An unknown Russian state body has been blocking websites that are promoting “the new leader of the new Russia” Yevgeny Prigozhin, as per Roskomsoboda.
The project reports a total of 7 websites of the p2024 domain were blocked since 28 June. It is unknown what decision is used to block the sites. However, the orders to block those were issued on 27 June. All the blocked websites are identical and promote Prigozhin as a candidate for the 2024 presidential election in Russia.
“Be ready to support Prigozhin in order to save Russia. He is the new leader of the new Russia,” the websites read.
There is also an option to contact a “curator” via a Telegram bot in order to offer help.
“What price do we pay for the special operation? The price is the total destruction of our military. Just in order for some douchebag to receive another marshall star, so that the members of his family would be untouchable, for the paintings and crooks in the Defence Ministry temple. A sickness has infected our military agencies. They’re going to sleep Russia away if we don’t wake them up!” the Telegram bot says.
The US Institute for the Study of War suggested in late March 2023 that Prigozhin might use his media profile to run for president in 2024.
