In Voronezh, Wagner mercenaries took control of all military facilities, Reuters reports citing a source in the Russian special services. Also, this information is confirmed by the BBC, citing a source close to the central office of the FSB.
According to him, they do not yet have a specific plan to suppress the rebellion of the Wagner PMC.
Earlier, a counter-terrorist operation regime was introduced in the Voronezh region.
Meanwhile, a channel close to PMC Wagner reports that Russian servicemen at the border crossing (Bugaevka) refused to interfere with the actions of the PMC:
Vladimir Putin in an emergency speech called the actions of Yevgeny Prigozhin a betrayal and betrayal of the country, the people and the fighters of the Wagner PMC. He promised that all who embarked on the path of rebellion "will suffer inevitable punishment."
“Internal turmoil is a mortal threat to our statehood. And our actions will be tough. All those who consciously embarked on the path of betrayal will suffer inevitable punishment. They will answer before the law and before our people. The armed forces have received appropriate orders,” Putin said.
He also added that "decisive actions will be taken to stabilize the situation in Rostov-on-Don." According to him, the situation there "remains difficult - the work of civil and military authorities is practically blocked."
