OREANDA-NEWS. Russian entrepreneur Yevgeny Prigozhin, owner of the company Concord Catering, demanded that the US Attorney General William Barr initiate criminal proceedings against former President Barack Obama, heads of the US Department of Justice, American parliamentarians and diplomats for unlawful prosecution of his company. In his opinion, they entered into collusion and by unlawful actions, falsification of documents and evidence achieved the unlawful initiation of a criminal case against Concord in order to discredit the company, Prigozhin personally and the Russian Federation.

In February 2018, the US Department of Justice accused three companies, including Concord Catering and Concord Management and Consulting, as well as 13 Russian citizens, of interfering in the 2016 presidential election in the USA.
