Latest Developments Of Wagner Mercenaries’ Rebelion Against Russian Army, June 24

Saturday 24 June 2023 - 18:44

– Governor of Voronezh province Alexander Gusev announced the closure of more than 300 kilometers of the M-4 Don highway (the road connecting to Moscow) in the province. He also asked the citizens of the region to refrain from traveling on the regional and local roads.

Taking into account the latest circumstances of the Wagner Group’s mercenaries in the cities of Rostov-on-Don and Pavlovsk, the Wagner forces are hundreds of kilometers away from the capital Moscow (approximately 610 kilometers from the city of Pavlovsk and 950 kilometers from the city of Rostov-on-Don).

According to a decree by Russian President Vladimir Putin to confront the Wagner rebellion forces, if they intend to enter Moscow, must cross a long route that is under the control of the Russian army and security forces, which seems to be almost impossible.

-The Wagner Group’s forces shot down a Mi-8 helicopter of the Russian armed forces.

Earlier, Head of the Wagner Group Yevgeny Prigozhin informed of the shooting down of a helicopter that intended to attack the Wagner forces. It is not clear yet whether the helicopter is the same one that Prigozhin had reported that it had been ruined or it is a second helicopter that is shot down by Wagner.

The place where the helicopter crashed

-There has been released a video of fire and crash of an Ilyushin 18 or Antonov 26 aircraft of the Russian Air Force in an unidentified area.
The cause of the plane crash is not clear and some Russian sources mentioned the possibility that it has been hit by Wagner forces.

– An explosion occurred at an oil depot in the city of Voronezh, coinciding with the flight of Kamov Ka-50 helicopters, raising the suspicion that the explosion was caused by the helicopter attack. However, the truth is that the helicopters used chaff and flare at the same time as the explosion of the oil depot occurred. Perhaps the helicopters were looking for Wagner agents and resorted to such acts to escape from heat-seeking missiles and so on.

– Video: Unsuccessful launch of the 9K35 Strela-10 (a Soviet highly mobile and short-range surface-to-air missile system) by Wagner forces towards a Kamov Ka-52 helicopter of the Russian army

-A video of an air strike by a fighter jet of the Russian army on a convoy of Wagner forces on the M4 highway on Saturday morning.

– Head of Chechnya Republic Ramzan Kadyrov announced the dispatch of military forces from the Ministry of Defense and the National Guard of Chechnya to the city of Rostov-on-Don. The city is under the control of Wagner mercenaries; so, it seems to be probable that we witness heavy clashes between Chechens and Wagner forces in the coming hours.

Kadyrov is one of the main opponents of the head of the Wagner Group, who opposed Yevgeny Prigozhin when he tried to criticize Russia’s management of the war in Ukraine and the Chechnya’s official repeatedly demanded replacing his forces with Wagner mercenaries.

In the military dispute between Russia’s Shoigu-Gerasimov front, which are enemies of Wagner today, Kadyrov takes the side of the Russian military officials and he has undoubtedly been preparing for the Rostov-on-Don battle for a long time.

– Suspicious flights of transport aircraft and presidential fleet of Russia from Moscow to St. Petersburg and unknown destinations in northwestern Russia

One of those flights is the Russian Ilyushin 96 presidential aircraft, which some Russian sources claim is carrying Vladimir Putin.

Putin’s departure from Moscow (if true) raises many questions: Could Wagner Group with only 25,000 forces (as Prigozhin claims) overcome the Russian government forces and easily advance to the gates of the capital? Is Wagner’s rebellion a misleading plan for a bigger action in the war in Ukraine? The questions are all important issues that we would reach their answers in the coming hours.

– The news about the widespread flight of IRGC and Iranian army planes and the sending of military forces to Moscow is not true.
