Borelli sees Putin’s power affected by Wagner rebellion, but fears ‘instability’ of ‘nuclear power’

The European Union was monitoring the Wagner group’s rebellion over the weekend. Although they have always maintained that this is an “internal matter” for Russia, European diplomacy knows that it can have repercussions. High representative Josep Borrell warned about this before the meeting with foreign ministers on the 27th, with whom he will discuss this issue. Europe’s top diplomat insisted that the uprising, although suppressed, showed Vladimir Putin’s grip on power had been shaken, but warned of the dangers of “political instability” from nuclear power.

“It is not good to see that Russia is in political instability. This should be taken into account,” Borrell said in a statement to journalists upon his arrival in Luxembourg. For him, the trial launched this weekend by Wgner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin shows that “Russia’s military power is collapsing” and affecting its “political system,” which has exposed “weaknesses.”

“The monster created by Putin is acting against its creator,” said the vice-president of the European Commission, who believes that “it’s time to continue helping Ukraine.” Experts believe that a rebellion by Wagner Boss, a mercenary army used by Putin in his military interventions, including the invasion of Ukraine, could prompt a counterattack by Volodymyr Zelenskyi’s army.

“More than ever. And that’s what we’re going to do,” added Borrell, referring to a 3.5 billion euro increase in the military aid funding limit that EU foreign ministers are expected to approve this Monday.
