Putin Faces His Most Serious Threat to Power, as Reports of Rebel Advancements Grow 


CIPHER SHORT COVERAGE — In a quick address to the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin swore not to “allow a civil war,” stimulating the Russian Revolution of 1917, while calling the current actions inside Russia by Wagner Group head Yevgeny Prigozhin as well as the thousands of hirelings he leads, a “betrayal from the inside.”

“This was the same kind of blow that Russia felt in 1917 when the country entered World War I, but had victory stolen from it,” Putin claimed in an aired address, a referral to a century-old change that ousted Tsar Nicholas II. “We will not allow this to happen again.”
