Moscow to bring in ‘anti-terrorist’ measures to stop ‘mutiny’ | World | News
Moscow is set to introduce “anti-terror” measures as Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin seeks to oust Russia’s defense secretary. Prigozhin claims that Russia bombed his camp and killed 2,000 fighters.
As a result, Wagner’s founder allegedly took his troops across the Russian border, sparking widespread fears of a military coup. Since the forces seem to have crossed the border, a helicopter has been shot down in Rostov, and armed men have been seen in the area around the police station.
Experts believe that Wagner’s troops may be trying to make their way to the north-south route area of the M-4. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has now issued a warning to families not to travel around the city.
Writing on Telegram, he said: “In connection with the incoming information, anti-terrorist measures are being taken in Moscow aimed at strengthening security measures.
“Additional control has been introduced on the roads.
“The holding of public events can be limited.
“Please consider the measures taken.”
Meanwhile the governor of Lipetsk confirmed that the M-4 is closed.
Prigozhin apparently sent an armed convoy of his mercenary fighters on a 1,200km (750 mile) drive towards Moscow, after announcing his intention to overthrow the military leadership.
