      The plan hinged on Surovikin turning it into a proper coup/mutiny, but he chickened out at the last minute. Not sure if it would've succeeded in anything more than a protracted civil war, but they would have held Moscow at least.

      Step one: find the private data of whatever agent contacted you
      Step two: tell them you will hurt HIS family even more if he doesn't back off

      The fact that they had to resort to making threats about the family and Wagner just rolling towards Moscow meant they actually feared about losing. So threatening their family right back would be decently effective. Even better if you had the intelligence to tell them where their kids are RIGHT NOW.

      Other than that: your men need to see it through even if they doom their families, they must be aware and agree to that from the start. Only if the vast majority of your men are willing to sacrifice their families do you go through with it.

      In short: "If you threaten one of my family members I will kill 10 by skinning them alive of yours once we take over!" (and now you know why Civil Wars are so bloody)

      I still wonder what would happen if he kept going, all the way to Moscow into Kremlin. I genuinely think the resistance would be minimal based on the rather tepid response from the Air Force with their blunders, and he and his forces could dig in while having himself quite a leverage.

    Anyone who thought he had a genuine chance is blinded by the whole situation. The guy only had a couple thousand men at best, a lot of whom were left at Rostov. Priggy was clearly hoping his rhetoric of removing the corrupt degenerates at the top would resonate with common soldiers who would join him in droves, but instead everyone just refused to do anything, waiting to see what happens. It's also the reason why the column was so trigger happy when it came to Russian aircraft - any successful aerial attack could potentially eliminate a good portion of his forces
    It was fun to see the Russian gooberment in full panic mode, but you really can't hope to take and hold Moscow with a handful of tanks and a couple hundred dudes

    First things first, I wouldn't, I'd just have fricked off to Africa because I like living.
    If I had to, I'd keep going and tried to catch Rosgvardia on the outskirts of Moscow with their pants down and get them to mass surrender or collaborate.
    This would probably result in my forces getting vaporized by artillery and aircraft when they realized I wasn't gonna back down, but knowing the outcome, I'd have risked the 1% chance of success over a 100% chance of getting window'd after I back down.

          He was pretty good friends with Putin even before that, not to mention a billionaire with several lucrative government contracts. He didn't really need Wagner to further his influence.
          There is a possibility that, because he had the resources, he was coerced into starting it in a time when Putin saw the need for a private army with plausible deniability.

            Ah, very true, this is something Navalny has often spoken about in various videos and interviews.
            Since most of Putin's minions (with very few exceptions) operate at the tsar's pleasure, were the tsar to become displeased with said courtier's behavior (ex. if said individual were to refuse a "request"), things would start going very wrong, very quickly for that person.

        let me explain how this pretty legitimate business worked, the right people gave him contracts to supply food to prisons and the military because he would deliver substandard food, pocket some of the difference and give them the rest, launder money for them, and generally do criminal things. Now what happens when someone else says they'll replace you and give them a higher cut? What happens when one of your friends says help me with this problem or not only will I not renew your contract but I'll start an investigation into your corruption? The idea that he could have just been some innocent guy who's friends were all siloviki is ridiculous, you need power just to survive in that environment

          I mean, isn't that how most government contracts work, to various extents? Especially by Eastern Europe, that's nothing out of the ordinary.
          Of course, the latter part of your post is where it gets sketchy, in most of the world you'd just pay the guy off but it's Russia so it's a given he's got a few former friends swimming on the bottom of Neva. But that's also quite hard to prove and he had enough money to make it go away regardless of who does the investigating.
          So, an average businessman as far as anyone knows or cares to prove

    Don't go to Moscow but rather stay Rostov, build up your base of support by flipping army units to your side and hold the entire Ukrainian front's logistical supply hostage without ever explicitly saying so. Maybe false flag as Ukrainians so you have an excuse to not stand down.

    I wouldn't.
    When marching against your own country (ESPECIALLY when it's de facto an authoritarian regime) you either go all the way or you don't go at all, because without becoming the big boss death is guaranteed in your near future.
    I don't think Prigozhin could have realistically pulled off a coup, coups happen quickly and ideally the first time you find out about it is when it already happened, Prigozhin turning was made known a good distance away from the capital and the best case scenario for what he was doing was a very long civil war.
    Not that I think he was actually trying to do a coup, especially considering his rhetoric was "Putin's a good boy, those around him are lying to him" (which is what everyone says when they march against a popular dictator or monarch throughout history, shit don't change), I think he was counting on his popularity to get the kremlin to meet him half way and when they didn't he went "uh oh, I wasn't actually expecting that".

    Prigozhin's march on Moscow is the military equivalent to initiating a game of gay chicken and chickening out first while also being the only person who thinks what he did is amusing resulting in him being known as the gay moron for the rest of his life and losing all his friends.

    Whether it would have succeeded or not really depends on if the Government entirely fled Moscow, and whether the armed units started obeying Wagner in the absence of any authority. I cannot speak to that, I doubt anyone outside Russia could, but the fact very few people were trying to defend Putin before the deal bodes poorly, even if they weren't rallying to Prigozhin in turn. Public apathy cuts both way, like in the October revolution where while in absolute terms very few people bothered to support the Bolsheviks, even fewer bothered to support Kerensky. The success of the mutiny depended on how deep that apathy cut.

    Regardless, it really was a mistake to abandon the march. The Rubicon was firmly behind him, and from that point it was going to end with one of them dead. Which it did. He was a massive silly billy.

    I would have looted the Kremlin and fled to Argentina. If Prigozhin had successfully coup'd Putin, all he would have done is prove to every two-bit, wannabe-warlord oligarch that they too could take over Russia through force. Not to mention the US would come in to stabilize Russia and prevent their nukes from ending up in the wrong hands. It was basically a suicide mission to take over.
