Evgenij Prigozhin has reportedly been arrested: this is the latest news from Moscow about the fate of the head of the Wagner Group. The news must be taken with due caution because there is currently no official confirmation. From what is known, the Wagner mercenaries are still on their way to Moscow.
In the city, however, life is relatively calm, apart from the police and military who are guarding sensitive points with several checkpoints. According to the BBC, public buildings have been evacuated.
