US President Joe Biden has reacted to the reports that Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin has died in a plane crash near Moscow, saying that he’s “not surprised”.

“I don’t know for a fact what happened, but I am not surprised,” Biden said. As reporters rushed to ask him follow up questions, he said: “There’s not much that happens in Russia that Putin’s not behind. I don’t know enough to know the answers, I’ve been working out the last hour and a half.”
