Belarus trying to block Wagner's move towards Russia: Sources

Wagner troops deployed in Belarus were allegedly mobilized after reports emerged that Yevgeny Prigozhin, the leader of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, had died, BBC reported.

The Wagner convoy has moved towards the Russian border, but Belarusian special forces are trying to prevent the vehicles from crossing, the BBC quoted the Ukrainian National Resistance Centre as saying.

Yesterday, threatening messages were shared on Telegram channels close to Wagner, "If Prigojin's death is confirmed, we will move to Russia".

However, some Wagner channels directly threatened Putin.

 "The Kremlin will be taken over! If Prigojin's death is confirmed, we will take action,” they said.

BELARUS HAD BEEN MEDIATOR

Wagner attempted a coup d'état on June 24, which lasted 24 hours. The coup ended with the intervention of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. With the mediation of Lukashenko, Wagner leader Yevgeny Progozhin and Russian President Vladimir Putin sat at the negotiating table.

In accordance with the agreement reached between Prigojin and Putin, Wagner's troops left Russian territory and settled in Belarus.
