Trek Project One Madone SLR

Project one madone slr.

Just finished my Dream Bike build! Amethyst Project One paint with all the oil slick anodized accessories down to the headset bolt, titanium cages, and bar tape! I love it so much, I put 160 miles on it in my first weekend riding it around Minneapolis with friends. I wanted this bike to be as much a piece of art as it is form and function. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out 🤩 I hope you all enjoy it too!

Inside: Trek's Project One semi-custom operation

Laying up carbon frames, then painting and building to spec

Ben Delaney/Future Publishing

trek project one amethyst

With Trek's Project One program, riders can select not only the components but the frame and wheel color scheme as well, choosing from 18 different Trek machines. While these Project One bikes represent less than one percent of Trek's approximately 1.5m bikes sold each year, the Wisconsin company has elevated the program with a state-of-the-art paint studio and an impressively quick delivery.

BikeRadar visited Trek's operations in Waterloo and Whitewater, Wisconsin, for a close look.

Cut from the cloth

A signature bike can be built from scratch and sent out in about 20 days, Trek claims.

The Project One bikes are handmade in Waterloo, each from dozens of pieces of digitally cut carbon-fiber cloth. Like most carbon manufacturers, Trek uses a combination of unilateral and weave carbon fiber. 12K and 3K carbon, for example, refers to a weave where 12,000 and 3,000 strings of carbon are aligned in each main strand. The strands are about a 0.25in wide and 0.005in thick.

Frames are created in parts, with the dozens of pieces of carbon cloth laid into metal molds, which are then pressurized internally and subjected to high heat to melt and 'cure' the epoxy embedded in the cloth.

Each piece of carbon is digitally cut and hand laid into molds

Although Trek is guarded about its exact assembly process, the company says a Madone frame has about 180 parts, each the result of careful engineering calculations. The longer Trek has worked in carbon, the trickier it becomes to refine the designs.

"Back in 1990, it was easy to carve out weight," said Jim Colegrove, Trek's senior composites engineer. "Just move over to carbon [from aluminum] and make some basic changes." A steel Trek frame at the time, for example, was about 4.5lb, an aluminum frame 3.5lb, and a carbon version, the 5500 OCLV, 2.5lb. "Now the game is so specific. Each layer of carbon is carefully considered."

Similarly, the molds used have become increasingly complex. "We used to have four pieces for the headtube junction lug," Colegrove said. "Now there are between 50 and 60 pieces."

All Trek's molds are designed and produced in Trek's 'old red barn' — the original drafty Trek facility that sits right next to some railroad tracks .

This stay mold assembly is one of the simplest Trek uses — and the only one we could photograph

Painted to suit — by robot

When Trek was building thousands of bikes in Wisconsin, painting was done in huge factory lines. Now that the majority of Trek's bike construction has been outsourced to Asia, the paint program has evolved.

Bob Seibel, the managing paint engineer and a 24-year Trek employee, has overseen Trek's transition from old-school paint booths with a hanging line that resembled mechanized meathooks to the new-school, robotic paint machinery. To create crisp lines between colors on the frame, precision masking is key. That, too, is digitized.

As with the carbon frame pieces, the masking for paint is digitally cut for speed and repeatability

"In the old days we would buy masks from people," Seibel said. "When we purchased Klein, we got custom CAD cutter. Now we can print, cut and laminate our masks within hours of designing them."

There are some neat features of the massive paint line, including an electric oven for drying decals, an RF system for reading ID tags that travel with each frame and the 40,000rpm, 60k-volt atomizer that spreads a nice, uniform coat of paint across a frame.

"In the old shop, we had seven guys," Seibel said. "They had good days, they had bad days, some frames were slightly heavier, some slightly lighter. Now it is an exact science, and there is very little waste."

A robotic arm works its way around the frame, misting atomized paint as it goes

Project One paint can weigh as little as 5g, Seibel said, compared to a standard 28g or so for a regular frame.

White, when used, is always the last coat to go on.

Built to spec — by hand and machine

Once the frames are painted, Trek whisks them down to its Whitewater factory where Project One assembly shares the building with Bontrager's wheel assembly lines. This cavernous building used to house much of Trek's frame construction operation, employing about 600 people, before that was outsourced. As recently as two years ago, Trek still built some aluminum frames here.

Today there are about 20 people working in Whitewater. Trek employs about 800 at its headquarters in Waterloo, approximately 30 in Madison, and another 1,000 around the world.

Every frame travels through assembly with its unique spec sheet on a yellow board

So why scatter Wisconsin employees across three counties? In two words: labor and taxes. "We you go one county over you get tax incentives, plus you get a bigger labor pool," said Bontrager marketing director Michael Browne.

