The Kremlin denied information about Surovikin's awareness of the rebellion

Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov commented on the negative publications about the Deputy Commander of the Joint Group of Troops (Forces), General of the Army Sergei Surovikin, in light of the Wagner PMC mutiny. At the briefing, he called them speculation and gossip, of which there will be many more.

Now around these events there will be many different speculations, gossip and so on. I think this is one of those examples.

- said Sands.

So he reacted to the information that General Surovikin knew about the plans of businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin to start a rebellion.

Peskov added that at present the Russian authorities do not have a clear position on the issue of allowing private military companies in the country.

So far, there is no clear position on this matter. There is some discussion here, it will continue

— said the representative of the Kremlin.

So he answered the question of whether it is planned to allow the creation of PMCs in the Russian Federation in the future after the rebellion of the “Wagnerites”. Peskov stressed that during the days of the Wagner rebellion, the army and the people were together with President Vladimir Putin.

He added that the state had nothing to do with Wagner's business in Africa. At the same time, Russia will continue military cooperation with the Central African Republic. Military advisers will remain there to work in the required number.

Earlier, adviser to the President of the Central African Republic, Faustin Arcange Touadera, Fidel Guandjika, said that the authorities of the republic in the event of the departure of Wagner will accept any other security team that the Russian leadership will send to the country. According to him, if Moscow decides to recall the Wagner PMC and send Beethovens or Mozarts to Africa, they will work in the Central African Republic.

    this Kremlin broadcaster, as always, carries a blizzard, I remember broadcasting about some fateful speech by the president, and he complained about the rebels and announced the allocation of 262 billion rubles through the Ministry of Defense. And when will this circus end?

    Declaring that the responsible persons did not know about the preparation of the rebellion, Peskov exposes these very persons .... very short-sighted.
    It turns out that Wagner's "curator" from the Moscow Region had no idea at all about what was happening there.
    Sorry, but this is .... incompetent. Which, apparently, now they will begin to attribute to Bortnikov and Naryshkin and others.

    Here's my word of honor - it would be better to say that "there were suspicions", but they could not do anything before the first move.
    This, by the way, is very similar to the truth.
    Obviously, just a week ago, an attempt to preventively disarm Wagner or arrest Prigozhin would have caused such a wave ....

    Z. Y. : The fact that something has been known for a long time is obvious.
    This is probably why, back in 2022, it was forbidden to replenish in prisons.

    Now the media are dispersing the topic that General Surovikin has been arrested. Is there any clear information?

    Faustin Arcange Touadéra Fidel Guandjika is more specific than Peskov.
