The head of British intelligence, MI6, Richard Moore, said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had no choice but to reach an agreement with the leader of Russia’s Wagner Special Forces, Yevgeny Prigozhin, to end his short-lived insurgency last month.

This came in Moore’s interview with CNN where he said, “Prigozhin didn’t really fight back… Putin made a deal to save himself, using the good offices of the leader of Belarus, so I can’t see what’s inside Putin’s head”.

Moore continued: “If you look at Putin’s behavior that day, I think Prigozhin started out, I think, as a traitor at breakfast, he was pardoned at dinner time and then a few days later he was invited to tea, there are some things that even the head of MI6 finds it somewhat difficult to interpret”.

The head of Britain’s Foreign Intelligence Service used a rare speech in Prague on Wednesday to make an appeal to disaffected Russians to spy for the UK, appealing to Russians “wrestling with their conscience” to take a stand against the Russian president authority and share secrets with MI6.
