As clashes between Wagner militia group and Russian armed forces continue to escalate, the Kremlin called the paramilitary organization's actions an "armed rebellion" on Saturday, June 24.

The Wagner Group's leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin, has refused to back down and is threatening to march his forces on Moscow itself, as one Russian city, Rostov-on-Don, has already come under the military control of Wagner.

As rumors suggest that Wagner's mercenary group is moving towards the capital, Putin ordered Russian troops to set up roadblocks and checkpoints around Moscow.

As RadarOnline reported, Pro-Putin forces have also raided the Wagner unit's headquarters in St Petersburg after Prigozhin captured the Southern Defense Command in Rostov-on-Don, which played a significant role in the invasion of Ukraine. The Russian Security Service said it had found $47 million in cash during the raid, which Prigozhin claimed was for salaries and other expenses for his men.
