Why did Mravinsky refuse to conduct the premiere of Shostakovich's Thirteenth Symphony in 1962?

The emboldened sentence below isn't evidenced on Wikipedia. Is it true? If so, why?

Yevgeny Mravinsky - Wikipedia

The music of Dmitri Shostakovich was closely associated with Mravinsky, beginning with conducting the world premiere of the composer's Fifth Symphony. The conductor would subsequently lead the world premieres of the Sixth, Eighth (which Shostakovich dedicated to Mravinsky), Ninth, Tenth, and Twelfth Symphonies, as well as the Song of the Forests, Violin Concerto No. 1 , and Cello Concerto No. 1. **His refusal to conduct the premiere of Shostakovich's Thirteenth Symphony in 1962 caused a permanent rupture in their friendship. **Of the remaining Shostakovich symphonies which he did not premiere, Mravinsky only performed (and recorded) the Seventh, Eleventh, and Fifteenth.[2][3]
