During an episode of "The Evening With Vladimir Solovyov" on the Russia-1 TV channel, he showcased clips where Carlson stated that the U.S. was gearing up for war with Russia. The former Fox News host predicted a loss for Washington.
"Who says that? A dead man walking," Solovyov remarked. "He sincerely believes that the next step after the accusations and the declaration of impeachment will be an assassination of Trump. But this man, who is currently the most popular English-speaking journalist, signed his own death warrant."
The propagandist cited Carlson's insistence on securing an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin as the main reason for his prediction. He then warned about the dire consequences of such an action.
"I can't rule out that in the near future as he is leaving Europe, there will either be an air crash or something will happen to the car in which he will be traveling. Or he might eat something that he shouldn't – maybe his heart will suddenly stop. If I were in his place, I would tell no one of my travel routes."
Solovyov's warnings bear an eerie resemblance to the fate of Prigozhin and others who get on the wrong side of Putin. But looking at it another way, his predictions appear to be a "call for awareness" instead of just a "warning" for Carlson's safety.
In June, Prigozhin led a mutiny against Russia's top military officials, which drew criticism from Putin and threatened to push Russia into civil war. Wagner fighters loyal to their leader did not back down and shot down Russian attack helicopters, leading to an unconfirmed number of pilot casualties and infuriating the military.
Since then, Prigozhin became a vocal critic of Russia's actions in Ukraine and has attempted to overthrow Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Russian Armed Forces Chief of the General Staff Gen. Valery Gerasimov. While Prigozhin remained busy with the mutiny, the public was left wondering how he was able to openly criticize the Russian government without facing consequences.
But the Wagner Group founder met his end on the evening of Aug. 23, when he and his associates died in a plane crash north of the Russian capital Moscow. The crash left no survivors, fueling speculation that the group was killed by the Russian government. Unconfirmed reports suggest, however, that he and his associates had met with officials of the Russian Ministry of Defense a day before the tragic plane crash – adding another layer of intrigue to the story.

The Kremlin left no official statement on the incident, but the Telegram channel Grey Zone confirmed their deaths and hailed Prigozhin as a hero and patriot. The channel associated with the Wagner Group alleged that Prigozhin had been killed by unidentified individuals they referred to as "traitors to Russia," and that the plane crash was not an accident.
