In a surprising event in affect the Russia Ukraine War, a privatized military group known as the Wagner Group, with leader Yevgeny Prigozhin, has turned against Russia. They claim that Russia had sent missiles that hit many of their soldiers, and want those responsible to pay. The Group has currently entered Rostov-on-Don in Russia, where a Russian military base is, and are preparing to march towards the Russian government, The Kremlin in Moscow.
How far is Rostov-on Don from Moscow?
Keep in mind the Wagner Group is already in Russia. And they could March into the center of Russia in a day or two. Google Maps says its about a 12 hour drive from Rostov-on to Moscow. The distance between Moscow and Rostov-on-Don can also vary depending on transportation and the specific route taken. Generally, the distance is approximately 1,080 kilometers (670 miles) when traveling by road. By train, the distance is around 1,220 kilometers (760 miles). So as you can see, there aren’t that far.
Is Russia Close To Civil War?
Russia could be on the brink of civil war. Prigozhin has called for support and has 25,000 troops on his side already. The Wagner group has yet to face any opposition, even though Putin has called for his capture. Over the next couple days we will see how the situation develops. But it could be the beginning of a new Russia, and the end of the Ukraine War. Besides civil war, there is a chance a less hostile take over could happen and a new leader steps up for Russia.
