Is the country threatened with civil war?
I see the situation easing again. The "coup" has a similar aura to the attempted coup in Turkey in 2016. At that time, Erdogan succeeded in regaining control, and in the end it even consolidated his position.

There is much more staging in politics than one might imagine.
For Putin, it is less a matter of regaining control of the situation (if he ever lost it) than of redefining the rules externally.
