Kremlin: Putin will not attend Prigozhin’s funeral


Peskov said the Kremlin had no information about Prigozhin’s funeral and that Putin’s presence was “unexpected”.

Regarding the possibility of Putin attending the funeral, Peskov previously said: “We still don’t know how long the investigation procedures will take, the president usually has a busy schedule.”

And he added, “The Russian president has a very busy schedule right now.”

Peskov said there are no official dates yet for Yevgeny Prigozhin’s funeral.

Prigogine’s murder confirmed

Two days ago, in Moscow, it was announced that genetic tests confirmed the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the private Russian “Wagner” group.

The crash was confirmed by a Russian investigative team.

The group said in a statement that “genetic tests have demonstrated that the identities of the ten dead recovered from the wreckage match the list of passengers and crew.”


Prigozhin was on board with 6 companions and a crew of 3, including his assistant Dmitry Utkin, the pilot, his assistant and a flight attendant.

The plane, which was en route from Moscow to St. Petersburg, crashed in the Tver region.

On another issue, a spokesman for the Russian president said Putin had never discussed Western sanctions against Russia with German Chancellor Olaf Schultz or French President Emmanuel Macron.

He added that Kiev is doing everything possible and impossible to draw Western countries into a conflict with Moscow as much as possible.
