What Happened in Russia?

 

Rebellion to Belarus Deal

The leader of Russia’s Wagner mercenary group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, gave orders to his soldiers stationed in Ukraine to advance on Moscow. He described it as a “march for justice” as opposed to a military takeover. Prigozhin claimed that the crisis in Ukraine was founded on untruths and demanded a stop to what he saw as misbehaviour on the part of the Russian military hierarchy. According to sources, he charged Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s defence minister, with directing the concealing of the remains of 2,000 dead Wagner fighters.

In retaliation, Prigozhin was accused of instigating armed revolt by Russia’s federal security service. President Putin has been notified, and the required steps are being taken, the Kremlin spokeswoman stated.

Wagner fighters were urged to end their defiance of the military hierarchy and head back to their bases by General Sergei Surovikin, the Russian army’s deputy commander in the Ukraine conflict. He urged them to stop their activities in a video message that he shared on the social media site Telegram. The enemy, according to Surovikin, was anxiously anticipating a deterioration in Russia’s domestic political climate.

In order to strengthen security, more precautions have been taken at government buildings, transportation hubs, and other significant areas. On Friday night, military vehicles were seen driving through the city’s streets on patrol.
