Russia Rebellion: Putin is losing grip on power- and he can’t make Prigozhin a martyr

It is over two weeks since Yevgeny Prigozhin and his Wagner mercenaries marched on Moscow. This apparent rebellion represented the most significant challenge to President Putin’s two decades in power.

The Kremlin has confirmed President Putin met Wagner Chief Yevgeny Prigozhin days after his mercenary group staged its rebellion.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wagner commanders told Putin they would continue to fight alongside Russian forces.

Military analyst Sean Bell has told Sky News that Putin “does not want to make a martyr of Prigozhin” and needs the “continued support and loyalty” of his mercenary force.
