Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is said to have ordered the killing of Wagner mercenary company leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, while an amnesty may be granted to his fighters, the independent Russian website Important Stories (iStories) said on June 24, citing a source.

The publication’s source, said to be close to Russia’s General Staff, claims that Putin “wants to avoid clashes” with the Wagnerites in Moscow and ordered the security forces to eliminate Prigozhin only. According to the source, the Russian dictator’s plan is to divide the Wagner Group’s key members from Prigozhin, promising them an amnesty.

“The Russian Federation’s army has no serious forces that could block Prigozhin’s advance towards Moscow. Now a major grouping is being formed from all units not employed at the front: the Chechen (Kadyrov) formations, the Russian National Guard, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the FSB,” iStories’ source claims.
