Putin met with the leader of the Wagner Group after the rebellion


The meeting, which was also attended by all the commanders of the mercenary company, lasted for three hours, said the spokesman for the Russian Presidency, Dmitri Peskov, at his daily press conference.

“The meeting took place in the Kremlin and lasted for almost three hours,” Peskov said, adding that the meeting had 35 participants.

During it, Putin “gave his assessment of the performance of the company (Wagner Group) at the front in the framework of the special military operation and also of the events of June 24″, alluding to the mutiny led by Prigozhin, who he aborted it when his soldiers were about 200 kilometers from Moscow.

Putin listened to “the commanders’ explanations” and offered them employment options after the rebellion, according to the Kremlin.

“The commanders themselves put forward their version of what happened and stressed that they were staunch supporters and soldiers of the head of state and the commander-in-chief,” Peskov added.

Wagner’s leaders “also said that they were ready to continue fighting for the fatherland.”

“That’s all we can say about that meeting,” he concluded.
