Putin’s Crisis on SBS – It’s been described as the most serious threat to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s leadership in years: the armed rebellion on June 23, 2023 led by the Russian mercenary Wagner Group and its leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin.
Prigozhin and his troops ultimately stood down, but the mutiny raised new questions about whether Putin’s grip on power may be slipping amid discontent around his troubled war on Ukraine.
Now, this investigation explores how the long-serving Russian leader reached this moment of uncertainty and what it could portend for the country, the region and the world.
