Many X users started reacting to the newly surfaced videos of Putin speeding back to Moscow. One user tweeted, “The cause of Progozhin’s death is clearly being laid at the door of Putin according to reports from the Wagner Group. A rapidly developing cause for alarm seems to have Moscow on high alert. Very dangerous times ahead for us all !”

“The day Wagner decided to march on Moscow in the middle of a war, Prigozhin, the Jew, became a rebel leader and the most immediate threat to both Putin and Russia as a whole. His days were numbered since he pulled that trick.”, another X user wrote reacting to Prigozhin’s death.
