Russian mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin is buried in private, ending his tumultuous journey

A private burial was held for Yevgeny Prigozhin, ending a tumultuous journey from St. Petersburg street thug to Kremlin-financed mercenary leader, following a suspicious plane crash two months after his brief mutiny that challenged the authority of President Vladimir Putin. Russian media cited unidentified sources as saying Prigozhin was laid to rest Tuesday without any publicity, per his family's wishes. Members of the Russian National Guard were stationed along the fence at the cemetery, steering visitors away after it closed for the day.
