The mutinous PMC is returning to its field camps, its leader Evgeny Prigozhin has announced.

The Wagner Group private military company (PMC) is returning to its “field camps,” its leader Evgeny Prigozhin announced late on Friday. His units staged a mutiny overnight, seizing control of multiple military and administrative sites in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don, as well as launching an advance towards Moscow.

The insurrection had reached the brink of major bloodshed, Prigozhin said, announcing that Wagner’s advancing columns will return to their camps “according to plan.”

“They wanted to disband PMC Wagner. On June 23, we went on a March of Justice in a day. We advanced on Moscow just 200km short, and during this time we did not shed a single drop of the blood of our fighters,” he claimed.

During the mutiny, however, the private military outfit reportedly downed multiple aircraft and repeatedly skirmished with Russian forces.

The announcement comes shortly after the press service of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko announced he had held successful negotiations with Prigozhin. The talks were held in coordination with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Minsk.

“Evgeny Prigozhin accepted the proposal of President Alexander Lukashenko to stop the movement of the armed men of Wagner in Russia and to take further steps to de-escalate tension,” a Belarusian presidency statement declared. It added that Prigozhin had been offered “an advantageous and acceptable option for resolving the situation, with security guarantees for the Wagner PMC fighters.”

The Wagner commander himself, however, has not mentioned the talks with Lukashenko in his latest statements.

  3. If it wasn’t for international media, not including this outlet, I wouldn’t have a clue trying to keep up to date with what’s going on if I was to rely on New Zealand press. Just total bill shit coming out on the news about Wagner. I also tend to find out what’s happening in New Zealand from foreign sources. than I can here.
    Seriously we have the most piss poor media in the world.

    • What can you expect from media whores and presstiutes PAID i.e. BRIBED by what is called government?
      What I wonder about is this: what do these creatures think will happen, when their whole ‘enterprise’ ( and it IS a profit-orientated enterprise) will falter?
      Being the vacant, vile, vapid, vain things they are, they have no clue about history.

      Again, YOU are your own journalist, especially when it comes to war information. Remember, the first casualty in war is the truth.
      On a side note: Kudos to ‘Daily Telegraph New Zealand’!
      This is the only publication I know that invites uncensored comments. Do you know any other?

  4. No DTNZ is the best.
