As a self-media creator, I would like to relay to you President Putin's latest important speech, in which he made an informed decision about the coup that took place. Not only that, but Putin also offered a series of options to Wagner's mercenaries, an army that had been implicated in Prigogin's rebellion. These options will have a profound impact on their future and will also have an important impact on the battlefield in Ukraine.
In his speech, Putin expressed his dissatisfaction with the coup and emphasized the consequences of the coup. He mentioned three options for the Wagner mercenaries to choose from. The first option is to remain in service, but only if they join the regular army of Russia and sign a cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Defense. This marked the need to integrate into the regular army system and no longer exist as an independent group.
The second option is to go home, but for mercenaries this may not be easy. They may need to look for work upon their return home and may choose to work as security guards or bodyguards, although there are still opportunities for those jobs in some parts of Russia.
The third option is to go to Belarus, where their leader Prigogin has traveled, and Putin promised to abide by their choice. This gives them another prospect.
Whichever option they choose, it marks the cease to exist at the Wagner group, and the army that once performed brilliantly in the battle of Bakhmut will no longer exist. This will have important implications for both the Russian and Ukrainian battlefields.
This coup has not only had a political impact, but also could have a negative impact on the morale of the Russian army. The event amounted to a military mutiny that could affect the morale of other armies and unease them in future battles. In addition, now that the Russian army is still on the defensive, we will closely monitor how Ukraine attacks, which will be the next focus of our attention.
