Watch: Putin Breaks Silence, Gives Condolences After Dying of Prigozhin Wall Avenue Journal. Not paywalled. Edited however the longest clip I’ve seen in English thus far.

Dying of Prigozhin: Causes & Suspects; No Ind Day Victory; US Tells Ukr Give Up Bakhmut; BRICS Grows Alexander Mercouris, YouTube

I hate to have to debate Prigozhin however I have to level out:

Primarily based on recognized information, there isn’t any sturdy purpose for Putin to have had Prigozhin killed, notably as Alexanader Mercouris factors out, through the BRICS summit, and in Russia versus Africa, the place his dying could possibly be ‘splained away. The very last thing he would need to do is threat turning Prighzhin right into a martyr. And Putin had the means, and was most likely on the way in which to constructing a case for the mom of all corruption trials Except for the time in Syria when Prigozhin was freelancing after which the Russian authorities refused to cowl for his rogue motion and his males received whacked, I recall rumors of him working blood diamonds and Russian investigators being killed.

That might have enabled the state to strip Prigozhin of most if not all of his remaining wealth, and of Wagner, and most vital, discredit him.

Now there could possibly be darkish matter, that indirectly Prighozihin posed an imminent risk and the Kremlin concluded they may not comprise him quickly sufficient some other method. However that might not be leaking positions even when he had that intel. The US and Ukraine can see that with ISR. Weapons schematics? Weapons samples?

However they may presumably simply arrest him on corruption now even when the costs weren’t perfected.

Having stated that, Trump appeared, relying in your perspective, very relaxed or low vitality. Headlines like Trump lashes out at Fox Information, Invoice Barr, Chris Christie in Tucker Carlson interview The Hill are an excessive mischaracterization, even earlier than attending to the truth that Trump’s largest goal was, predictably, Biden. Possibly Trump thinks he’s a horse in an extended distance race protecting a cushty tempo within the again stretch.
