The Russian president will make a televised speech on Monday evening, Russian state television reported, citing Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov. Beside him, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko will also speak on Monday evening.
On Saturday, as Wagner’s mercenaries marched toward Moscow, Vladimir Putin gave his last public speech. At the time, he promised that the leaders of the armed uprising would be punished, but in the evening they promised that the charges against Yevgeny Prigozhin would be dropped if he withdrew his army. On Monday, Prigogine said they did not want to overthrow the government, they only wanted to prevent Wagner’s dissolution and hold the military leadership accountable for mistakes.
As a result, the mercenary army left Rostov, which they had occupied on Saturday night, but on Monday it turned out that this practice had not been formally stopped. The deal that brought peace was brokered by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. According to Medusa’s sources, Putin was unreachable during the crisis. It was even spread that he had left Moscow.Toss)
