Unknown persons attacked the opposition politician and Anti-Corruption Fund lawyer Lyubov Sobol near her house in Moscow and poured mud on her. The scene was filmed, Sobol tweeted. In her opinion, the attack was organized by Yevgeny Prigozhin, who is dubbed “Putin’s cook” in the media.
“I have just been attacked near the entrance of my house, when I was getting in a taxi, they poured some mud on me, flooded the interior of the car. All this was filmed by a Progozhin’s bastard on video,” she wrote.
In March, the Anti-Corruption Fund Head Alexei Navalny stated that on the orders of Prigozhin, unknown young people followed him daily.
The day before the attack, Sobol announced a forthcoming peaceful rally against political repression to take place in Moscow on August 31. The politician said the mayor’s office has not agreed on a single rally from the opposition on this date.
