It is our policy not to send fighters from the Russian private military company Wagner to the Ukrainian front.

On June 30, the Russian newspaper Vedomosti reported that the head of the country’s Defense Committee made this statement. The Russian presidential administration also announced that it would dismantle Wagner. Russia has overcome all its problems and is getting stronger,” he said.

The “problems” that Russia is said to have overcome.

On June 23, Wagner founder Prigogine suddenly posted on a social networking site, “We must stop the evil,” and a series of disturbances stemming from the uprising against the Russian military. The Russian military, caught by surprise, called on its soldiers not to respond, but seven military planes were shot down in a clash with Wagner, and more than 10 people are said to have been killed in action. The “Wagner” advanced as far as 200 km south of the capital, Moscow. However, the insurgency suddenly came to a halt.

President Vladimir Putin’s face was disgraced.

President Putin, who had remained silent, bitterly denounced the rebellion as ‘treachery,’ and was ready to put it down. President Lukashenko of Belarus, an ally, advised Prigozhin by phone. You will be crushed like a bug. Think about it,” he is said to have urged Prigozhin to change his mind.

Prigozhin accepted Lukashenko’s persuasion and announced his withdrawal from the country on the 24th, the day after the uprising. It is believed that he has effectively “defected” to Belarus, but his whereabouts are unknown. He has disgraced President Vladimir Putin with his sudden uprising, and he will not get away with it.

Putin has managed to suppress Prigogine’s rebellion and seems to have “conquered all problems,” as the authorities have trumpeted. However, the policy of dismantling “Wagner” and deciding not to send it to the Ukrainian front will lead the Russian military to a catastrophic end. Itsuro Nakamura, a professor emeritus at Tsukuba University and an expert on the situation in Russia, explains.

He says, “In the battle with Ukraine, it was the ‘Wagner’ that was most successful. One of the reasons for this is the state-of-the-art weapons they had. Wagner” is not a regular army. The Russian authorities have not officially acknowledged their existence. For this reason, they can do whatever they want, including appointing convicts who have committed serious crimes, such as murder and rape.

The same can be said about weapons. As Mr. Prigogine has stated publicly, “Wagner” has been buying up the latest US-made weapons in Ukraine. Buying weapons from the enemy is unthinkable for the regular military, but the civilian Wagner was able to do it. The dismantling of “Wagner” would also mean the loss of an elite unit equipped with the latest weapons. The Russian regular army, which has a lot of outdated equipment, may be destroyed by the Ukrainian army in the future, with tragic consequences.”

If Wagner is allowed to survive, its prestige will be severely damaged, and if it is dismantled, it will be destroyed on the Ukrainian front. The “Prigogine Revolt” presented President Putin with a major dilemma.
