Во вторник, 19 января, Евгений Пригожин прокомментировал задержание и арест Алексея Навального, который недавно вернулся из Германии в Россию. Развернутый комментарий был опубликован в официальной группе пресс-службы компании "Конкорд".
По словам бизнесмена, Навальный пытался стать политиком из желания заработать "легкие" деньги. "Навальный изначально пытался стать политиком, чтобы срубить бабла по-легкому. И для этого надо вспомнить его первые дела с расхищением государственного и частного имущества, а затем с банальным мошенничеством", – напомнил Пригожин.
Также бизнесмен уточнил, что, по его мнению, глава ФБК получает финансирование от западных спецслужб. Они же взамен контролируют деятельность Навального. "Так вот, такого обычного мошенника-негодяя враги нашей страны, западные спецслужбы "прокачали", ввалили в него кучу денег и попытались сделать из него политическую фигуру", – отметил Пригожин.
Евгений Пригожин подчеркнул, что расследования Алексея Навального строятся по определённой схеме и нацелены на дискредитацию российской власти, где "факты" откровенно "притянуты за уши". "Посмотрите на его псевдорасследования, большая часть из них об обычных коммерсантах, которые заработали свои деньги, как я, например, а заодно в ходе развития бизнеса давали работу десяткам тысяч человек. Затем подмешайте туда малую толику чиновников. И всё это за уши притянуто к руководству страны", – обратил внимание бизнесмен.
Пригожин также отметил, что Навальный вернулся в Россию, потому что западные страны не слишком в нём заинтересованы: "В Америке на содержании Леша не нужен, да и денег он хочет много, а из-за всяких Ющенко и Саакашвили и так уже 51 штат переполнен".
Кроме того, предприниматель напомнил о своих судебных разбирательствах с блогером: "Я подал на Навального в суд. И выигрываю все процессы, заставляя этого негодяя отвечать за свои слова. Их я бы выиграл и в Америке, и в Европе, и в любом другом суде, потому что я прав".
Что касается ареста Навального, Евгений Пригожин пришел к выводу, что глава ФБК должен ответить за свои преступления согласно Уголовному кодексу. По мнению бизнесмена, главной ошибкой Навального стало его обращение к Евросоюзу с просьбой ввести санкции против экономики РФ.

Frustrated by the flow of coronavirus vaccine from the federal government, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday floated the idea of buying shots for New Yorkers directly from one of the vaccine makers, Pfizer.
The idea seemed far from a sure bet, with the pharmaceutical giant saying it would need federal approval to sell to state governments. If that were to happen, the cost and amount have yet to be be discussed.
Regardless, Cuomo said he felt compelled to broach the idea as his state, like many others, faces tough vaccine math. At the current pace of federal vaccine shipments to New York, it could take six months or more to get shots to the 7 million residents already eligible under federal guidelines, let alone the roughly 12 million other New Yorkers. Residents have been scrambling to try to get the shots, with many getting shut out and upset.
“My job as governor of New York is to pursue every avenue, and that’s what I’m doing,” the Democratic governor said at a virtual news conference as he released a letter he’d written to New York-based Pfizer about his idea. He told the company it “could help us save lives right here in New York.”
Pfizer Inc., which developed one of the current vaccines with German partner BioNTech, said in a statement that it appreciated Cuomo’s praise and was open to working with the federal Health and Human Services Department on getting the shots as quickly as possible to as many Americans as it could.
“However, before we can sell directly to state governments, HHS would need to approve that proposal,” the company said.
An HHS spokesperson said via email that Cuomo is “trying to circumvent a long-planned federal allocation system by attempting to cut to the front of the line at the expense of fellow jurisdictions.”
The spokesperson said the top priority for HHS is “maximizing the availability of safe and effective vaccines in a manner which is responsible, fair and equitable for all Americans, not just to those in New York State.”
Under the current system, HHS allocates vaccine doses to states and ships them. The federal Food and Drug Administration’s emergency-based authorization for the Pfizer vaccine specifies that it will be supplied “as directed by the U.S. government.”
The federal government has been paying $19.50 per dose for the Pfizer vaccine and has ordered 200 million doses so far, enough to give the two-shot regimen to 100 million people. Other nations around the world have also placed orders.

