Unless he arrived on a regular flight or by Il-76 with a bucket instead of a toilet.

Various Telegram channels spread insides that Prigozhin is already in Minsk. The Belarusian Hajun can’t confirm this information. However, we can say where his planes, which he usually uses, are.

  • The first, business jet BAe 125-800B (RA-02731), has been in Moscow since June 22.
  • The second, which is his main plane, Embraer Legacy 600 (RA-02795), flew yesterday from St. Petersburg to the south of Russia and returned to St. Petersburg late evening.

Thus, at least we know that Prigozhin didn’t arrive in Belarus by his planes.

That leaves a few other options:

— he arrived on a regular flight to Minsk National Airport (well, he wasn’t seen there); — he arrived by An-124 (then he had to teleport to Ulyanovsk); — he arrived by one of the two Il-76 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces at Machulishchy airfield (at 00:50 or 12:45), but it seems that this is not the level of the cook, and there are no toilets there; — he arrived by car.
