I feel that this is big. The head of Wagner is supposed to be a Putin henchman. If heís lost him, which he pretty clearly has, Putin will panic regarding who he can trust, if he wasnít before this happened. I feel the clock is ticking

This is definitely big. Very rare that anyone openly challenges Vlad, let alone someone who is a credible military threat.

Neither will use nukes. Itís not an option

Putin, as powerful as he is, canít just press a button and launch a nuclear weapon. There are multiple channels that he would have to go through, if he even dared to try, and at some point heíd meet defining resistance 
I am not suggesting a major nuclear attack is likely or even possible. Battlefield nuclear weapons are not controlled by the various nuclear weapon conventions that exist.

I hear you. I just donít believe anyone beyond Putin in the chain of command would authorise it even if the order came from Vlad himself. Somebody else would have to actually launch it and I donít think theyíd acquiesce

I do wonder if this is a bit of a ruse cooked up by two lunatics.

The hot dog salesman has stayed well clear of criticising mad Vlad so wonder if they are trying to expose anyone who might stand against Putin.

Alternatively they may be trying to make Putin look strong, quashing an uprising, especially if the war in Ukraine is going badly.

It would be nice to think that this could be the end of Vlad, but the worry is that if it is who is going to be next?

I donít think so. However this plays out, Vlad loses. If he quashes this he still looks weak by virtue of the fact it happened at all

Not sure G4S tend to recruit by offering violent prisoners clemency in return for 12 months service. Although they'd probably try it if they were allowed.

Normally G4S just let them out

Getting back on topic.

What we have now is Putin still in charge, Prigozhin now in Belarus and all is forgiven able to organise an assault from there.

Chechen soldiers on the Ukraine border, and they are trouble.

Itís just three mates who have come up with a plan.

Haha nope.... this quote made me smile

At the same time, Grey Zone reported that a second business jet owned by Prigozhin had landed safely in the Moscow region...

What's the chances Prigozhin wasn't even on the crashed jet and he spent the rest of the day having afternoon tea in Moscow with Putin  Cheesy

I'd imagine security services are asking the same questions.

He did like to use looky likey. And I'm sure Russia can be trusted to provide DNA evidence, soapy tit wank.

Given it's the greyzone - I'd imagine very little chance
