President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his evening address on June 24 that the Wagner rebellion had demonstrated "complete chaos" in Russia.

"Today the world saw that Russian leaders don't control anything," he said. "It's complete chaos. Complete absence of any predictability on Russian territory, which is packed with weapons."

Prigozhin said on Telegram that the mercenaries would stop their march on Moscow and withdraw to military camps.

Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko claimed he had held talks with Prigozhin, after which Wagner’s boss announced the mercenaries’ retreat, according to Lukashenko’s press service.

The insurrection case against Prigozhin will be closed, and he will move to Belarus, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on June 24.
