“(nbc) Wagner mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin said saturday he had ordered his forces to turn back and return to their bases, seemingly abandoning an armed rebellion that had them heading toward moscow. In a post on telegram, Prigozhin said the move was done to avoid bloodshed.

tass, a media outlet run by russia’s government, reported the criminal case against Prigozhin would be dropped. in a telegram post, the news agency reported that Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, also said Prigozhin would ‘go to Belarus’ and that Wagner soldiers would not be prosecuted.

“Russian President Vladimir Putin had accused mercenary Prigozhin of ‘treason’ and vowed to crush the growing [?] armed rebellion.

“Prigozhin, head of the Wagner mercenary group and once a confidant of the russian leader, claimed that he and his fighters had taken rostov-on-don, where the russian military headquarters overseeing the war in the ukraine is based. Prigozhin on friday accused russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu of ordering a rocket strike on Wagner’s camps in the ukraine, and vowed to punish ‘those who destroyed our lads.’”

GRA: And that, is that.

No more Wagner PMC perhaps. They will be absorbed into the Russian army? These guys too all over Africa and the Middle East. Go home maybe not a good option?
