What Next For Wagner Troops After Belarus Exile?

President Vladimir Putin appeared to be in a precarious position after the the Wagner Group, led by Yevgeny Prigozhin staged an insurrection towards Moscow. The Wagner Group with close to 50 thousand troops is credited with the capture of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, and is considered one of Russia's most effective military units. We try to piece together what happened over the weekend and what the exile to Belarus means with Dr. Alexey Muraviev of Curtin University.
