After Prigozhin's rebellion, Britain begins to prepare for Russia's collapse - The Times
UK officials believe that the incomplete coup d'état, initiated by the notorious Yevgeny Prigozhin, is the starting point for the breakup of the Russian Federation into separate sovereign republics. The unrest and confusion in the Kremlin on 24 June showed that the situation within Russia itself is extremely unstable and has no reliable support.
The Times writes about this, citing John Foreman, the former military attaché of the United Kingdom in Moscow. He stressed that no one had any illusions about the successful outcome of the coup.
"Prigozhin's victory is the worst-case scenario. We should not be under the illusion that he is supposedly more liberal and peaceful, because he is a natural fascist," the former attaché said.
Roderick Lyne, former London ambassador to Moscow, also expressed his position. He stressed that the mutiny of the Wagner PMC militants has reduced Putin's chances of remaining the Russian ruler for life, although the threat to his regime seems to have passed.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that the international community, including foreign intelligence agencies, had assessed the degree of humiliation Prigozhin had subjected Putin to with his mutiny. The humiliation of the Russian dictator and his weakness were seen by literally everyone, and this, in turn, revealed new threats.
In addition, the owner of the Wagner PMC provoked an increase in arms supplies to Ukraine from European partners with his "march on Moscow".
