Yevgeny Prigozhin publishes a new audio message

Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Wagner Group, has released a new audio message more than a week after his mercenary group fell out with the Russian government.

In a Telegram post on MondayPrigozhin expressed gratitude to those who supported him and his group in the attempted rebellion against the Kremlin.

“I want you to understand that our ‘March of Justice’ was aimed at fighting traitors and mobilizing our society,” Prigozhin said in his audio message. “In the near future, I am sure you will see our next victories at the front. Thanks guys!”

Prigozhin called for an armed rebellion late last month to oust Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and also challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin’s justification. the country’s ongoing war with neighboring Ukraine.

Prigozhin eventually ordered his private army to halt his advance after reaching an agreement in which Russia would drop its charges against him for leading an armed rebellion and move into Belarus.

In a Telegram post last weekPrigozhin said he ordered his group to halt their advance to prevent a civil war on Russian soil and denied suggestions he was trying to stage a coup.

The Belarusian president, Alexander Lukashenko, WHO negotiated the deal between the two sides, he said he convinced Putin not to “eliminate” the Wagner Group.

“The most dangerous thing, as I saw it, was not the situation itself, but its possible ramifications. That was the most dangerous part of it,” Lukashenko said in a statement Tuesday. “I also realized that a difficult decision was made … to eliminate those involved.”

“I suggested that Putin should not rush to do it. I suggested that he talk to Prigozhin, his commanders,” he added.
