Alexander Ionov statement on facebook:
Russin citizen Evonov said on Facebook.
Mr. Alexander Ionov said: “I have never met such nonsense and deception.
“There are no specific names of officials, there is no evidence of funding and there are no intelligible arguments.”
He added: “The Ukrainian crisis has driven American officials crazy! Comrades, now you see what kind of ‘democracy’ exists in the USA!”
Ivanov is currently in Russia and the case will be prosecuted without his presence in court. this seems like a joke though. Ivanov will be protected by Putin and Biden will look weak.
The Treasury Department says Mr. Ionov “sought to collaborate with Prigozhin’s Foundation for Battling Injustice (FBR) about the feasibility of directly supporting a specific candidate in a 2022 US gubernatorial election”.
