Wagner fighters were leaving Russia's southern Voronezh region on June 25, the local governor said, after the group halted a dramatic rebellion to bring down Russia's top brass and U-turned on a march to Moscow.

"The movement of Wagner units through the Voronezh region is ending," Voronezh governor Alexander Gusev said.
