The Russian special services warned Vladimir Putin about the preparation of a rebellion by Prigozhin, the curator of Wagner PMC, at least 3-4 days before it began.
The Washington Post writes about this, citing sources.
As a result, the security of strategic sites was increased, including the Kremlin, where more weapons were issued, but other actions, such as the arrest of the organizers, were not taken.
“When this began to happen, paralysis set in at all levels … Alarm and confusion set in. For a long time they did not know how to react,” one of the representatives of the European security service told the publication.
“There was a mess. One can argue about its depth, but there really was no agreement,” a representative of Russian diplomatic circles said.
At the same time, many local officials decided not to try to stop the heavily armed Wagner units, because they could not believe that the rebellion could occur without a certain agreement with the Kremlin.
Recall that earlier the head of the CIA said that the department knew in advance about the preparation of Prigozhin’s rebellion.
