The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, wrote on his Telegram channel that the actions of his fighters were effective. On June 24 they were sent to Rostov-on-Don.
According to him, the Kadyrovites "brilliantly fulfilled their task," since "any initiative in a residential city could lead to mass casualties." At the same time, Kadyrov noted that the locations of the "Wagnerites" in the "Zone of the Northern Military District" were allegedly held by Chechen reserve groups.
The main merit of the Kadyrovites was that they "arrived promptly and waited for the order." Kadyrov thanked Allah for the fact that the situation ended without direct clashes with Prigozhin's mercenaries.
Earlier on June 24, the Kadyrovites filmed a video showing them standing in a traffic jam 87 km from Rostov-on-Don. Apparently, they never made it to the city that day. On the other hand, on the morning of June 25, Kadyrov’s units had already filmed a pathetic video on a bridge in Kolomna near Moscow, saying that they were allegedly defending it from “traitors, traitors to the Motherland, whoever they may be.” There were no Prigogine formations in Kolomna.
On June 24, the head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, after statements that the places of deployment of his mercenaries were fired upon by the forces of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, began the "March of Justice" to Moscow. His forces entered Rostov-on-Don, and also moved towards the capital through the Voronezh and Lipetsk regions.
At the end of the day, the press service of Alexander Lukashenko announced that, on behalf of Putin, he managed to agree with Prigozhin to stop the movement of "Wagnerites" in Russia. Later, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that all charges against the head of the Wagner PMC would be dropped, and he would “go to Belarus.”
