After Lukashenko’s announcement, the Kremlin said it was not tracking Prigozhin’s movements.

Yes you are. If you aren't you are incompetent and not doing your job.

But addressing reporters on Thursday, [Lukashenko] said: “As for Prigozhin, he’s in St Petersburg. He is not on the territory of Belarus.”

A business jet linked to Prigozhin left St Petersburg for Moscow on Wednesday and headed for southern Russia on Thursday, according to flight tracking data, but it was not clear if the mercenary chief was on board.

Just a simple exile in Belarus seemed odd. That might as well be an offer to return to the status of private citizen inside Russia itself. A clearly false option that ends in assassination.

But I have no idea what's up at this point. Prigozhin is being left free for some reason.
