Dmitry Medvedev spoke about the attempted coup by the head of the Wagner group, Yevgeny Prigozhin. Although the vice-chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation argued that in the face of the crisis, the Russians should fully trust their leader, he was one of the first to leave the capital.
Much of the information reported by Russian state media or Kremlin officials is probably not true. Such reports may be part of an information war on the part of the Russian Federation.
“Now the most important thing for defeating the external and internal enemy, who is hungry to tear our homeland apart, for saving our country, is to focus on the President, the Supreme Commander of the country's armed forces,” the Kremlin politician wrote on his channel in the Telegram application.
“Split and betrayal – the way to the greatest tragedy, universal catastrophe. We will not allow this. The enemy will be defeated! Victory will be ours!” - added.
According to the latest media reports, Medvedev left Moscow. “The source of the Cheka-OGPU reported that Dmitry Medvedev, his family and assistants were 'evacuated' from the Moscow region. Earlier, the source reported that the helicopter was supposed to fly to Valdai (Novgorod region – editorial note) with Putin,” the Rucriminal channel reads .info in the Telegram app.
As it turns out, the former president is not the only one – although one of the first – who decided to escape. Increased traffic of private jets belonging to oligarchs has been observed in Moscow.
The head of the Wagner group said on Friday that the Russian army units attacked his mercenaries. Yevgeny Prigozhin called for a rebellion and the overthrow of the Russian defense minister. Kremlin officials immediately reacted to Prigozhin's statement, and the FSB appealed to the Wagnerians: “Do not make an irreparable mistake.”
The situation in Russia is very tense, chaos reigns in many places. Vladimir Putin assured that all those who “entered the path of blackmail and terrorist threats will be punished.”
— Any internal riots are a deadly threat to our statehood as a nation. They are a blow to Russia, to our people and our actions to protect our homeland,” he added.
