Prigozhin of Wagner's mutiny or coup 政變 failed?

Saturday has no stock market, so I woke up late on 6/24/2023. When I turned on my internet to read news. I was stunned by Yevgeny Prigozhin lead Wagner group turned around from Ukraine to Russia straight to Moscow. I was almost in shock when I read the news about the mercenary Wagner soldiers (prisoners) drove troop of tanks without any difficulty, not a bullet fired, not any bomb threw, they were approaching to Moscow and only 2 hours more they could arrive Kremlin and Putin had to flee out of Kremlin. I thought the war between Russia and Ukraine will be over and by Monday 6/26/2023 the stock market will soar for this big news. I went out to have lunch.

By the time I returned home and turned my computer on. What was happened during I was out? Prigozhin agreed that if Vladimir Putin fired Russia Minister Sergei Shoigu and another guy, Prigozhin is willing to go to Byelorussia 白俄羅斯共和國. I don't understand why Prigozhin trust Putin so much. What if after a while when everything settled down, Putin won't poison him or send an assassin to murder Prigozhin??? If I were Prigozhin, I wouldn't trust Putin.

Prigozhin is a Russian oligarch and mercenary chief, and was a close confidant of Russian president Vladimir Putin until he launched an alleged coup in June 2023. Prigozhin is sometimes called "Putin's chef", as he owns restaurants and catering companies that provide services for the Kremlin.

Honesty is the best policy.

I don't know Russian's language but only know English and Mandarin and Taiwanese. It is difficult for me to understand Russia.

In this "flash coup" event, there are some persons involved.

1. Yevgeny Prigozhin leader of Wagner group started this "flash coup". First, Prigozhin used very nasty words complained about Russia Minister Sergei Shoigu didn't give Wagner group enough weapon to fight in Ukraine and lots of his mercenary Wagner soldiers sacrificed their live in the battle field in Ukraine.

2. Russia president, Vladimir Putin said he gave 1 billion Ruble to Wagner group and Putin is very mad about Prigozhin started this "Rebellion" action.

3. Russia Minister Sergei Shoigu and Army General Valery Gerasimov who have been scolded nasty words by Prigozhin that Russia government didn't provide sufficient weapon for Wagner Group.

4. Belarus president, Aleksandr Lukashenko who acted as mediator or negotiator in between Putin and Prigozhin conflict. Prigozhin agreed to go to Belarus, and all Wagner 8,000+ soldiers also go to Belarus.

5. Sergey Vladimirovich Surovikin is a Russian army general serving as Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces. Surovikin has been arrested by Russia government because he knew about Prigozhin's mutiny 2 days earlier but didn't report or warning to Putin.

6. CCP leader, Xi Jing-ping. In the beginning of this flash mutiny, CCP was silent until few days later. I think Xi got scared or worried about CCP military force might start "mutiny" or coup in China. When you see those CCP military soldiers carry weapon or guns on TV or video, you didn't know there are no bullets or ammunition inside the guns. In other words, guns and bullets are separated. If Xi decides to attack Taiwan, CCP need to distribute bullets to soldiers to their guns. It is difficult to predict what will CCP soldiers will turn to CCP government or not when they got bullets in their guns??? Consider the China's weak economy, high unemployment rate (CCP official said 20.8% but some country predicts 58% unemployment rate in China) and foreigner investor companies moved out of China, Renminbi 人民币 depreciated to 7.3 Yuan for $1 USD. Chinese people know very little about what is happening in the world because CCP block WiFi in China. CCP brainwashed their Chinese people for the past 74 years.

I wonder if Putin wants to escape to China, Xi will accept Putin or not???

Honesty is the best policy.

Things went so dramatic and so fast just in few hours. I don't know what US stock market open up or down. I don't know how long this war will last. Russia has invaded Ukraine for a year and 4 months. It has been an anguish for all the people in the world.
