This unprecedented move forced Putin to address the nation, declaring it an internal mutiny. The world watched and speculated about what would happen next. Fortunately, the situation was de-escalated just as quickly. There was no civil war, and no World War III.
Thousands of miles away from Russia, people in Hong Kong were discussing the crisis on social media. Some saw it as entertainment, grabbing popcorn and waiting for the "show" to start. Others were disappointed that the situation was de-escalated and expressed their desire for a dramatic civil war. They even mocked Prigozhin for not being manly enough to confront Putin. However, they fail to realize that the world is intertwined, and conflicts like this have cascading effects on other countries and regions.
Prigozhin's behaviour in standing down was admirable. Regardless of his initial demands, allowing the situation to escalate and become a mutiny was not his intention. It was manly of him to not let his ego manifest and accept what was best for his mercenaries, his country, and the world.
Conflicts like this are not like two men having a street fight; it has big consequences. It's wise for people with power to refrain from fighting at the expense of others.
In related news, there was talk of a cage fight between Musk and Zuckerberg, which was ultimately cancelled. I am happy to see that. Both men are great tech leaders who should focus on building great things for the world rather than wasting time and taking risks to fight each other. They are not professional fighters, and it would not be entertaining to see them fight. Instead, they should focus on utilizing the money and resources allocated to them from society to make a positive impact.
