Belarus' leader has confirmed the founder of Russia’s mercenary Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, has safely arrived in the country


You're watching today. Let's take a look at what's making headlines around the world right now after mystery over his whereabouts. It has now been confirmed this morning the founder of Russia's mercenary Wagner group is now in Belarus. 

Europe correspondent Brett MacLeod is following the story and joins us live now. Brett, the Belarus leader says progosian is welcome to stay for some time. What does that mean? Yes, President Lukashenko of Belarus has well welcomed Pragosian there and also said any of the former Wagner group fighters that want to make their home there are welcome, too. 

Might be a handy way for him to pick up a few more soldiers for his own army. Pragosian's whereabouts were a mystery. He did release an audio message yesterday, but after backing down on his march on Moscow, there was a lot of questions about whether he was still with us. 

But he is and is obviously going to make Belarus his home for some time. In the meantime, at the Kremlin, a very staged ceremony put on by Vladimir Putin to look at looks like he's won a major victory, as opposed to a man who just survived an uprising. 

At the weekend, he thanked hundreds of soldiers standing before him for, as he said, stopping a civil war. But they didn't stop Russians being killed by other Russians. There was a minute silence held for fighter pilots who were killed by brigosian's troops. 

In the meantime, CNN has had an interview with the foreign minister for Ukraine asking if they had any advance warning about what happened in Russia at the weekend. No, we did not have any specific information with kind of the timeline of possible implementation of pregnancy's plans, but for us, it has always been pretty obvious that it's just a matter of time when someone in Russia will dare to challenge Putin. 

While all this plays out, the war in Ukraine continues. There's been a missile attack at Kramer Torsk and a shopping center, a place frequented by aid groups. At least two people killed and nearly two dozen injured.

And then he pulls out his gun and I'm like, whoa. Were there any words that were exchanged before he shot you? He only said five words don't come here ever again. The 17 year old was shot in the head and arm when he went to the wrong house to pick up his siblings.
