Russian officials have confirmed the death of the boss of Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin after genetic analysis of bodies found in Wednesday’s plane crash.
Naija News had earlier reported that the incident happened in Bologovsky district in the Tver region, 60 miles north of Moscow.
Prigozhin died alongside seven passengers and three crew who were on board the Embraer aircraft.
The Investigative Committee in a statement released on Sunday said the identities of all 10 victims had been established and corresponded to those on the flight’s passenger list.

They fully match the list on the flight manifest,” the committee said in a statement to Interfax, the Russian newswire.
