Special services activated: Wagner convoy moves towards Russia

The head of the mercenary group Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin has died in a plane crash. Also on board was the co-founder of the mercenary group, Dmitry Utkin. It is unclear what will happen to the Wagner mercenaries now and how they will react to the death of their leaders.

As n-tv.de reports with reference to the National Resistance Center of Ukraine, an organization of the Ukrainian military, a convoy of Wagner mercenaries is said to have started moving in Belarus to leave the country. Some Wagner camps in Belarus had already been broken up last night. The Wagner mercenaries are probably on their way to the Russian border. “The convoys are probably heading towards the border with the Russian Federation, but the special services of the Republic of Belarus are trying to prevent the vehicles of the mercenaries from leaving the country,” it says in the report.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
