Join Columbia’s Virtual Conversation Regarding The Beginning Of The End For Putin?

June 26, 2023

Days ago, Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner Group—a private military company playing a key role in the conflict in Ukraine now the conversation has comes to Harlem.

Appeared to lead a revolt against Russian President Vladimir Putin in an extraordinary sign of tumult within Russia.

After allegedly occupying the key military hub of Rostov-on-Don, Prigozhin was charged with organizing an armed insurrection.

Twenty-four hours later, in an about-face, it was announced that Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko had brokered a deal that led to the Russian state dropping charges against Prigozhin and Wagner group fighters returning to their training camp; it seems that some Wagner group fighters will be offered the opportunity to sign contracts with Russia’s military.

The situation in Russia, however, remains tenuous, as Putin faces the largest civil-military crisis of his longstanding presidency.

While the immediate crisis may be over, what does this event bode for Putin and Russia’s future, the war in Ukraine, and broader global security?
