crash and his presumed death, he could live the rest of his life in relative anonymity, free of Putin plots.
Modern science will probably thwart that plan as DNA tests are being conducted on the human remains (those that are found). And true or not, we will be told that yes, Prigozhin died in the crash. Meanwhile, if his DNA is not found, Putin is certain to keep looking for him.
Yep, if I were Prigozhin, I’d have considered faking my own death …
