On Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden expressed his lack of surprise regarding reports suggesting the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of Russian mercenaries in a plane crash. Biden went on to comment that in Russia, few events occur without the involvement of President Vladimir Putin.

Experts speculate that this incident could serve as a method for Putin to signal a warning to potential betrayers or to showcase his backing for the Russian military, which Prigozhin had previously challenged with a failed armed mutiny in June.
