Wladimir Putin schört den Aufstand zu zerschlagen

By Jordi Bou

June 24, 2023 - Präsident Wladimir Putin hat geschworen, den bewaffneten Aufstand zu zerschlagen, nachdem der Chef der Wagner Gruppe, Jewgeny Prighozin die Kontrolle von Militäranlagen übernommen hat, er will die militärische Führung von Russland absetzen.

Yevgeny Prigozhin accuses Russia’s military leadership of killing large number of his fighters in an air strike in Ukraine. He has threatened to march on Moscow unless he meets Russia's defence minister.

Wagner fighters are in control of Rostov-on-Don, a city of more than a million people close to the border with Ukraine, and are rapidly advancing northwards through western Russia.

Reports say that Wagner mercenaries have seized military facilities in Voronezh, which is halfway between Rostov and Moscow.
