Yevgeny Prigozhin Refused Security Assistance Before Dying

Allegedly, Belarus offered security assistance to Yevgeny Prigozhin following his aborted march to Vladimir Putin's office earlier this year.

Prigozhin didn't take it.

He's dead now.

Perhaps he should have accepted the offer.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that he had told Prigozhin to watch his back after the latter's brief mutiny against the Russian military.

"I told him: ‘Yevgeny, do you understand that you will doom your people and will perish yourself?'," the president said.

"To hell with it – I will die," Prigozhin reportedly responded, saying:

I will die then, damn it! To hell with it, let me be killed!

Well, he got his wish.

"Yevgeny, I will send you a rope and a piece of soap right now," the president of Belarus reportedly offered.

"No, no, no. I don't want it this way. I will die a hero," Prigozhin responded.

"If you are afraid of something, I will talk to President Putin, and we will extract you to Belarus. We guarantee full security to you in Belarus," the president of Belarus told Prigozhin.

Like all of the other offers, Prigozhin denied that one as well.

"Credit where credit is due, Yevgeny Prigozhin has never asked me to separately pay attention to security matters," Lukashenko said.

While some people think that Prigozhin should have taken the offers from Lukashenko, others have a slightly grimmer outlook on the whole scenario.

There are many people out there who feel as if Prigozhin's fate was sealed as soon as he made his first move against Putin.

Even if Prigozhin never actually took over, he absolutely embarrassed Putin by getting that close in the first place.

To many people, it was very clear from the beginning that Putin wasn't the type of guy who would ever let something like that slide, no matter who was protecting Prigozhin.
