MOSCOW — The Kremlin says that Wagner group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin will leave for Belarus and a criminal case against him will be dropped.

Members of the Wagner paramilitary force who joined what Moscow called an “armed rebellion” will not be prosecuted, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov adds. “We have always respected their heroic deeds at the front.”
