The Russian Kommersant newspaper reported on Monday, from an undisclosed source, that the Russian Federal Security Service is still conducting investigations against Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the private military group Wagner, on charges of organizing an armed rebellion.

A criminal case opened against Prigozhin on June 23 after he announced the departure of the fighters of his military group in a “march for justice” against military leaders whom he described as cowards and undermining Russia’s war effort in Ukraine.

A Kremlin spokesman said Moscow would drop criminal charges against the rebels in return for their return to the camps, while Prigozhin would move to Belarus under an agreement.

However, the Kommersant newspaper said on its website, quoting its source, that there was no time to change the status of the case.
