On the anniversary of Prigozhin's rebellion in St. Petersburg, his associates were detained

In St. Petersburg, on the anniversary of Yevgeny Prigozhin’s rebellion, the head of his “troll factory” Ilya Gorbunov and media manager Kirill Metelev were detained. According to the Fontanka publication, they are suspected of extorting the former general director of the St. Petersburg TV channel, Alexander Malkevich. Malkevich, in turn, was also previously associated with Prigozhin, heading the USA Really website, which is a subsidiary project of RIA FAN.

According to sources, Gorbunov and Metelev are suspected of extorting Malkevich. In particular, according to sources, the detainees tried to obtain a large sum of money from the former general director of the TV channel. Malkevich previously worked on various projects associated with Prigozhin, which makes this case even more significant in the context of the anniversary of the rebellion.

The VChK-OGPU Telegram channel claims that Ilya Gorbunov played a key role in the media coverage of Prigozhin’s rebellion, which began exactly a year ago. Gorbunov, according to sources, coordinated the work of all media resources associated with Prigozhin and ensured the dissemination of information about the rebellion.
