Unconfirmed information has appeared in Russia that a suspect has allegedly appeared in the case of the plane crash of the head of PMC "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin. It is stated that it is Artem Stepanov - a personal pilot of "Putin's cook", who had access to his business jet and went to Kamchatka before the explosion.

This was reported by one of the insider Telegram channels of the aggressor country on the morning of August 24, the second day after Prigozhin's death. Stepanov, according to his data, tried to find the law enforcement agencies of the Russian Federation, but without success. He was "lost" in a remote region of the Russian Federation.

It is known that Stepanov is a former founder of MNT Aero (the owner of the crashed jet).

"The only thing his sibling was able to report was that he was allegedly camping for the third day and without communication," the report said.

The author of the Telegram channel said that Russian security forces are actively looking for Prigozhin's personal pilot, but there is a possibility that he has already left the Russian border.
