Wagner Group’s Prigozhin back in Russia: Belarus’s Lukashenko

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko dismissed speculation Russian President Vladimir Putin would have Yevgeny Prigozhin killed

Wagner Group’s Yevgeny Prigozhin has returned to Russia with thousands of fighters, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Thursday, dismissing speculation Russian President Vladimir Putin would have the mutineer killed.

Lukashenko helped broker a deal with Prigozhin to end the recent Wagner mutiny, which represented the greatest threat to Putin’s power in his 23 years as president.

As part of that deal, Prigozhin was meant to end the rebellion with his mercenaries and move to Belarus. In exchange, Putin would drop all charges.

Lukashenko said Thursday that Prigozhin may still be in Russia, denying that they may ever actually move to Belarus.

In spite of this, Lukashenko said the deal was upheld and he stood by his offer to host Wagner – a prospect which has alarmed neighbouring NATO countries – and would speak with Putin shortly.

Lukashenko added that the Russian security services likely kept a close eye on him.

While there had been speculation Putin may have wanted to “wipe out” Prigozhin, Lukashenko said that while some within the Kremlin may have wished to do so, Lukashenko said that this risked igniting a civil war.

“If you think Putin is so malicious and vindictive that he will ‘wipe him out’ tomorrow – to say it in Russian – no, this will not happen,” Lukashenko said.

“The fighters of the Wagner group are at their camps – their permanent camps – those where they have been located since they left the front.”

Wagner’s main camp is in southern Russia, at Molkino near Krasnodar.

Prigozhin said the mutiny was aimed at Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov, not at toppling Putin.

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
