No change in Russia’s nuclear posture, U.S. government says

(CNN, KYMA/KECY) - The U.S. government is continuing to monitor developments in Russia amidst the turmoil that unfolded on Saturday.

Two officials tell CNN that the U.S. government has not seen a change in Russia's nuclear posture despite what happened earlier on Saturday, when the head of the Wagner Paramilitary Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, threatened to march to Moscow and topple the country's military leaders.

Priogozhin agreed to leave Russia and settle in Belarus, and the situation at least for now appears resolved.

A State Department spokesman said the United States has not adjusted its conventional or nuclear forces in response to Saturday's developments.

The U.S. says it is in regular communication with its Russian counterparts.
