The Rapture Report – Wagner chief moving to Belarus after Lukashenko-brokered deal to halt march on Moscow
By Chris Schang

In a sign of the increasing tensions within Russia, the leader of the Wagner Group of mercenaries Veygeny Prigozhin, has called on his men to advance on Moscow to protest the poor treatment of the armed group that was fighting for Russia in Ukraine.

The Wagner Group had made many complaints against Moscow for failing to properly provide ammunition on the battlefield, attacking the Wagner Group soldiers on the battlefield, and many other things that had upset Mr. Prigozhin. The situation threatened to provoke an armed conflict between the Russian government and the mercenary group.

A FoxNews article reported:

Wagner chief Veygeny Prigozhin is moving to Belarus under a deal brokered by President Alexander Lukashenko to halt the mercenary group’s march on Moscow, according to an announcement from the Kremlin.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Lukashenko had offered to mediate, with an agreement from Russian President Vladimir Putin, because he had known Prigozhin personally for around 20 years.

The announcement came after Prigozhin said he had ordered Wagner troops to turn around, defusing a dramatically escalating crisis.

To be honest, things were not looking good for Veygency Prigozhin on Saturday when he called on his armed group to head to Moscow. Some had speculated that it was a coup against Putin and that it might succeed. Others speculated that it was the end of Prigozhin. One thing was sure and that this was a very interesting situation that threatened to lead to a crisis.

The FoxNews article went on to further report:

Early Saturday, Wagner troops appeared to control the military headquarters in Rostov-on-Don, a city 660 miles south of Moscow that runs Russian operations in Ukraine. Wagner troops and equipment also were in Lipetsk province, about 360 kilometers south of Moscow, where authorities were “taking all necessary measures to ensure the safety of the population,” said regional Gov. Igor Artamonov, via Telegram.

Later Saturday, Prigozhin announced that while his men were just 120 miles from Moscow, he decided to turn them back to avoid “shedding Russian blood.”

The announcement followed a statement from the office of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko saying he spent most of Saturday negotiating a deal between Prigozhin and Putin, The Wall Street Journal reported. Prigozhin agreed to halt the advance in a proposed settlement including security guarantees for Wagner troops, Lukashenko’s office said, without elaborating.

Putin for his part had labeled the “march for justice” a betrayal and treason of Russia. While a crisis was averted for the moment as Russian expert also made the following comments:

Western analysts have cautioned that the crisis in Russia is far from over. Dr. Ivana Stradner, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who has been studying the unfolding situation closely, told Fox News Digital that “whoever believes this will end soon is sorely mistaken.”

“Never trust Putin. He loathes disloyalty more than anything else and [Prighozin] moving to Belarus won’t guarantee that he will not also experience windows or tea,” Stradner added, referring to Russian dissidents’ propensity for being poisoned or mysteriously falling out of windows.

Finally, former President Trump warned people to not to try to oust Putin as the next Russian leader could be far worse. I have read articles in the past that talked about some of the potential replacements for Putin and they were not good people. There’s an old saying that it is better to deal with the devil you know, than the one you don’t know. That could be very true here in this situation with Russia and the Wagner Group. I think people would do well to listen to President Trump.

Another FoxNews article reported the comments from President Trump:

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday warned against the possible ouster of Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that the successor to the Russian strongman could be “far worse.”

“A big mess in Russia, but be careful what you wish for. Next in may be far worse!” he said on Truth Social.

Trump spoke amid an ongoing situation in Russia in which the Wagner private Russian military force was marching to Moscow in what appeared to be a significant challenge to Putin’s leadership, 16 months into the war against Ukraine. The column of paramilitary fighters later announced that it would turn around to avoid bloodshed.

I think we will need to watch and see what happens with Prighozin. I tend to think Prighozin has escaped a pretty certain end here for moment, but I also believe that Putin has a long memory and I would not be surprised to hear later that something happened to the Wagner Group leader. I think it is pretty certain that Proghozin has a pretty big target on his back at the moment.

How this will play out for Russia remains to be seen. We need to keep watching, especially as things heat up in Israel regarding Iran’s nuclear developments.

Keep looking up!
It appears the Wagner group is 10,000 paid mercenaries and 40,000 released criminals that you definitely want on the front line. It's actually a brilliant plan it seems that Putin deemed this group the expendables. Now that wagner group heading to Belarus could a possible false flag land on their heads tactical nuke. Putins troubles would be gone
And nato would get the blame. Of course, this is just speculation.
