“Yevgeny Prigozhin’s Business Empire in Turmoil: Assets Transferred Before Fatal Plane Crash”
– The stakes within the top business interests of Yevgeny Prigozhin, chief of the Wagner mercenary group, changed hands even before his death in a plane crash on August 23. Prigozhin’s assets were being transferred prior to his demise, according to a report by Russian media platform “Mozhem Obyasnit.”
– Changes occurred at Lakhta Plaza, a development firm controlled by Prigozhin’s son, Pavel Prigozhin, in the days leading up to his death. A subsidiary entity was established for tax purposes, and new general directors were appointed for companies owned by Prigozhin’s son after a failed mutiny led by the Wagner chief.