Each Project One frame travels with its unique spec sheet. In the back of the building, towering shelving houses all manner of high-end parts. Here, man, woman and machine work in tandem to pick parts, transport frames down the line and quickly assemble the final product before a quality-control check and careful packing.

It's a different process than Trek used to employ here, when rapid assembly of identical bikes was the order of the day. But with custom orders on the rise — and mass production in Asia for the foreseeable future — Project One's one-by-one creation method remains a point of pride for Trek.

The Project One program from Trek is their long-running custom program, allowing you to completely customize your dream bike. It has evolved over time, but recently received an update on the road side, with new models to customize, along with new ICON paint schemes and more component choices.

Trek Project One Road Custom Program 2019 Updates

Trek’s Project One has long been building high-dollar custom bikes to satisfy even the pickiest of customers. The MTB side saw a significant upgrade earlier this year, with the addition of new ICON paint schemes – but now it’s the roadies’ turn.

trek project one amethyst

The road models available to customize include the new Domane SLR (above), Madone SLR/SLR Speed, Emonda SLR, and Speed Concept.

New component choices include R-Series road tires, Pro IsoCore VR-C and VR-S handlebars, Aeolus Pro 3 V wheels, and Aeolus sadles.

There are also two new ICON premium paint jobs in addition to the carryover options. Trek provided the descriptions below…

trek project one amethyst

“NEW – Molten Marble brings the heat. With hypnotizing swirls of pearly red lava and smoky chrome, this paint scheme is a real force of nature. Available with or without Trek-Segafredo race team logos.”

“NEW – Cosmos is a paint scheme of galactic proportions. Take your ride from ordinary to otherworldly with three phases of color that fade from planetary purple to deep dark blue to the metallic black of deep space, all dotted with unique, hand-flecked constellations.”

trek project one amethyst

“No two Brushed Liquid Metal paint schemes are alike. Beneath the glossy finish, the unique hand-scuffed undercoat has an industrial character with a deep, smoky tint.”

“Refliptive is a new twist on a coveted scheme of cycling’s past. Shades of amethyst and bright green flip to purple in changing light like a mood ring (if you’re always in a good mood). This scheme also features reflective logos.”

“Up close, the Black Gold paint scheme is as classy as a tuxedo. From a distance, the metallic flake and the raised dimensional logos give it a golden texture and depth.”

trek project one amethyst

“Is every one of your rides a vision quest? Prismatic Pearl is a psychedelic, mind-bending paint scheme on a different plane of consciousness. It morphs in changing light to show every color and shade in the rainbow.”

The new Project One options are available as of July 25, 2019, with pricing adjusted based on the options you choose.

Black Gold Star for you, sir. 😀

To boldy go if your wallet can take you…

whatever

Funny how cheap big box bikes so often much more visually appealing over the “Name Brand” bikes that can be $500-$5000 or more. I’m sure someone (likely a bike snob) will be along shortly to tell me “aesthetics shouldn’t matter” crap. To which I say fine, go put Huffy graphics on your $3-5K bike until it visually is a Huffy. Now tell me it shouldn’t matter….. When you make your expensive bike look like a cheap bike and ride it for years, you will have a leg to stand on then.

bike snob

Aesthetics shouldn’t matter.

Eggs Benedict

But they do.

Lets see your Huffy!

Huffagnolo SuperMagna

Gladly! They might also have a 7-11 logo as well and be built by Ben Serrota or John Slatwa or Eddy Merckx : )

Padrote

I can’t tell what you’re on about but aesthetics definitely matter and for the most part people who get paid lots of money to do design have better designs and opinions than people on the internet.

Heffe

They never include CX bikes in this program.

Dinger

Likely that CX don’t sell enough to justify it.

Seraph

Trek: “We added new options to our P1 road lineup!” Us: “Ok but can you add ‘cross, gravel, and more mountain bikes to the P1 system?” Trek: “Look! New colors!” Us: “Yeah but–” Trek: “And components!” Us: “If we could just have some diversity–” Trek: “ROAD BIKES”

Celest Greene

That red reminds me of some early ’00s Ellsworth finishes. So many conflicting emotions.

I love the bass boat sparkles though.

JBikes

is the size of the trek logo in the lead photo a joke?

Richard Lang

Its their team design and it is optional (Available with or without Trek-Segafredo race team logos)

I realize that. But it’s still ridiculous regardless. Nobody was looking at last years bikes and saying “what is that”. The team TREK logo was always prominent. Now its comical. There is such a thing as overdoing it.

Robin

It’s too bad Project One doesn’t offer Campagnolo components.

