Putin attempted to replace Prigozhin as Wagner’s chief after the mutiny
Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted, in an interview with the Russian newspaper “Kommersant”, that he tried to replace Yevgeny Prigozhin as commander of the Wagner mercenary army. However, the president said that this attempt failed after Prigozhin himself rejected the offer. After the short-lived insurrection at the end of June, Putin seems to want to drive a wedge between the Wagner fighters and their current leader.
Kiev: the army advanced approximately 1.7 kilometers south (east) south
The Ukrainian military claims that forces in the south and southeast of the country have advanced 1.7 kilometers in a week. This is what Colonel Mykola Urshalovich told reporters.
Orshalovic says that the troops have now moved near the occupied city of Melitopol. The colonel says it is a difficult area to advance because there are many mines and the Ukrainian forces are under constant fire from the Russians. With the help of tanks, the Ukrainians were able to occupy a piece of land. The colonel says that Ukrainian forces are also preparing for an offensive near Avdiivka in the Donetsk region.
