“Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent condolences to the relatives of Yevgeny Prigozhin, who has been listed among those killed in a plane crash Wednesday.

It was Putin’s first public acknowledgment of the crash.

‘I’ve known Prigozhin for a long time, since the early ’90s. He was a man of complicated fate and he made serious mistakes in his life,’ Putin said during a meeting broadcast on Russian television. ‘He was a talented man, a talented businessman.’

‘He worked not only in our country … but also abroad. In Africa in particular,’ Putin added.
