Ukraine: Chaos in Russia works to our advantage

On June 25, Ukraine officials stated that the turmoil in Russia is advantageous for Kyiv, but it remains to be seen if President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and his army can take advantage of the chaos caused by the march of mercenaries towards Moscow. Late on Saturday, Yevgeny Prigozhin, a founder of the Wagner army, announced that he was stopping his “march for justice” on Moscow after a deal that spared him and his mercenaries from facing criminal charges and exiled him to Belarus. Zelenskiy said in his nightly video address that “Today the world saw that the masters of Russia do not control anything. Nothing at all. Just complete chaos,” and urged Ukraine’s allies to send more weapons to Kyiv. The Prigozhin unrest, the biggest internal challenge to President Vladimir Putin in his 23-year rule, has raised global security concerns and led to a frenzy of calls between Washington and its allies to coordinate actions. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Saturday that “Any chaos behind the enemy lines works in our interests.” Putin called Prigozhin’s actions a “blow to Russia,” but there were no immediate signs that his rule was threatened. Ukraine’s military reported on Saturday an offensive near villages ringing Bakhmut, which was taken by Wagner forces in May after months of fighting. Kyiv also claimed the liberation of Krasnohorivka village in Donetsk, but gains were incremental. Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, said on Saturday that there was no immediate withdrawal of Russian forces from the frontline to Moscow. “They … all remain in their places. They continue their resistance,” Ukrainian state media quoted Danilov as saying.
