Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian businessman from St.Petersburg, commented on the approval procedure of the U.S. presidential election results. It took place against the backdrop of protest actions near the Capitol Building. According to him, these events showed that the U.S. political elite had turned the country into a laughingstock and, therefore, the U.S. had lost the right to dole out advice on how other countries should live.
The press service of the Concord group of companies, which is half owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, recalled that on January 7, the U.S. Congress approved the results of the presidential election. The procedure was to be completed on January 6 but was postponed due to public protests in Washington. The rallies began after the supporters of Donald Trump violently stormed the Capitol. As a result, four people died, and more than ten law enforcement officers were injured.
In Prigozhin’s opinion, today, the U.S. political elite have lost the right to dole out advice on how to arrange matters in other countries. He also mentioned the contradictions in the U.S. establishment that was interested in embezzlement and “printing trillions of dollars in order to fool the whole world.”
According to Prigozhin, in order to restore democracy, the Americans should hold fair elections and invite international observers to make the process as transparent as possible.
Yevgeny Prigozhin wished every success to the people of the United States and expressed contempt for the “insatiable American elite.”
