Vladimir Putin says Wagner mutiny leaders will be ‘brought to justice’

Written by on June 27, 2023

Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the leaders of last weekend’s Wagner mutiny of wanting “to see Russia choked in bloody strife”.
In a short speech full of vitriol, Mr Putin vowed to bring the organisers of the revolt “to justice”. But he called regular Wagner troops “patriots” who would be allowed to join the army, go to Belarus or return home.
He did not directly name Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin, who earlier denied trying to overthrow Mr Putin’s regime.
