Latest reports on the situation in Russia

There is peace and security and cars are moving.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): The head of the Wagner group, which plays an active role in the war in Ukraine, has accused the Russian Ministry of Defense of a missile attack on the headquarters of these forces. Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of Wagner's militia group, claimed on Friday that the Russian army killed two thousands of Wagner's forces.
After this claim, he ordered an uprising against the military authorities of this country and it is reported that his forces have entered the Rostov region bordering Ukraine.
At the same time, Vladimir Putin also said in his speech that he talked to the commanders of all sides last night and that the army forces are fighting heroically.
He stressed that any conflict should be avoided during the special operation, because the fate of the Russian people is now being decided.
Saying that what we are facing today is internal treason, the Russian president has said: "I warn the Wagner fighters not to give in to criminal adventure when Russia is facing a difficult war."
He said, "Armed rebellion is a stab in the back and we will defend ourselves." "The traitors will be punished for their work."
Meanwhile, the Russian authorities accused Prigozhin of organizing an armed rebellion and filed a case against him.
Earlier; The Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that Prigozhin's accusations "are not true and are a media sensation."
The ministry said that all the messages and video frames distributed by Yevgeny Prigozhin on social networks about the claim of "the attack of the Russian Ministry of Defense on the rear camps of PMC Wagner" do not correspond to reality and are an intelligence provocation.
Russia's Anti-Terrorism Committee also said in a statement that the FSB has opened a court case against Wagner's "incitement to armed rebellion". This committee said that it wants to stop the illegal actions as soon as possible.
It is worth noting; Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu recently ordered all volunteer and militia groups fighting for Russia in the Ukraine war to sign contracts with the Ministry of Defense by the end of August.
This action of Shoigu was an attempt to reduce Prigozhin's authority and prevent his arbitrariness.
In response to this order, Prigogine announced that "Wagner will not sign any contract with Shoigu."
But soon Putin reacted and took the defense minister's side. Putin said that this order should be implemented by the deadline. After that, Prigozhin also criticized Putin.
I have to say; The Wagner group is a paramilitary group indirectly affiliated with the Russian army that participates in proxy wars by recruiting volunteers.
