International Editor

The head of the private Russian mercenary group, Wagner, has said his troops are handing over the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut to regular Russian forces.

Last Saturday Yevgeny Prigozhin declared that his soldiers had finally taken what’s left of the ruined city after a punishing battle that’s gone on for months.

But he’s also said that so many Russian troops have been killed, the country is ripe for revolution.