Befitting Bicycles

1. Unless you have native heritage you shouldn’t be talking about “vision quests”. 2. I’m tired of people pretending that a semi custom paint job on a stock Geometry bike with limited component options is “custom”. For that amount of money you can get an actual custom bike: custom Geometry, any paint you want, any parts group you want. 3. Those trek logo sizes have gotten out of hand.

uomorana71

100% true facts

John

Strange that Project One doesn’t offer Shimano’s GRX components even as an option, given that the GRX groupset was specifically designed for all-road bikes like the Domane.

Then again, it wouldn’t be a Trek if the project team didn’t insist on making at least a couple of boneheaded design decisions.

Trek Madone Project One Race Shop Limited review

John Degenkolb's Tour de France Trek Madone - Gallery

Trek's Project One bikes are semi-customizable bikes painted at Trek's Waterloo, Wisconsin, headquarters. Check out the gallery above for a sample of the latest paint schemes available.

Project One bikes are painted in Wisconsin

Chasin' Aces

The Chasin' Aces motif is based on Degenkolb's cafe racer motorcycle

The inspiration for the Chasin' Aces paintwork came from Trek-Segafredo rider John Degenkolb's motorcycle. Trek took its existing Cafe Racer design and added some additional stripes and highlights.

10 shift buttons on Degenkolb's Tour de France Trek Madone

Degenkolb will be racing a Chasin' Aces Madone at the Spring Classics.

The Chasin' Aces paint scheme is available only on the Madone.

Finding your triathlon bike in a sea of aero bars will be easier with a bright paint job

According to Trek, blending two complementary colors into one striking bike is the goal with Full Fade. The upper color is brighter while the lower color is darker.

Top 5 custom bikes at the Tour de France

Thirteen pre-chosen color options are available for any road, mountain or triathlon bike within Project One.

All of Project One's solid color options, except for Onyx Carbon, are fair game for the Breakaway design

Alberto Contador's bike from the 2017 Vuelta a Espana is claimed to be the muse for the Breakaway paint scheme. Any solid color available in Project One (except for Onyx Carbon) is fair game for a custom look.

The Breakaway paint choice is limited to the Emonda SLR 9, 8, 8 Disc, 6, and 6 Disc.

Trek’s new Chroma Project One Icon paint jobs turn carbon into metal

trek project one amethyst

Trek’s latest Chroma custom paint options are particularly stunning thanks to a “unique, proprietary method that showcases the master craftsmanship of the artists in Trek’s Project One paint booth.” Put in simpler terms, it’s an ultra-shiny paint finish that makes carbon fiber look like polished metal.

Trek is offering Chroma in just two hues to start — Ruby Chroma and Sapphire Chroma — which rather convincingly look like red anodized and blue anodized aluminum. At least for now, those two new paint schemes will be limited to just the Madone and Emonda road bikes with enormous white Trek logos on the down tube (and Trek-Segafredo logos on the top tube). Both are available exclusively through Trek’s premium Project One Icon custom program. 

Not surprisingly, the Trek-Segafredo team riders will be showcasing these new colors at the upcoming Tour de France and La Course.

Depending on the popularity of the those two colors, presumably Trek will add more shades in the future, and hopefully additional models. The price will hopefully come down at some point, too. As it stands currently, the Chroma colors look fantastic, but you really, really have to want them given the hefty US$2,000 upcharge.

“There is a ton of complexity and time in the Chroma process, and the by-product of that is extra cost,” explained Trek road product marketing manager Anders Ahlberg. “The logo on Chroma isn’t customizable, unless you were to spring for Project One Ultimate, in which case, we can do anything.”

Trek Get Super Snazzy with New Custom Options – Project One

Trek’s Project One program is a way to customise a Trek build with options of spec and paint. And they’ve just added a few amazing options into the mix we think they are pretty wild, perhaps too wild, or just the right amount of wild?

The official word from Trek’s press release here:

Trek announced a refresh of its Project One custom bike program today, introducing six new paint schemes and an all-new catalogue of premium spec and drive train options.

This expansion of the programme adds even more depth to Trek’s custom offering, giving riders everywhere more ways to create a custom bike they’ll love.

Three of the new paint schemes (Amplified Alchemy, Sweet Gold Leaf and Holographic Diamond Flake) are additions to the premium Project One ICON Series of bespoke designs filled with texture, depth and mood.

Two of the remaining new paint schemes (Abstract and Palmarès) are part of an all-new Designer Series, a personal collection that comes directly from designers on Trek’s Waterloo-based team.

How foreign architects are changing the face of Moscow

Yakimanskaya Embankment / Anton Belitskiy

Tourists who came to Moscow this summer probably noticed that the city center had turned into one large construction site. By September 2017 the Russian capital will see the appearance of 50 new parks, 50 kilometers of renewed streets and 12 renovated embankments. All this is happening thanks to the "My Street" program, which was launched by the city administration in 2014 in cooperation with the Strelka Design Bureau and foreign architecture stars, such as Snøhetta, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Okra and others. Here are some examples of new projects that are under way in Moscow right now.

