President Biden, while speaking cautiously, implied what Trump has refrained from suggesting: that the tragic plane crash involving Prigozhin could have been orchestrated by Putin.

Discussing the plane crash, President Biden remarked, “When this topic came up earlier, I had mentioned the need for caution regarding transportation choices. While I cannot confirm the specifics of what transpired, the incident doesn’t particularly surprise me.”

When probed if he believed Putin was involved, Biden responded, “In Russia, it’s rare for significant events to occur without Putin’s influence. However, I lack comprehensive details to provide a conclusive answer.”

It’s a widely held belief among Putin observers that those who oppose him often face untimely deaths, be it through mysterious falls, poisoning, or plane crashes. President Biden’s lack of surprise might be rooted in the fact that many were astonished that Prigozhin survived as long as he did post his coup attempt.

It’s anticipated that this subject will be addressed in the upcoming Republican debate. However, given past patterns, it’s unlikely that a significant number of Republicans will voice criticism against Putin. Trump’s history of refraining from condemning Putin stands testament to that.

President Biden, in contrast, has shown he isn’t hesitant to indicate potential culpability when it’s due.
