Following the analogy between primes and knots, we introduce the refined Milnor invariants for prime numbers and establish their connection with certain Massey products in Galois cohomology. This generalizes the well-known relation between the power residue symbol and cup product and gives a cohomological interpretation of L. Rédei's triple symbol.