Tverskaya Street and Tverskaya Zastava Square

Tverskaya Street / Anton Belitskiy

The project for the reconstruction of the Moscow’s main street is being handled by the Dutch bureau West 8, which is already known for its works in Russia: for instance, their New Holland renovation project in St. Petersburg.

Tverskaya Street / Anton Belitskiy

Tverskaya Street’s facelift is almost over, and the reconstruction of Tverskaya Zastava Square is slated for completion by the end of 2017.

Bolotnaya Square and Yakimanskaya Embankment

These two famous districts of Moscow are being renovated by the architectural office Snøhetta from Norway.

Lubyanka / Strelka KB

Snøhetta became famous for the makeover of the National Opera and Ballet in Oslo and the reconstruction of Times Square in New York.

Children's Route

Pushechnaya Street / Anton Belitskiy

In 2016 American landscape architect Martha Schwartz and her eponymous bureau devised the architectural concept for the "Children's Route".

Moskva-Class Cruisers

Separate design teams often attempt to meet a set of ship specifications with completely different, although equally valid, strategies. To fulfill the requirements issued in April 2169 for the successor (NX-223) to the Daedalus class, which was introduced at the end of the Romulan War, Prosser & Ankopitch proposed a ship with an extremely large, spherical command hull attached to a nearly vestigial engineering hull. The proposal from the Mikoyan-Tupolev-Dassault Bureau used a long narrow command hull with a minimal frontal silhouette counterbalanced by an equally long engineering hull.

The engineers at Tezuka-Republic decided that the division of ship's functions between a command/crew hull and an engineering hull was arbitrary and unnecessarily restricted design options. Therefore, rather than gathering all the specified facilities in a single hull, their design TR-223A spread them across two hulls, as in Daedalus , and segregated the SSWR-IV-C warp core to a "bustle" at the extreme aft end of the secondary hull. This bustle could be separated easily and quickly from the rest of the engineering hull in the event of a warp core breach. The now-unpowered warp nacelles would then be shed. In this way, the demands of safety would be met without warp dynamics being degraded either by an excessively large frontal silhouette or by longitudinal warp field imbalance.

Although the Ship Specifications Review Board praised Tezuka-Republic for its creative solution to the problem of admittedly contradictory requirements for extreme safety and improved warp performance, they were forced to disqualify design TR-223A for not precisely meeting contract specifications. Therefore, in October 2171, construction contract NX-223 for Starfleet's new cruiser was awarded to Prosser & Ankopitch for what would become the Wasp class .

However, almost no one was happy with the new Wasp ships. Even before the contract was awarded, voices within Starfleet and within industry had strongly criticized the specifications of April 2169. These critics charged that they would lead to a mediocre, albeit safe, fighting ship. Two separate classes were needed, not a single class that was neither a proper explorer nor a proper warship. When Wasp was finally launched in 2173, her performance during precommisioning trials clearly showed that the critics had been correct. Although the performance problems were related in part to the continuing unavailability of the more powerful Tezuka-Republic Hiryu ("Flying Dragon") mark III warp nacelles, Wasp was obviously not the ship Starfleet had hoped for.

In a second attempt to obtain a reliable and capable warship, new specifications (NX-374) were issued in September 2175, little more than a year after USS  Wasp had entered service. Adding to this sense of urgency were intelligence reports suggesting that the Romulans had either developed or otherwise acquired matter/antimatter (M/AM) reactors. This time the specifications put less emphasis upon safety. The original requirement for completely separate command and engineering hulls was eliminated; instead, any hull configuration was allowed as long as the warp core could be quickly separated from the rest of the ship. Furthermore, requirements for speed, acceleration, and maneuverability both under impulse power and under warp power were increased, as were performance levels for target acquisition, tracking, and servicing.

These new specifications were a clear, albeit belated, admission that the critics had been correct all along: one class could not be expected to serve as both an explorer and a main battleship. In fact, starship technology was not considered sufficiently mature for a single ship to adequately fulfill both mission profiles until 2245, when the Constitution -class heavy cruiser was launched. (The controversy continues even today in the wake of the problems of the Galaxy -class explorer.)

Luckily, the designers and engineers at Tezuka-Republic had not been idle since their disappointing loss of the Wasp contract in 2171. Instead, they had spent their time refining design TR-223A so that their new entry (TR-374A) was markedly superior to what had been submitted 5 years earlier. In particular, the new SSWR-V warp reactor allowed the bustle to be made smaller, lighter, and even more easily separable. Therefore, it was hardly surprising when in November 2176 Tezuka-Republic was awarded the production contract over designs from Shimata-Dominquez, Prosser & Ankopitch, Mikoyan-Tupolev Dassault, Monarch R&U, and Thornycroft/Ebisu for what was to become the Moskva class.

