A photo posted online appears to show a Russian general who has not been seen in public since a mutiny by the Wagner mercenary group in June.

Sergei Surovikin is said to have been close to Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin, who died in a plane crash last month.

There have been reports that Gen Surovikin is being investigated for possible complicity in the mutiny.

But a photo purporting to show Russia's former commander in Ukraine has now been published on social media.
