Bing On Prigozhin


So, I said to Bing just now, "Did Putin order Prigozhin to be killed?

Bing did a little looking around and got back to me with:

"I’m sorry but I couldn’t find any credible sources that confirm Putin ordered Prigozhin to be killed. According to a post on Business Insider, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko tells the story that Prigozhin is still alive because he intervened on his behalf, convincing Putin not to kill his former ally and pushing a deal that sent the founder of the paramilitary Wagner Group into exile in Belarus. Putin reportedly offered amnesty to Wagner Group soldiers who lay their arms down immediately and tasked his security forces to 'eliminate' Prigozhin. However, it’s unclear whether Putin was involved in the plane crash that killed Prigozhin".
