MOSCOW, February 27 – RIA Novosti. The press service of the Concord company, which belongs to Yevgeny Prigozhin, demanded the promised reward from the FBI for publishing the address where the businessman can be found.
As stated in the message published on the social network “VKontakte”, Prigozhin can be found at the address: St. Petersburg, Lieutenant Schmidt Embankment, Building 7. “We ask you to pay us 250 thousand dollars for the information provided,” the press service of the company said …
Earlier, the FBI announced the search for Russian citizens, including businessman Prigozhin, in the case of “interference in the elections” in 2016. For providing information that will help his detention, the department promised to provide a reward in the amount of a quarter of a million dollars.
Criminal case against Prigogine
Earlier, the United States opened a criminal case against Prigozhin for allegedly interfering with the 2016 presidential election in the United States.
As noted in the press service of the “Concord” company, in the summer, Interpol studied the arguments and case materials and excluded the entrepreneur from the database. The organization came to the conclusion that the criminal case against Prigozhin is political, and the demand of the American Ministry of Justice to include him in the database is contrary to the rules of Interpol.
In March last year, Washington dropped the charge in this criminal case against Concord Management and Consulting LLC.
Prigozhin expressed the opinion that the American authorities are using the theme of the “Russian threat” to cover up corruption and justify the “witch hunt.”
