For few dollars more: Putin’s chef offers $500,000 for capturing MBK in response to the FBI

March 2, 2021

Yevgeny Prigozhin issued a statement on FBI’s announcement that the United States is offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to Prigozhin’s arrest. In the statement released through an official account of his company, “Putin’s chef” in response to FBI’s reward offered a $500,000 bounty for MBK’s capture by a Russian citizen.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky shared the following comment:

“Putin’s chef Prigozhin was so worried about the trouble caused to him by the FBI that he put out a bounty on my head. $500,000.

Generally speaking, when a public institution offers money for information, it is called а reward. But when a private individual like Prigozhin does it, it is a criminal contract.

Putin’s chef’s criminal record is well known. Here’s an extract from his sentence. “Prigozhin continued to strangle Koroleva until she fainted. She was then stripped of her boots and gold earrings.”

As you can see, Prigozhin has matured. He is no longer about boots and earrings, but a proper contract for either kidnapping or murder.

You can take a guy out of a St.Petersburg back alley. But you can’t take the back alley out of him.”
