The USA believes that the version of the downing of the plane of the founder of the private military company "Wagner" Yevgeny Prigozhin's air defense system is inaccurate.

This was reported by the press secretary of the Pentagon, Air Force Brigadier General Pat Ryder.

He commented on the data that Prigozhin's plane was shot down by surface-to-air missiles.

"We consider this information inaccurate,'' Ryder said.

According to a Pentagon spokesman, the U.S. still continue to assess the situation and there is no additional information about the causes of the plane crash yet.

"Obviously, we know that the group "wagner" many tentacles, some military, some criminal in Africa. I don't think anyone will discount the danger of this group or its remnants,” the brigadier general emphasized. He noted that the US will continue to monitor the actions of the “Wagnerians”. in Africa.
