“On September 7, Yevgeny Prigozhin transferred 1 million rubles to the Charité for the treatment of Navalny. All this time we made inquiries about whether the clinic received money. The answer was never received. The payment was returned today. Most likely, for one of the following reasons: the first - Yevgeny Prigozhin is under sanctions, the second - in case of receiving money, the clinic will have to report to him for them, "- said in" Concord ".

The press service of Prigozhin's company also said that the Charite doctors "do not want to disclose the details of Navalny's poisoning and treatment to Yevgeny Viktorovich."

On August 31, bailiffs wrote off a little more than 107 rubles ($ 1422) from the account of opposition politician Alexei Navalny to collect debt to pro-Kremlin businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. This amount was transferred by Prigozhin to the account of the Charite clinic.

On September 7, Prigozhin sent another tranche of 1 million rubles ($ 13) to the hospital. At the same time, the press service of "Concorde" reported that Charité reported on the previous spent funds.

Who is Prigozhin, and why is he called "Putin's chef"

The US government and Congress associate Prigozhin with the activities of the Internet Research Agency, interference in the US elections, as well as with military mercenaries from the private military company (PMC) Wagner and operations in 20 countries around the world, including Libya, Syria, the Central African Republic and Sudan.

According to "New Newspaper", US Senators Chris Koons and Marco Rubio, members of the Foreign Affairs Committee, cite a list of charges against the businessman and the PMC he "allegedly" finances. This is what the resolution notes:

  • The Wagner Group, a Russian military mercenary organization staffed by current and former military and intelligence officers, “participated in the military takeover and illegal annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region in February and March 2014, and in subsequent riots in eastern Ukraine, in Donetsk and Luhansk.
  • She also provides military support to the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria; in 2015, she helped the president return a significant part of the country's territory.
  • On February 7, 2018, the Wagner Group launched an armed attack on US troops near the town of Deir ezzur in eastern Syria, "prompting the United States to launch a counterattack," which the Washington Post described as "the deadliest US-Russian clash since the Cold War. war ".
  • The Wagner Group supported Khalifa Haftar and his Libyan National Army by providing mercenaries, artillery, tanks, drones and ammunition in violation of the UN arms embargo. Yevgeny Prigozhin personally attended a meeting between Haftar and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in Moscow on November 7, 2018.
  • Evgeny Prigozhin and related persons are involved in operations on behalf of the Russian government in Africa. About 235 Russian military private security guards have been deployed in the Central African Republic since 2017, some of them providing personal security for President Faustin-Arcanji Touadera. Russian citizen Valery Zakharov, a former intelligence officer, has served as security advisor to the CAR president since 2018. In July 2018, Russian journalists Orkhan Dzhemal, Kirill Radchenko and Alexander Rastorguev were killed in the Central African Republic while working on a documentary about the group's activities. Neither the government of the Central African Republic nor the government of the Russian Federation conducted credible and thorough investigations into the killing of the three journalists.

Prigozhin is also called “Putin's chef”: at one time, the businessman's company was engaged in catering for the highest officials of the state in Russia.
