VLADIMIR Putin's "General Armageddon" has reportedly been arrested amid claims he was in on the Wagner Group's armed revolt. General Sergey Surovikin - renowned for his merciless manoeuvres - has known links to Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Wagner mercenary army chief behind Saturday's rebellion. Just one month later, it was claimed that Surovikin and Prigozhin were plotting a coup against Putin. It comes as junior ranks in the Russian military are reportedly already being purged of those who showed support for Prigozhin's uprising against Putin’s commanders. Prighozin blamed an alleged Russian airstrike on Wagner troops in Ukraine for his decision to mount a mutiny.
