    Comment: As a Missileer in the late 1960's we would not have expected this to unfold.  Question now after this rebellion is who Controls Russia and especially the nuclear weapons?  Restated:  Will Putin remain in control?  What will happen with Ukraine?  How will NATO and EU handle this dynamic situation?

    Rapidly changing situation:


    • Belarus says Wagner chief agrees to halt troop movement toward Moscow

    • Prigozhin offered move to Belarus; Wagner troops to face no punishment over rebellion

    • The deal follows a rapid Wagner advance from southern Russia toward the capital

    • Earlier, President Vladimir Putin vowed to punish those involved in "armed mutiny"

    • Zelenskyy speaks of Russia "chaos," says Putin is "hiding somewhere"
