Wagner fighters took Rostov army HQ without firing a shot: Prigozhin

MUTINOUS Russian mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin says his troops did not need to fire a single shot when they took control of the headquarters of Russia’s Southern Military District in Rostov.

However, he said his men had been fired on by artillery and helicopters en route to Rostov.

He said he thought he had the support of the Russian people for what he calls his “march of justice”.

Meanwhile, Washington said will stay “in close coordination” with its Group of Seven allies amid the unfolding crisis in Russia, where Wagner mercenaries launched a mutiny, officials have said.

State Department Spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement that support for Ukraine “will not change”.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken also said he spoke with G7 foreign ministers and the EU high representative for foreign affairs.

“The United States will stay in close coordination with allies and partners as the situation continues to develop,” Blinken wrote on Twitter.
