Facebook and Twitter Blocked Accounts of Russian Businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin
OREANDA-NEWS. The personal accounts of businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin on Facebook and Twitter have been blocked without explanation, the press service of his company "Concord" reported on the social network "VKontakte".
As noted by Prigozhin's representatives, "As stated in the social media help center, the decision to block accounts is final, reasons are not disclosed for security purposes."
The press service clarified that they consider the blocking as a reaction to Prigozhin's comment that "US President Joe Biden has lifted the ban on service in the army of transgender people introduced by Donald Trump."
"This is a clear example of how the US State Department blocks any objectionable comments. The dispersal of shares with Navalny is not suitable for him. If one person goes out on the street in America and quietly says: " I do not agree with Biden, he can be punished by an electric chair ", - the press service quotes the words of the entrepreneur.
Since 2016, Prigozhin himself has been on the US sanctions lists as a suspected participant in "Russian interference" in the presidential elections, and also appears in the sanctions of the European Union, which considers him involved in violating the arms embargo on Libya.
