— Putin probably approved Prigozhin killing, western officials say
— plane may have been destroyed by a bomb on board, rather than a surface-to-air missile
— Russia’s own investigation is examining the bomb theory https://t.co/hQ9kZe23jk

Apologies (trigger warning) in advance; we all have our niches. Adam is an expert on such topics, whereas I bricolage bits off the internet…
Having mastered epidemiology, large language models, and submarine engineering, I would now like to explain why Yevgeny Prigozhin's crash was most likely the result of adverse weather conditions…(1/87)

Like Teremok, Prigozhin can be found in locations all across Moscow.

Prigozhin a pine box, if they can find enough of him.

Prigozhin’s last words were “What airdefense doing”

Evgeny Prigozhin, to whom Vladimir Putin gave his solemn word no harm would come in exchange for ending his fighting, was shot out of the sky by Russian air defenses today.
Anyways, here's why Ukraine needs to negotiate with Russia right now…

Blowing up pipelines, assassinating oil executives, shooting down private jets, collapsing GDP… truly, Vladimir Putin is degrowth's strongest soldier.

Finally a REAL journalist asking the important questions like, "did the US sneak into Russia and fire a rocket to do a false flag in order to take out the guy who Putin was beefing with (b/c he tried to do a coup a month ago)?" Thank you, Max! https://t.co/i5IodlzcQZ

??Putin has urgently returned from Kursk???? to Moscow????.
The situation in ???? is unstable: Politically, economically, and militarily.
Putin’s core support is hardcore nationalists: Those who loved Prigozhin.
The situation can spiral out-of-control at any moment. pic.twitter.com/gZNHC18yPc

He just died? Wow. I didn’t know that. You are telling me now for the first time. He led an amazing life. What else can you say. Whether you agreed or not, he was an amazing man who led an amazing life. I am actually sad to hear that. I am sad to hear that. pic.twitter.com/mM2JeLXbEe

One advantage the "woke" US military has over the Russian military is that its institutions and chain of command are strong enough to avoid reliance on external private mercenaries loyal only to their leader who then mutinies against the state before his own unceremonious demise
