Indicted Russian Oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin Accused of Ordering Attacks on Opponents
Sergei Ilnitsky/APA Russian oligarch charged in the U.S. with trying to sway the 2016 election ordered "at least one killing" and attacks on several of his opponents, according to a report in a Russian newspaper.

Yevgeny Prigozhin was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller's team in February for allegedly funding a St. Petersburg-based troll farm called the "Internet Research Agency." His bookkeeper, Elena Khusyaynova, was charged Friday with managing money at the troll farm, which prosecutors say attempted to sow discord in U.S. politics through social media.

Prigozhin—an ally of Vladimir Putin who became known as the Russian president's "chef" because he caters events at the Kremlin—now stands accused by a former security aid of playing a central role in deadly violence against his adversaries, according to an Associated Press report based on an article published Monday by The Novaya Gazeta, an independent Russian publication.
