On Friday, a Wagner Group flag was seen flying at the crash site of the plane that killed Russian mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin.
In a picture taken by Portal, the flag is seen tied to a tree branch next to a pile of stones and flowers near the village of Kuzhenkino outside Moscow.
The flag features a white skull and the inscription “PMC Wagner Group” in English and Russian.
Prizoghin died there on August 23 when a plane from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Russia, crashed.

There were no signs of debris as of Friday, according to Portal.
The photo appeared just days after images showed Russian police officers standing guard at Prigozhin’s grave following his funeral in St. Petersburg.
“The farewell to Yevgeny Viktorovich took place in a closed form. Those who want to say goodbye can visit the Porokhovskoye cemetery,” Prigozhin’s press service wrote on Telegram.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose rule Prigozhin challenged about two months ago, was not among those present at Tuesday’s ceremony.
“I knew Prigozhin for a very long time, since the early 1990s. He was a man with a complex destiny and he made serious mistakes in life,” Putin said after Prigozhin’s death. “He achieved the results that he needed both for himself and, when I asked him, for the common cause, as in these last months. He was a talented person, a talented businessman.”

A previously unpublished video of Prigozhin also surfaced yesterday.
The undated video, posted to a Wagner-affiliated Telegram channel, shows Prigozhin looking at the camera in a vehicle and discussing speculation about his death.
“To those who are talking about my liquidation, my personal life and my earnings or whatever, actually everything is fine,” Prigozhin said in the video, according to translations of the independent Moscow Times magazine.

“For everyone who discusses whether I’m alive or not and how I’m doing […] “It’s a weekend in the second half of August 2023. I’m in Africa,” Prigozhin continued.
