Russia’s “General Armageddon” has been missing for ten days after the failed mutiny by paramilitary group Wagner.

Sergey Surovikin, the former Russian supreme commander in Ukraine, was accused of siding with mercenary chief Yevgeny Prigozhin during the uprising.

There are reports speculating about his arrest and subsequent release, but these are as yet unconfirmed.

He has not been seen since June 24, according to the UK Defense Ministry, but officials stressed that any sanctions on record against him would be “divisive” as he is one of the most respected senior officers in the Russian military.

Surovikin’s deputy defense minister, Colonel-General Yunus-bek Yevkurov, was “remarkably absent from a July 3 television appearance by the Defense Ministry leadership,” the UK MoD said.

Away from the unrest in Russia, there have been reports of long queues at the Ukraine-Moldova border amid a “serious threat” at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant.

According to Sky News reports, several Ukrainians are now fleeing to neighboring allies.

However, Daniel Voda, a spokesman for the Moldovan government, stressed that an increase in the number of border crossings was due to the summer holidays.

Figures analyzed by show there hasn’t been a drastic increase in border crossings over the last 72 hours.
