Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian entrepreneur with business ties to the Kremlin, claimed on social media that he and others have interfered in U.S. elections.  “We have interfered, are interfering and will continue to interfere. Carefully, precisely, surgically and in our own way” he posted through a spokesperson on social media. Prigozhin has previously denied involvement in election interference until now. Prigozhin and other Russian nationals along with three Russian companies were investigated for interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
