The last, “life style” photos of the infamous Wagner boss have come to light on social media Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was killed in a plane crash near Moscow last week.

A few days before his death, with the air of a star, Prigozhin is seen posing for selfies with residents of (presumably) Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic – only one of many African nations where the Wagner Group “operated”. The Russian warlord seems to be enjoying his publicity.

Wagner’s unscrupulous “boss”, known for his cruelty, has left his war gear in his closet, wears plain civilian clothes, and is surrounded by overjoyed locals looking excited to meet the Russian oligarch, have their photo taken, shake hands and hug the infamous figure.

Shortly after meeting and greeting the residents/fans of Bangui, Prigozhin went to Mali, where he once again donned his military uniform and took his gun, speaking in epic tones about the Wagner group’s efforts to “makes the entire continent of Africa happier.”

“We’re working… the temperature is over 50 degrees Celsius, just the way we like it… Wagner makes Russia bigger on all continents and Africa more free”, he argued.

Days later, he is killed in a plane crash, which everyone assumes is retaliation of Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin, after Prigozhin and his mercenaries staged the “one-day coup” a short-lived mutiny against the Russian Ministry of Defense in June. The release of the photos on social media comes after Russian authorities officially confirmed Prigozhin’s death last Saturday. On Tuesday, Moscow announced that Putin does not plan to attend the Wagner chief’s funeral.
