Prigozhin's accomplice, whom he left to "guard" Bakhmut, killed in Ukraine
In the war in Ukraine, Wagner's "Bieber" was killed, as Prigozhin left him to "guard" the city in May when Wagner left Bakhmut. The militant died about three weeks ago.
This was reported in Russian Telegram channels. Thus, following the leader of the PIK, Prigozhin's henchmen are also dying among the occupiers.
"Bieber, a well-known "musician" from Bakhmut, died three weeks ago in a battle with superior enemy forces," one of the pro-Russian Telegram channels wrote.
In this regard, Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky ironically noted that now there is practically no one to keep Bakhmut under occupation.
"Prigozhin was blown up, Bieber was killed. There is practically no one to hold Bakhmut," the journalist wrote.
It should be noted that in his address of 25 May, Prigozhin showed two militants - "Bieber" and "Dolik" - who allegedly led the seizure of the city. As Prigozhin ironically stated, after the withdrawal of the Wagner militants, these two were supposed to help the Russian military. He also emphasised that Bieber and Dolik led the entire Wagner campaign in Bakhmut.
To recap, the Russian Federation reported the death of the owner of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin. The Wagner leader crashed a plane in the Tver region.
US intelligence has also confirmed that the head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, died in a plane crash. It is believed to have been caused by a bomb explosion on board the aircraft.
