#BreakingNews Military Rebellion in Vladimir Putin's Russia by Wagner Group Led by Yevgeny Prigozhin - Please Pray for Peace!

Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of Russia's private militia, known as the Wagner group, has turned, ordering his men to wage war against the top leaders of the Russian Defense Ministry. The first convoys of the company returned from Ukraine in the direction of Rostov, Russia, where they claim to have taken control of a military airport of other strategic sites, while in Moscow the start of anti-terrorist operations have been declared for fear of Wagnerites' actions in the capital or of armed dissident groups who intend to take advantage of the chaos to attack the palaces of power.
UPDATEWagner group announces it is halting its rebellion or "coup" and there are claims of a deal with Belarus.

Prigozhin insists: "An enormous amount of territory is lost, soldiers are killed in numbers three, four times higher than those in the documents shown by military leaders", he said confirming what Kiev claims about the real Russian losses.
Russia and Prigozhin have jumped to the top of the trending topics. 
Vatican News writes, while Wagner leader Prigozhin so far directed his anger against the defense minister and other military leaders, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, warned this could have severe implications for Russian President Putin. Taylor, who was in Ukraine last month, says the Wagner boss will unlikely succeed. But he cautioned that the Russian infighting could help Ukraine in its fight to defeat Russia’s invasion. Taylor suggested that if Russians are worried about their chain of command, the Russian forces fighting against Ukrainians could, in his words, “be distracted and may even run.”
There are possible economic repercussions of a possible unstable situation, in an environment already severely weakened by the conflict in Ukraine and Western sanctions.
"There is an optimistic scenario that I don't believe much in," he had said on May 25, "that Europe and America will tire of the Ukrainian conflict and China will bring everyone to the negotiating table. We would agree that everything we have already conquered is ours, and everything else is not ours."
It is no coincidence that one of the first phone calls Putin made this morning was to Kazakhstan's President Kassym-Jomart Tokaev, the most reticent ally in recent times in the former Soviet area, who has long been trying to deal with Moscow, Beijing, and the West.

A speech to the nation by Vladimir Putin is expected in the morning, after the news is interpreted throughout Russia as an attempted coup. Some television channels interrupted broadcasts during the night to report on ongoing "anti-terrorist" activities. At the moment Prigozhin's words do not seem to be directed personally against the Russian president, who however is indicated as a victim of the deception hatched by the military leaders who pushed for war in Ukraine without there being any plausible reason to attack Kiev.

“We are inside the army headquarters, it is 7:30 am: military sites in Rostov, including an airport, are under our control,” Prigozhin said, in a video on Telegram. He had earlier claimed that Wagner's forces entered Russia from the Ukrainian front, and has vowed to overthrow Russia's military leadership, adding that he and thousands of his fighters are "ready to die." The Russian military headquarters in Rostov-on-Don is a key logistical base for the offensive into Ukraine.
Yesterday evening Prigozhin threatened to take all necessary measures to overthrow the Russian military leadership, arguing that his troops are ready to march on Moscow if Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of Staff General Valery Gerasimov do not they will agree to meet him. "We have arrived here, we want to see the Chief of Staff and Shoigu. If they don't come, we will blockade the city of Rostov and head towards Moscow," he threatened. Prigozhin himself later claimed that Gerasimov fled.
Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement addressed to the Wagner Group mercenary fighters that they were "deceived and dragged into a criminal adventure" by their boss. In a statement published on Telegram, the ministry urged fighters of the group to contact the police to turn themselves in, in exchange for a pass. But until now there have been no defections within the Wagner group, also known for its great strength.

Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said that "everything is just beginning in Russia. The rift within the elites is evident. This time, pretending everything is resolved won't work."
