Arestovich: Russians are restoring the manageability of the hierarchy

"They (FSB -ed.) could have taken precautions. I would have taken precautions if I were in their shoes. I would have planted an explosive device on the plane and launched missiles as well. Just to be sure," said Alexey Arestovich during a live broadcast with Yuriy Romanenko while discussing those who might be behind the crash of Yevgeny Prigozhin's plane.

"In this sense, they would have reached an excellent understanding with the military. The FSB doesn't launch missiles from the S-300 or any other air defense system. The military is in charge of that.

But it's clear why the military wouldn't want to deal with Prigozhin. There's a long history between them. For the 10 deceased pilots. They still appeal to justice. They exchanged 10 for 10. There were 10 people on board this plane.

So, it's a collective decision of the Russian authorities. And without Putin's approval, in principle, neither the FSB nor any Ministry of Defense would agree. Everything is clear. They are restoring the manageability of the hierarchy. Notice, there's no Peskov. They say he has been on vacation for the past three weeks. And without any warning. In short, it's such a rich history."
