MOSCOW — Russian mutineering Wagner mercenaries are “moving across” the Lipetsk region some 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Moscow, the governor says, en route to Moscow after vowing to overthrow Russia’s military leadership.

“Hardware of the Wagner mercenary group is moving across the territory of the Lipetsk region,” Governor Igor Artamonov says on Telegram. “I remind you that residents are strongly recommended not to leave their houses or to make trips on any mode of transport.”
