Putin said Russia was safe in his first appearance since the end of the short-lived rebellion by Wagner Group forces.
Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the nation Monday night, thanking citizens for their unity and thanking some rebellious mercenaries for avoiding "bloodshed."
The speech was Putin's first appearance since the abrupt end of the rebellion by private military outfit Wagner Group, which is headed by Yevgeny Prigozhin. Putin said he'd taken steps to protect Russia and the population from the rebellion, which ended less than a day after it began late on Friday.
Putin said members of Russia's Air Force died in the rebellion. Wagner claimed to have shot down several aircraft during its march northward on the weekend.
On Monday Putin blamed Russia's "enemies" for the rebellion. He said Wagner's soldiers were loyal to Russia, but had been "used blindly, forced to turn on their comrades with whom they fought shoulder to shoulder."
On Sunday Putin had promised to punish those who had orchestrated the revolt; on Monday he blamed Prigozhin for the rebellion.
In his speech, Putin gave Wagner's fighters the choice to either sign on with Russia's army, return to their families or leave the country for Belarus.
The Kremlin said Prigozhin and his forces had received amnesty, and that Prigozhin had moved to Belarus. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko reportedly negotiated the immediate agreement that halted the rebellion.
It was not immediately clear where Prigozhin was on Monday; even following his address earlier in the day when he said the rebellion hadn't targeted the Russian state.
"We started our march because of an injustice," he said in the message.
He said the revolt was a response to an attack on his forces, allegedly by the Russian military, that killed roughly 30 Wagner fighters.
A new video emerged, showing how the battle is increasingly reaching all the way to Vladimir Putin’s doorstep.
The images suggest that dozens of tents were erected within the past two weeks at a former military base 142 miles north of the Ukrainian border.
Following Wagner leader's relocation to Belarus, neighboring Poland has said it's tightening border security and asking for help from the E.U.
