The revolt of the Wagner group against Russian rule
Yevgeny Prigojin, the founder of the private security company Wagner, accused the Russian army of organizing an attack on Wagner and threatened to respond, Wagner fighters left Ukraine and entered the border Rostov region.
Upon this situation, the Federal Security Service (FSB) opened a criminal case on the charge of “armed riot”.
Russian President Vladimir Putin described Wagner’s rebellion as “treason”.
Prigojin announced that they would go to Moscow, and the Kremlin administration had increased security measures in many parts of the country.
It was reported that Yevgeny Prigojin accepted the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko’s proposal to de-escalate tensions in Russia yesterday.
Prigojin announced that they understood the responsibility for the shedding of Russian blood and that they would turn their convoys back and return to the field camps according to plan.
Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov stated that the criminal case against Prigojin would be closed and that the rebel leader would go to Belarus.
