It's Not Just Windows and Poison, Apparently

Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the infamous Wagner Group, was on a plane to Moscow when it "crashed." It was also apparently missing a wing, which likely means there was either an explosive on board or (depending on who you believe) the Russian Air Force shot it down.

Both are plausible.

It's still stunning that he decided to march on Moscow and very nearly made it, and even more stunning that he thought he was untouchable going forward, when the list of "mysterious deaths" during Putin's regime is staggeringly high.

A feeling of invincibility is a hell of a drug, as the saying goes.
