Slovakia and Poland concur that events in Russia have no impact on their security

Slovak President Zuzana Caputova today, Sunday, held talks with her Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda, during which they discussed the situation in Russia after the armed rebellion announced by the Wagner group on Saturday.

During the conversation, the parties agreed that the development of the situation in Russia does not threaten the security of Slovakia and Poland, but it is necessary to follow the development of events.

“Despite the fact that events in Russia do not directly threaten Slovakia and Poland, we agreed that future events should be closely monitored,” Chaputova wrote on Facebook after a telephone conversation with her Polish counterpart.

She indicated that she had discussed with Duda the development of the situation in Russia and Belarus and its potential impact on the eastern borders of NATO.

In this regard, Slovak Prime Minister Ludovit Odor said on Saturday that the Slovak Security Council will discuss current events in Russia next week.

Early on the morning of Saturday, June 24, the troops of the Wagner Special Military Group captured the headquarters of the Southern Military District in the Rostov Region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the actions of the rebels a criminal adventure, a stab in the back of Russia and high treason.

The FSB of Russia also opened a case against the founder of Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, on charges of organizing an “armed rebellion.”

Later, on Saturday, the press service of the President of Belarus reported that the founder of the Wagner group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, accepted Lukashenka’s proposal to stop the movement of the group’s militants in Russia and take further steps to reduce tensions.

She noted that this morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin informed his Belarusian counterpart about the situation in southern Russia with PMC Wagner, and the leaders of the two countries agreed to work together.

This was followed by a personal statement by Prigozhin to stop the movement of his troops towards Moscow, confirming that they had turned around and were now leaving in the opposite direction, returning to their camps on the lines of contact.
