Russian special services are investigating whether Western intelligence services were involved in the events which unfolded in Russia Saturday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in video comments to Russia Today.
Russia often alleges foreign interference in domestic ongoings. Lavrov did not immediately present evidence or further information of that alleged investigation.
However, he noted that the US ambassador to Russia signaled that the US had "nothing to do" with the events.
"And it was especially emphasized: the United States proceeds from the fact that everything that happens is an internal affair of the Russian Federation," he added in a video that was seemingly taped Sunday and released on state-controlled broadcaster Russia Today Monday.
This comes after Wagner founder Yevgeny Prigozhin allegedly incited an armed rebellion, but then stood down and accepted a deal to leave Russia for Belarus, according to the Kremlin.
