Belarus says Russian mercenary boss Prigozhin has agreed to de-escalate situation

On Saturday, the office of Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko announced that he had reached an agreement with rebellious Russian mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin to reduce tensions. The official Telegram channel of the Belarusian presidency reported that Prigozhin had consented to cease the further movement of Wagner fighters across Russia. Prigozhin later stated that he had instructed his fighters, who were advancing on Moscow in a convoy, to turn back and return to their bases to avoid violence. The Kremlin subsequently confirmed that a deal had been made, and that Prigozhin would have all charges against him dismissed and relocate to Belarus. The Belarusian statement stated that “the president of Belarus, having further clarified the situation through his own available channels, held talks with the head of the Wagner PMC (private military company), Yevgeny Prigozhin, in coordination with the President of Russia.” The talks lasted for an entire day, and as a result, they reached an agreement on the inadmissibility of unleashing a bloodbath on the territory of Russia. Yevgeny Prigozhin accepted the offer of President Alexander Lukashenko to stop the movement of Wagner’s armed men on Russian territory and to take further steps to de-escalate tensions.
