A “coup d’etat” has been formerly declared in the Russian Federation by the Freedom of Russia Legion who started launching attacks inside the country last month.
The Legion has called on all Russian soldiers and army officers to “unleash your weapons on the Kremlin” which comes as Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prighozin along with thousands of Wagnerites are heading to Moscow.
The Legion said that Vladimir Putin has had “20 years of chances” and during that period he has robbed “people in other countries, to rape civilians in Ukraine, but not to protect his people.”
In a statement the Freedom of Russia Legion said, “On the battlefield, Prigozhin and I are enemies, but now he is telling the truth: about how cowardly generals send hundreds of thousands of Russians to their deaths as cannon fodder.
