Moscow mayor declares Monday ‘non-working day’ to minimise risks

The Reuters news agency has filed some images of Wagner fighters in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, which Wagner boss Yevgeny Progozhin says his forces now control.

The mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, has just put out a statement on Telegram announcing that “a counter-terrorist operation regime has been declared in Moscow” and that Monday will be a “non-working day” to “minimise risks”.

He asked Muscovites to “refrain from travelling around the city as much as possible”.

“City services are on high alert,” he said.

Wagner mercenaries appear to be moving north from central regions of Russia, in the direction of the capital.
