Wagner’s financial sponsor is believed to be Russian businessman, Evgeny Prigozhin, suspected of meddling in the U.S. elections.

This was a joint project with Investigation Control Centre, (TsUR) — one of Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s media projects.

According to the driver who survived the attack, armed attackers emerged from the bush and opened fire on the vehicle, and the passengers died there.

Orkhan Dzhemal’s wife, Irina Gordienko, told The Bell that she identified her husband’s body in a photograph.

The journalists’ trip was related to an investigation of the Wagner private military company, which was really actively involved in Africa.

In exchange, the company would be given access to ¼ of the oil and gas produced on liberated territories.

The Bell’s editorial team would like to express its condolences to the relatives and friends of the journalists who were killed. »
