‘Suspicious security breach’ on Prigozhin’s jet on day it crashed, reports claim

A "suspicious security breach" on board Yevgeny Prigozhin's final flight saw the doomed jet shown to "potential buyers" hours before it mysteriously crashed.

The Embraer Legacy 600 plane crash left Wagner Group leader Prigozhin and nine others dead, including alleged group founder Dmitry Utkin.

New footage of the security breach has since emerged of the plane being shown to potential buyers, while last-minute changes to the plane were also documented.

It would appear a turbo-refrigerator of "unknown origin" was fitted to the plane at the very last minute, with the Embrarer Legacy undergoing repairs just hours before its final journey.

An alleged security breach at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow could be linked to law enforcement officials according to a Telegram channel.

The channel claimed: "To take them to a secure area, and then on board, the [potential] buyers were declared as passengers of the flight."

Access to the plane for the law enforcement officials left them with an hour, from 9.30am to 10.30am, with the plane which crashed and killed all onboard just hours later.

Flight attendant Kristina Raspopova, 39, who had revealed to her loved ones there was a delay in the flight and the plane had undergone repairs, was also killed in the crash.

A potential buyer had allegedly shown up to the plane viewing with just a mobile phone with him, accompanied by a woman who had just a handbag.

One Telegram channel claimed: "Having examined the outside and inside the plane (from about 9.30am to 10.30am), they calmly left the air harbour.

"Soon Prigozhin, Utkin and others entered the plane. There was an explosion in the air."

It comes as buyers bypassed "all precautions" usually in place for the Wagner leader as they boarded the plane to have a look around just hours before his flight while repair experts attempt to find out "who installed" the unknown turbo refrigerator.
