Minsk, June 27 – Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday at the ceremony of introducing writers to senior officers that the Belarusian emigrant opposition is disappointed with the outcome of negotiations with Wagner PMC chief Yevgeny Prigozhin.
On Saturday night in Rostov-on-Don, the headquarters of the Southern Military District was captured by the Wagner PMC. This happened against the background of Yevgeny Prigozhin’s statements about allegations of missile and bomb attacks by the Russian Armed Forces on the camps of the Wagner PMC – this was denied by the Ministry of Defense and the FSB. A criminal case was opened against Prigozhin for organizing an armed rebellion. Russian President Vladimir Putin described the rebels’ actions as a criminal adventure, a stab in the back for Russia and a betrayal that led to exorbitant ambitions and personal interests.