However, engineering prowess may not have been the only factor in Tezuka-Republic's winning of the contract. There were accusations that the delay in delivery of the Hiryu warp engines was an attempt by Tezuka-Republic to prevent Wasp from reaching her designed performance levels. While no conclusive incriminating evidence has come to light, the delivery of the long-awaited engines shortly before the scheduled launch of Moskva in December 2177 is certainly suspicious. Tezuka-Republic maintains that if their submission of 2169 had been selected, its performance would also have not have met design specifications without the Hiryu engines. However, critics charge that TR-223A was not as reliant as Wasp on the type of engine used. Furthermore, once the Wasp contract was awarded, and even after Wasp was launched, Tezuka-Republic certainly made no efforts to accelerate delivery of Hiryu.

These controversies were soon rendered moot as the new Moskva class was recognized as a significant advance in starship design. The most important new feature was Moskva's discoid primary hull. Earlier designs had chosen a spherical primary hull for reasons of economy. Simple geometric relationships dictate that a spherical hull has the smallest surface area for a given volume. Therefore, construction costs are lower and shields are more efficient. Furthermore, institutional inertia had led nearly all exploratory cruisers originating until that time from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the United States Astronautics Agency, the United Earth Space Probe Agency, and its successor organizations to have spherical hulls.

The designers of USS  Moskva employed a biconvex disc for several reasons. Their initial motive was to increase hull volume while minimizing both frontal and lateral silhouettes. A warship with large frontal and lateral silhouettes would be at a greater disadvantage in most tactical situations than would be a ship with an increased superior silhouette. However, the discoid hull allowed the traditional radial layout of command hulls to be retained.

More important than these tactical advantages were functional advantages. As was shown with the Wasp class, warp field geometry would have been awkward if a spherical hull with its relatively large frontal area had been used. The discoid hull was also found to channel warp field flow across its upper surface towards the bussard ram scoops of the warp nacelles. This channeling effect improved field efficiency at all power levels and speeds. As the understanding of warp field mechanics was refined, the trend towards saucer-shaped primary hulls would be intensified in later Starfleet vessels.

In most respects, the Moskva class continued design and engineering trends established in the Comet and Daedalus classes introduced at the end of the Romulan War. As in these classes, ship functions were clearly divided between a command/crew hull and an engineering/propulsion hull. The bridge was returned to its customary position atop the command hull and the shuttlecraft bay was again placed in the secondary hull. The fusion reactor was centered along the longitudinal axis of the ship, and impulse thrust ports exited immediately in front of the warp bustle detachment seam.

Weaponry was the then-standard mix of fusion-warhead missiles and lasers. New to this class was an early type of ultraphased pulse laser cannon, two of which were mounted in the chin of the primary hull. Although the on-target energy output of this new weapon approached that of early phasers, its power requirement was higher and its range was substantially less. However, subsequent refinements lead to steady improvement and, ultimately, to the development of true phasers in 2202. Although Moskva -class ships were the first to be fitted with phasers in 2204, lasers were still carried by the Moskva class and later classes until the 2220s. Finally, warp capability was supplied by the long-awaited Hiryu mark III drive units.

The first ship of the new class, USS  Moskva (NCC-374), entered service with Starfleet in April 2179. An additional 30 ships (NCC-375 to NCC-404) joined the fleet through 2183. Moskva -class ships gained immediate popularity with officers and crews. First, total laser firepower was increased some 75% over that in the preceding Wasp class. Second, because the ship's mass was more equally distributed along the longitudinal axis than in the Wasp class, Moskva was significantly more maneuverable at both sublight and warp speeds. Finally, the more warp-dynamic design allowed greater cruising and maximum speeds.

The Moskva class had an outstanding safety record. No ships were lost because of mechanical failures. However, an incident occurred aboard USS  Johannesburg in 2186 when a faulty nacelle flow monitor falsely indicated a runaway positive feedback power loop within the plasma flow governor. Believing that a catastrophic warp core explosion was imminent, Chief Engineer Roberta Bocharnikov ordered the warp nacelles and warp bustle to be separated. Although unnecessary, these maneuvers were successful in causing the separated warp core to initiate its automatic shut-down routine. The warp core, nacelles, and the rest of the ship were towed to Starbase 13, where they were successfully re-mated. Despite her supreme embarrassment, Bocharnikov oversaw the reassembly and relaunching of Johannesburg and retained her position as chief engineer.

