Russia alert, the danger of civil war
Russia has been alerted after the rebellion of the Wagner Group. Along with the Ministry of Defense, the security of the Kremlin has also been increased. The danger of civil war has arisen in Russia. Due to this, the tension of Russian President Vladimir Putin has also increased. Although Putin has said that he will not allow civil war in Russia, what will happen next, nothing can be said from now. Wagner Group is also well aware of many plans of the Russian leadership and the army. There is no dearth of supporters in Prigozhin’s Russia. In such a situation, the situation in Russia may worsen soon.
Putin will have to exert full force to prevent the situation from worsening due to the rebellion of the Wagner Group in Russia. Prigozhin has long been close to Putin. In such a situation, Putin can try to work things out peacefully. But since the Wagner Group has started infiltrating the city of Rostov-on-Don and reportedly blew up a military helicopter, it seems that the best way to control the situation is to talk peacefully. Time has passed.
In such a situation, Putin will have to send a large contingent of his army to stop the Wagner Group and try to control the situation.
