Kremlin: Situation With Wagner PMC Won't Affect Russia's Military Op in Ukraine

Wagner head Yevgeny Prigozhin ordered a halt to his forces' drive on Moscow and opted for de-escalation on Saturday, accepting a proposal mediated by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

He stressed that Wagner troops engaged in the tensions won't be prosecuted, adding that those wishing to sign a contract with the Russian defense ministry in the future would be able to do so.
Regarding Prigozhin's status, the spokesman noted that the businessman would be allowed to leave the country.

Peskov thanked Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for his mediation in talks with Prigozhin, which were aimed at reaching the "highest goal" of avoiding the conflict.

The presidents agreed on Lukashenko's brokering efforts since the Belarusian leader has personally known Prigozhin for around 20 years, the official stated, also noting that Lukashenko himself had proposed his talks with the Wagner's head.

Peskov stated that thanks to the agreement the situation had been resolved without further losses, with members of the Wagner PMC able to return back to their field camps.

Wagner Crisis

The escalation began on Friday, when Prigozhin claimed that the Defense Ministry targeted Wagner's rear camps, and announced that Wagner forces would go to Moscow to "sort out" what exactly caused said attack.

The MoD refuted such reports, deeming them a provocation, while the authorities the Federal Security Service charged Prigozhin with trying to incite an armed insurrection.

Wagner troops and military equipment traveled from their bases to the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, where they held the military HQ, promising to go to Moscow.

President Vladimir Putin addressed the nation, saying that any discord must be put aside during Russia's ongoing special military operation in Ukraine, as the country's army is fighting against the Kyiv regime.
Following Lukashenko's mediation, Prigozhin agreed to cease the escalation, saying he does not want to "unleash a bloody massacre" in his homeland, and ordered Wagner troops to return to their bases in the Lugansk People's Republic.
