The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden has reacted to the plane crash of the head of the Wagner mercenary group, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

Gists9ja had earlier reported that Prigozhin died alongside seven passengers and three crew who were on board the Embraer aircraft.

The plane crashed into a field in the Bologovsky district in the Tver region, 60 miles north of Moscow, bursting into a ball of flames.

President Biden, in his reaction on Wednesday, said he is not surprised at the news that Prigozhin died in a plane crash in Russia.

Biden, while addressing reporters after taking an exercise class with his family near Lake Tahoe, said, “I don’t know for a fact what happened, but I’m not surprised.

“There’s not much that happens in Russia that (President Vladimir) Putin is not behind.

“But I don’t know enough to know the answer” of what may have happened to the powerful former Putin henchman.

Prigozhin’s name was on the passenger list of the aircraft, which crashed northwest of Moscow, according to Russian state media.

The Wagner group leader had headed the mutiny in June, moving his troops from Ukraine, seizing the southern Russian city of Rostov on Don, and threatening to march on Moscow.
