Quote: "With respect to the reports [in the media – ed.] obviously that Yevgeny Prigozhin and Vladimir Putin were at odds with each other, now we see them meeting with them."

Details: Miller emphasised that the assessments of the US side remain the same as at the beginning of the situation with the rebellion in Russia, "There are no heroes in the struggle between the two of them.  These are both people who have committed atrocities or ordered the commission of atrocities in Ukraine".

Miller also expressed his belief that this is obviously not the last development of the story with Prigozhin.

Previously: Before that, the French newspaper Libération had reported, citing sources in Western intelligence, that Prigozhin was in Moscow and had met with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on 1 July.

The Russian dictator's spokesman Dmitry Peskov has confirmed that Vladimir Putin met Prigozhin after the mutiny.
