Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday ordered the reinforcement of forces in northern Ukraine. This happens after Wagner’s chief Yevgeny Prigozhin moved from Russia to Belarus.
And Prigozhin sent his mercenaries towards Moscow late last week after another clash with the Russian defense commander, but ended the uprising after the mediation of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. According to the deal, Prigozhin would not be tried and allowed to leave for Belarus with his mercenaries. According to Lukashenko, he is now getting there.
Ukraine has already beefed up its military presence on the border with Belarus. Although Belarus itself is not directly involved in the war between Ukraine and Russia, it allowed Russian forces to enter Ukraine from Belarusian territory in February last year. Russian attacks on Ukraine have also been carried out from Belarus.
At the same time, Russia’s media watchdog on Friday banned media organizations linked to Prigozhin, the Russian newspaper reported compelling.
According to the newspaper, anyone who wants to visit the websites of organizations in Russia will receive a message stating that they have been blocked. No information is shared about the cause. Sieges are likely to go back to the events of last week.