Although most ships of the Moskva class had left front-line service by 2215, some continued to serve as auxiliaries and training vessels until the 2240s. After retirement from active duty, Moskva -class ships were used as testbeds for many emerging technologies owing to the similarities of their layouts to those of succeeding classes. USS  Moskva was the site of the first successful ship-to-surface transport of a Human being in 2206, and USS  Gato was the first ship to fire photon torpedoes in 2214. In addition, Taurus -class tugs, which entered service in 2182, and Sanford -class repair tenders, which entered service in 2185, were derived from the Moskva class and used the same primary hull and warp drive assembly.

The Moskva -class cruiser USS  Aurora (NCC-377), a participant of the Battle of Eohippus IV, is on display at the Starfleet Museum.

Exclusive: 2 planes linked to Prigozhin seen at Belarusian airbase in satellite image

From CNN’s Paul P. Murphy, Natasha Bertrand and Jennifer Hansler

Two planes linked to Wagner CEO Yevgeny Prigozhin landed at a Belarusian airbase outside of Minsk on Tuesday morning, according to a satellite image from BlackSky.

Two planes linked to Wagner CEO Yevgeny Prigozhin landed at a Belarusian airbase outside the country's capital city on Tuesday morning, according to a satellite image from BlackSky. 

Prigozhin's exact whereabouts are still unknown. He hasn’t been seen in any videos or photos since he left the Rostov-on-Don military headquarters Saturday evening. 

However, Belarusian state media quoted Belarus’ President Aleksandr Lukashenko on Tuesday, saying that Prigozhin is in Belarus.

The satellite image taken Tuesday morning by BlackSky shows the two planes — with serial numbers RA-20795 and RA-02878 – sitting on the tarmac at Machulishchy Airbase, just outside Minsk. Additional satellite imagery from BlackSky, as well as CNN’s analysis of the planes' measurements, confirmed the planes arrived within the last 24 hours and matched the dimensions of the Prigozhin-linked planes.

Flight tracking data from FlightRadar24 indicated that the planes landed near Minsk at around 8 a.m. local time. Both planes had their transponders turned off before landing, obscuring their exact landing location. 

Two sources – a senior European intelligence official and a source familiar with Prigozhin’s planes – confirmed to CNN the planes are linked to the Wagner boss but did not know if Prigozhin was on board.

The movement of Prigozhin’s planes has been closely watched in the aftermath of his attempted insurrection over the weekend.  

On Sunday afternoon, Prigozhin’s plane, RA-20795, appeared to make a trip to Rostov-on-Don from St. Petersburg. Tracking data from FlightRadar24 doesn’t show the plane landing in the city Prigozhin took control of on Saturday, but it makes a sudden turn toward the city before its transponders are turned off. 

Roughly five hours later, the plane’s transponders were turned back on, and it was seen leaving the Rostov-on-Don area, heading back to St. Petersburg. 

Then, at 1:03 a.m. this morning, the same plane appeared to make the same trek to the Rostov-on-Don area and once again, it turned off its transponders before landing. 

The plane appeared back on radar at 5:32 a.m. local time, appearing to leave the Rostov-on-Don area, and began making a circuitous trek around Ukraine and Southern Russia towards Minsk. The transponders were turned off again at 7:37 a.m. local time as it began descending into the Minsk area.  

The second plane, Ra-02878, flew from one Moscow airport to another on Sunday afternoon: Sheremetyevo International to Zhukovsky International Airport. On Monday, it flew from Moscow to St. Petersburg, landing at 1:26 p.m.

At 6:44 a.m. this morning, that plane left St. Petersburg. The transponders were turned off at 7:55 a.m. local time as it began descending into the Minsk area. 

Wagner troops are still inside Ukraine, Pentagon says

From CNN's Michael Conte and Haley Britzky

Wagner troops are still inside Ukraine after the weekend mutiny, according to the US Defense Department.

“But in terms of their specific disposition and whether they may or may not move be moving, I'm not going to speculate on that,” said Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder at a press briefing.

Ryder added that the US did not make any changes to US force posture in response to the events in Russia.

“[W]e've not seen anything that would, from our perspective, require us to make any type of forced posture adjustments,” he said.

Russian defense minister delivers first public remarks since Wagner rebellion

From CNN's Mariya Knight

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu before the meeting with heads of security agencies, on Monday.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu delivered his first on-camera remarks since the Wagner rebellion during a meeting with his Cuban counterpart Gen. Alvaro Lopez in Moscow.

Shoigu said Russia-Cuban relationships “are on the rise today” and that Cuba remains an important Russian ally who showed a “full understanding of the reasons for the start of a ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine.”

