The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) has reported that Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the Wagner mercenary force, claimed that his recent actions were agreed upon by Wagner commanders and were designed to stop “the evil brought by the military leadership” in Moscow, who he accused of allowing Russian soldiers to die in Ukraine.

Prigozhin also accused Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu of personally planning an operation to destroy Wagner and claimed that 25,000 Wagner personnel are prepared to act.

The ISW also noted that Prigozhin claimed his actions were not a “coup”, only a “march for justice”.

Meanwhile, authorities in Russia’s southern Lipetsk region have tightened security measures following claims that Wagner mercenaries had crossed the border from Ukraine.

The White House is monitoring the situation in Russia, and the governor of Russia’s southern Rostov region has told residents to remain calm and stay indoors.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is being given regular updates on the unfolding tensions between the mercenary group Wagner and the defence ministry, the Kremlin said.

Wagner boss Prigozhin has promised to take all necessary steps to topple Russia’s military leadership, saying his forces would “destroy everything” in their way.

Russia has accused Prigozhin of launching an armed mutiny after he promised to punish military leaders whom he accused of killing 2,000 of his fighters.
