Russian mercenary group revolt against Moscow fizzles but exposes vulnerabilities

The greatest challenge to Russian President Vladimir Putin in his more than two decades in power fizzled out after the rebellious mercenary commander who ordered his troops to march on Moscow abruptly reached a deal with the Kremlin to go into exile and sounded the retreat.

Russian general killed?

Russian General and Chief of Staff of the 35th Combined Arms Army, Sergei Goryachev, was reportedly killed Monday in a Ukrainian missile attack, near the Velyka Novosilka front in southwest Donetsk district.
Goryachev began the invasion of Ukraine as commander of the 5th Separate Tank Brigade and was only recently promoted to Chief of Staff of the 35th.