“ Under conditions when the United States have been carrying out an illegal and illegitimate trade and economic blockade of Cuba for many decades, we are ready to provide assistance to the "Island of Freedom," to lend a shoulder to our Cuban friends,” Shoigu said Tuesday.

According to a statement from the Russian defense ministry, the Cuban defense minister said his country opposed “unilateral anti-Russian sanctions.”

US imposes sanctions on 4 companies and an individual tied to the Wagner Group

From CNN's Jennifer Hansler

The US Treasury Department on Tuesday imposed sanctions on four companies involved in “gold dealing” and one person they say made “weapons deals” tied to the Wagner Group.

The announcement of the sanctions comes days after the  short-lived mutiny  led by the head of the mercenary group’s leader, Yevegny Prigozhin.

They target companies in Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and the Central African Republic that “have engaged in illicit gold dealings to fund the Wagner Group to sustain and expand its armed forces, including in Ukraine and Africa.”

The targeted individual, Andrey Nikolayevich Ivanov (Ivanov), is a Russian executive in the Wagner Group who “worked closely with Prigozhin’s entity Africa Politology and senior Malian government officials on weapons deals, mining concerns, and other Wagner Group activities in Mali,” according to a Treasury Department release.

“The Wagner Group funds its brutal operations in part by exploiting natural resources in countries like the Central African Republic and Mali. The United States will continue to target the Wagner Group’s revenue streams to degrade its expansion and violence in Africa, Ukraine, and anywhere else,” Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian Nelson said in a statement.

Sweden says it has fulfilled the requirements set out by Turkey to join NATO

From CNN's Duarte Mendonca in London 

Sweden has fulfilled the requirements set out by Turkey in order to join NATO, Foreign Minister Tobias Billstrom said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference alongside the UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, Billstrom said that with the introduction of a new terrorism law, Sweden has fulfilled the final requirements to join the alliance agreed in a tri-lateral plan between Finland, Sweden and Turkey.

"New legislation has recently entered into force in Sweden that makes it illegal to participate in a terrorist organization in any way that promotes, strengthens or supports it. We are thereby delivering on the last parts of our agreement," Billstrom said.

The UK foreign secretary also addressed the journalists in the room, reiterating the UK’s support for Sweden’s NATO inclusion. "My position is clear that Sweden must and shall join NATO and should do so as soon as possible," Cleverly said. 

"We will continue to push for the speedy completion of your accession process," Cleverly added. 

The UK foreign minister also stressed that it was in Turkey’s interest “that Sweden becomes a member of the alliance and does so quickly."

Sweden stated its intent to join NATO through its open-door policy in May last year, just weeks after Russia launched its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. 

US secretary of state announces $500 million security assistance package for Ukraine

Antony Blinken attends the Ukraine Recovery Conference in London, on June 21.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced a $500 million security assistance package for Ukraine Tuesday.

According to a statement, the package includes:

  • Bradley and Stryker vehicles
  • Additional munitions for air defense systems
  • Multiple launch rocket systems
  • Anti-tank weapons
  • Anti-radiation missiles
  • Precision aerial munitions

"The enduring courage and solidarity of the people of Ukraine continues to inspire the world. Russia started this unprovoked war against Ukraine," Blinken said in his statement.

Blinken went on to reaffirm US commitment to Ukraine.

"Russia could end it at any time by withdrawing its forces from Ukraine and stopping its brutal attacks against Ukraine’s cities and people. Until Russia does so, the United States and our allies and partners will stand united with Ukraine, for as long as it takes," he said.

UN report: Over 800 civilians detained by Russia in Ukraine, with many tortured and executed

From CNN's Duarte Mendonca and Yulia Kesaieva

Almost 900 Ukrainian civilians have been detained by Russia — with 77 executed — in the first 10 months of the war in Ukraine, according to a United Nations report released on Tuesday.  

Russian forces “engaged in widespread torture and ill-treatment of civilian detainees” and, in some cases “subjected (them) to sexual violence,” the head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, Matilda Bogner, said in a statement.  

The report covers 15 months of the war, from February 2022 to May 2023.

“Torture was used to force victims to confess to helping Ukrainian armed forces, compel them to cooperate with the occupying authorities or intimidate those with pro-Ukrainian views,” Bogner said. 

Civilians who were detained included local public officials, humanitarian volunteers, priests and teachers.  

"Many civilian detainees were held incommunicado, in unofficial places of detention, often in deplorable conditions. In about a quarter of the documented cases, civilian detainees were transferred to other locations within occupied territory or deported to the Russian Federation. Often, no information was disclosed to their families for prolonged periods of time," according to the report.  

