Wagner PMC claims Russia's Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov fled the Rostov MoD headquarters and is trying to hide in his friend's apartment in the city.

President Vladimir Putin will "soon" address the nation, the Kremlin said Saturday, as Russia faced a rebellion by the Wagner mercenary group that has vowed to topple Moscow's military leadership.

The Russian MoD says members of Wagner PMC 'have been tricked into taking part in Prigozhin’s criminal gamble,' adding that some fighters 'have already understood their mistake' and asked authorities for help in safely returning to their permanent deployment areas.
