A video has been spotted online showing the moment a plane believed to be carrying Wagner boss, Yevgeny Prigozhin crashed and burst into flames in a field in rural Russia.
Shocking footage shows the business jet, thought to be carrying seven passengers and three pilots, falling through the sky, with a trail of black smoke following behind it.
The plane then crashes into a field in the Bologovsky district in the Tver region, 60 miles north of Moscow, bursting into a ball of flames.
The move came after months of tension with Russian military commanders over the Ukraine conflict.
The stand-off was settled by a deal that allowed Wagner troops to move to Belarus or join the Russian army.