The UN also found evidence of civilian detentions by Ukraine, reporting a total of 75 arrests, mostly of people suspected of "conflict-related" offenses. Over half of those arbitrarily detained by Ukrainian forces also reported being tortured or mistreated, usually while they were being interrogated or immediately after arrest, Bogner said.  

According to Bogner, Ukraine offered “unimpeded confidential access to official places of detention and detainees” with the exception of a group of 87 Russian sailors, while Russia did not grant similar access, despite the UN’s requests.

Wagner chief Prigozhin is in Belarus. Here's what you need to know

From CNN staff

Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin arrived in Belarus Tuesday, according to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

In an address, Lukashenko said he cautioned Prigozhin that his forces would be destroyed if they continued their march to the Russian capital. "Halfway you'll just be crushed like a bug,” Lukashenko recalls telling Prigozhin during a call on Saturday, according to Belarusian state media. 

Lukashenko also provided new details about the conversations he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prigozhin over the weekend, saying that negotiations with the Wagner boss occurred all day Saturday.

The Belarusian president claimed the country is not currently building camps on its territory for Wagner mercenary forces, and that he'd offered the group some abandoned land inside Belarus if they needed it.

Earlier, Putin told Russian security personnel that they "virtually stopped a civil war" in responding to Wagner forces' failed insurrection, in strong remarks following Russia's weekend of chaos.

Here are other key developments related to the Wagner rebellion:

  • "You saved our homeland:" Putin told security forces at a Kremlin invitational event that they "defended the constitution, the lives and the freedom of our citizens" while fighting against Wagner mutineers. He also thanked officials for showing "responsibility for the fate of the Motherland and its future."
  • Display of unity: Putin said the personnel involved in facing Wagner's rebellion on Saturday "did not flinch," after the march led by Prigozhin appeared to threaten Moscow. Separately, the Kremlin also rejected the notion that Putin's authority had been jeopardized.
  • Wagner charges dropped: Russia's Federal Security Service said on Tuesday it will drop a case against Wagner fighters. "It was established that its participants stopped their actions directly aimed at committing a crime, the case was closed," it said. The Russian defense ministry said Wagner will also transfer its heavy military equipment to active Russian military units.
  • Russian pilot casualties: Putin on Monday confirmed the deaths of Russian army pilots in clashes against Wagner over the weekend. Prigozhin said earlier that "not a single soldier on the ground was killed." The president on Tuesday said no civilians died during the mutiny.
  • More details about Lukashenko and Putin's discussions: Lukashenko highlighted his purported role in quelling Wagner's advance. According to Lukashenko’s account , reported by Belarusian state media, he spoke with Putin on the phone at 10 a.m. local time (3 a.m. ET) Saturday about the mounting crisis in Russia’s south. "I suggested Putin not to hurry. Let's talk with Prigozhin, with his commanders,” he recalled of those early conversations with the Russian leader.
  • Transfer of tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus: Lukashenko said most of the tactical nuclear weapons that Russia plans to station in Belarus have already arrived. He denied that Wagner forces are being used to guard the weapons, saying: “Russians and Belarusians are guarding it… No Wagner fighters will guard nuclear weapons. This is our task." 

Analysis: A look at Putin's effort to reassert control after Wagner incited an armed rebellion

From CNN's Christian Edwards

Wagner fighters prepare to pull out from the headquarters of the Southern Military District in Rostov-on-Don to return to their base on Saturday, June 24.

For two days after  Wagner  chief Yevgeny Prigozhin called off his  abortive mutiny , Russian President Vladimir Putin said nothing in public. Having faced the greatest challenge to his authority in 23 years, and almost witnessed his country tip into civil war, many expected the president to respond with sound and fury.

Instead, the silence was broken first by his adversary. In an 11-minute audio message posted to his Telegram channel, Prigozhin claimed to have merely staged a protest, rather than a coup, attempting to “bring to justice” Russia’s top military brass for their “mistakes during the special military operation.”

When Putin finally  addressed the nation  again on Monday, he was remarkably clement. The last time he had been seen on Saturday, he told the nation that Prigozhin’s mutiny was “a stab in the back of our country and our people,” and promised to hold the insurgents “accountable.”

“Putin values loyalty above all else,” Dmitri Alperovitch, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, told CNN. “You can steal under him, you can kill, you can be a criminal. But the one thing you cannot be is disloyal.” Given this, Putin’s apparent reluctance to punish the insurgents seemed puzzling.

But, according to Kirill Shamiev, a fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, Putin’s first priority will be to “demilitarize, disarm and demobilize the Wagner group,” before issuing any potential punishment.

“On the tactical level, it’s important to pacify a bit, to make it calm, to give some hope and benefits to the ordinary Wagner mercenaries and senior command, to reduce their incentives to act,” Shamiev told CNN.
