What's the future of Putin's regime following Yevgeny Prigozhin's presumed death?

Watch: What now for Putin's regime after Prigozhin's presumed death?

There will be "an awful lot of fear now" among army officers in Russia following the "supposed" death of Wagner mercenary leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, one Defence expert and former British Army officer has said.

Lieutenant Colonel (Ret'd) Glen Grant has spoken to Forces News about what Prigozhin's presumed death will mean for Russian President Vladimir Putin's regime.

Will this make the Russian leader stronger in the short term? The removal of an influential figure in Prigozhin, who had openly defied his authority, or will it lead to more "flaky" soldiers with further signs of instability in the officer communications?