Recently, an NYPD officer reportedly drew his weapon after being confronted by the demonstrators for not wearing a mask during the pandemic, and this has spurred a new wave of BLM anti- police protests.
BLM have taken to the street once more in NYC and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea slammed the mostly young and white social justice radicals as the “antithesis” of Martin Luther King Jr as they once more caused mayhem in Brooklyn on MLK day.
“On such a day that we’re honoring Martin Luther King, [we have] demonstrations that consist of violence, throwing bottles, breaking property, calling for the death of officers [and] to burn the city down,” Shea said.
“I really can’t think of anything that is more [the] antithesis of what Martin Luther King stood for. I think it’s a disgrace. And it’s time that everyone calls this out.”
The NY post reported Twenty-nine people were arrested at the Monday night demonstration — all of whom were released with summonses or desk appearance tickets, according to cops.
The Barclay’s Center, in the Atlantic Ave area of Brooklyn, has become a popular spot for the predominantly white, college age BLM brigade to gather and abuse the NYPD.
NYPD previously arrested nine Black Lives Matter protesters in Brooklyn Saturday night. The protesters came to call for the firing of an NYPD officer who pulled a handgun on BLM protesters earlier in the week.
A large group of BLM protesters gathered on Saturday night near the Barclays Center to call for the firing of an officer who drew his service weapon during another protest earlier in the week, the New York Post reported. The officer reportedly drew his weapon after being confronted by the demonstrators for not wearing a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The video shows the officer appearing to hold his pistol close to his body and pointed safely to the ground. He reholsters after assessing the situation and draws what appears to be pepper spray from his duty belt. He later deploys an ASP (expandable baton) as the crowd becomes more aggressive.
Virtue signaling over masks is one of the most popular trends of the embolden and radicalized young urban leftist. Leftists love to approach cops and citizens who may have their mask off for even a second and begin to verbally assault, harass and sometimes film the alleged “super spreader”. Mental illness has begun to manifest itself especially among political extremists as a result of the pandemic.

Satanists warned that whoever was responsible for burning down the historic “Halloween House” has “Hell to pay”.
As reported by the NY Post, on January 14, the Church of Satan, also known locally as the Halloween House was burned down. Located in Poughkeepsie in upstate New York, the house which was built in 1900, served as an Addams Family-style hub for local adherents of the Satan religion.
Authorities say the house was set ablaze by an unidentified arsonist, as per the Poughkeepsie Journal. “Now there’s going to be hell to pay,” said a member of the Church, who identified himself as Isis Vermouth. “Whoever did this is going to be hexed by all of us.” The Satanist said other local members of their religion were jolted over the atrocity and that “everyone in the neighborhood is worried.”
Police say they have surveillance footage of a person walking up to the house at 27 South Clinton St. with two gas cans, pouring liquid on the front porch and setting it on fire, at about 5 a.m. on Thursday. Two people were inside the home at the time, but they were able to escape uninjured. The religious site, also known as the House of Netherworld, had been decorated with devil sculptures and other paraphernalia, which exemplified the beliefs of its longtime former owner, Joe “Netherworld” Mendillo, a Church of Satan devotee, who died last year. Located in what is known as the ‘Witch District’ of the city, the house burned for more than 90-minutes, despite the Poughkeepsie Fire Department’s efforts to battle the blaze.
Peter H. Gilmore, high priest of the Church of Satan, said the house would probably not be restored, due to the extent of damage it endured. “Sadly there are some ‘people of faith’ who are intolerant, and typically ignorant, of other belief systems,” said Gilmore. “I am convinced that Joe’s legacy will live on,” Gilmore added, “even though the home he so carefully cultivated has been destroyed through the hateful act of some deeply disturbed individual, regardless of motivation.”
The religion of the House of Satan was founded in 1966 as an atheist philosophy, which does not actually worship the devil. The House’s nickname pays tribute to the fact that it bore Halloween-style decorations all year round. “It was extraordinarily different,” said City Councilman Chris Petsas, describing the house as “It wasn’t your normal home.”

Over a year after the first coronavirus cases, some early patients are still suffering. “Long Covid" refers to symptoms that can last for months or that return after recovery. A new study from Wuhan China has found three quarters of hospitalised patients still experience at least one symptom half a year later. What we're yet to discover is just how long "long Covid" can last. Survivors know all-too well how damaging the sickness can be - even after they get better. The road to recovery can be long and difficult.

Can you call the events of Jan. 6 an insurgency? NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro asks retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling what he thinks based on his experiences in Iraq.
LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:
So what exactly are we seeing in America at this moment as Washington is locked down and state capitols on alert? We’re joined now by Mark Hertling. He’s a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general. He served for more than 37 years and commanded combat divisions during the Iraq war.
MARK HERTLING: Good morning, Lulu. How are you?
GARCIA-NAVARRO: I am very well. There were a couple of cases of IEDs, improvised explosive devices, planted around D.C. on January 6. You’re familiar with them, of course, from Iraq. Does the similarity end there? What are you seeing when you look at what’s happening?
HERTLING: There’s much more to it than that, Lulu. I had a conversation with a friend who’s a reporter for Politico. She was asking me about the use of IEDs. And it got me thinking about the similarities between what we experienced in Iraq, especially during the surge of 2007 and ’08, and what we’re seeing now in our nation’s Capitol. This is more than just random laying of devices like IEDs. This is something bigger, as your reporter just said. And I believe that there’s elements of an insurgency to all of this, and others have said the same.
