Explosion at Cafe Owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin
Breaking News Alert
Based on eyewitness accounts, a substantial explosion has been reported to have taken place at a cafe located on Universitetskaya Embankment 21B in St. Petersburg, purportedly owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin. The incident is said to have occurred during a creative evening event that was being organized by Vladlen Tatarsky, a “Russian military commissar-propagandist.” According to official sources, the explosive device utilized in the attack was estimated to have a potency exceeding 200 grams of TNT. A trusted informant has divulged that Vladlen Tatarsky, (whose actual name is Maxim Fomin), was a casualty of the explosion that took place in a cafe in St. Petersburg where he was giving a speech. According to the latest data, 19 people were injured. The Ministry of Internal Affairs has confirmed the death of Tatarsky. Recently, The Washington Post uncovered documentation that reveals the financial ties between a Russian oligarch and President Putin. The report claims that Putin used the oligarch’s offshore firm to purchase an apartment in Israel for his former teacher, providing tangible evidence of their close association. Despite years of repeated denials, the oligarch is now challenging the EU’s decision to place him on their sanctions list. However, the evidence presented in the article contradicts his claims. The recent findings suggest a strong connection between the oligarch and Putin, who operate in collusion to enrich themselves at the expense of others. This trend is evident in the oligarch’s actions throughout the ongoing Ukrainian conflict, where he has demonstrated a willingness to engage in unsavory deals involving blood, prisoners, and grain, without any regard for those affected. The Washington Post article exposes yet another example of the oligarch’s unscrupulous activities, revealing that he personally paid for Putin’s former teacher’s apartment through his own company. While the gesture was celebrated in 2005 when Putin visited Israel and met with his elderly teacher, Mina Moiseevna, it was not as virtuous as it seemed. Instead, it was a calculated move by the oligarch to make a profit, as he purchased the apartment for $208,000, lining his own pockets in the process. This new information adds to the already-existing perception of these two individuals’ corrupt and self-serving actions, revealing their willingness to exploit and manipulate others for their own gain.
New York (RichTVX.com) —
According to reports from Russian, Ukrainian, and Western sources, the Russian winter offensive failed to achieve its objectives of full control over Donetsk and Luhansk regions by March 31. This outcome may prompt the Kremlin to overhaul the Russian military command. Ground attacks by Russian troops were limited to the Svatovo-Kremennaya line and showed little success. Meanwhile, Russian offensive operations along the Avdiivka-Donetsk front line continued without significant gains, while Russian troops strengthened their defense in southern Ukraine. On April 1, Russia launched its largest military conscription since 2016, possibly indicating preparations for further military action in Ukraine. Additionally, there are concerning reports that Russian occupation authorities are deporting Ukrainian children to Russia under the pretext of rest and rehabilitation. In another development, Russian nationalists criticized Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for not contributing to the creation of a union state between Russia and Belarus, signaling a growing divide between the two countries. On the diplomatic front, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken recently held a telephone conversation focused on the arrest of Wall Street Journal journalist Evan Gershkovich in Russia on suspicion of espionage. The call was initiated by the US, and Lavrov emphasized that officials in Washington and the Western media were exacerbating the situation, urging against politicizing the case. Blinken called for the immediate release of Gershkovich and another American, Paul Whelan, who is currently serving a 16-year sentence in Russia on espionage charges. The US State Department expressed its concern over Gershkovich’s detention and urged all Americans in Russia to leave the country immediately. The Wall Street Journal has denied the allegations against Gershkovich and demanded his release, while the Russian Foreign Ministry maintained that the arrest was made in accordance with Russian law and international obligations. The Federal Security Service arrested Gershkovich on March 30 in Yekaterinburg and transferred him to Moscow, where he remains in custody. We are deeply concerned for Evan Gershkovich’s safety, and unless a miracle occurs in the next few days, we fear that he may not survive his captivity. Given our knowledge of how certain parties in Russia operate, the timing of this situation is particularly concerning as it presents a perfect opportunity for the conflict to escalate to new levels.
