The Kremlin said on Thursday it is not tracking Wagner mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin, who went to Belarus after a deal brokered by Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to end the coup attempt after last month's rebellion in Russia. The statement came after Lukashenko said Prigozhin had returned to Russia.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that a date for a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lukashenko has not yet been set and details of what will be on the agenda have not yet been confirmed, although the Belarusian leader had earlier said Prigozhin would be discussed.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, chief of the Wagner mercenary group, who led a rebellion last month, traveled to Belarus in a deal brokered by Lukashenko.
But today Lukashenko announced that Prigozhin is in Russia and his troops have returned to their camps.
