Putin and Prigozhin

Following Prigozhin’s armed mutiny against the government, Putin accused him of treason and vowed to “neutralise” the uprising and said that anyone who had taken up arms against the Russian military would be punished. Putin praised the Russian people for their unity and offered Wagner fighters the option to move to Belarus or sign a contract with the defense ministry to remain in Russia. These recent events between Putin and Prigozhin have raised many questions about their relationship, the position of Wagner fighters in the conflict and the current state of affairs in Russia.
