Russia will emerge ‘stronger’ following attempted Wagner mutiny, says minister – BBC News

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said the nation would emerge “stronger” than before, following an attempted Wagner rebellion.

Russia’s notorious mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, of the Wagner group, staged an apparent insurrection, sending an armoured convoy towards Moscow.

However, by the end of the day, Prigozhin had called the whole thing off and ordered his men back to base.

After the failed mutiny, the Russian authorities said Wagner would be disarmed but its members would escape prosecution. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military could either join the Russian army, go home or go to Belarus.
