Kremlin, asked about mutiny, says Russian intelligence services are working well

The Kremlin said on Monday that all government agencies and ministries, including the intelligence services, were and had been working as they should, in the context of an aborted armed mutiny by mercenary fighters on June 24.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment when asked why the FSB security service had not headed the mutiny off before it began, however, but said society and the armed forces had rallied behind President Vladimir Putin at the time.

Asked why state funds had been used to finance the Wagner mercenary group that mutinied, Peskov also declined to comment.
