The recording of a leaked telephone conversation between Russian producer Iosif Prigozhin and former senator Farkhad Akhmedov is authentic. This is written by "Important stories" with reference to a source in the special services.
According to these data, "the leadership of the FSB recently held a meeting and ordered subordinates to take action." It is not reported what measures are in question.
Earlier on March 26, Prigozhin recorded a video message in which he stated that the leaked recording was a fake. According to him, ill-wishers forged his voice using neural networks. In a conversation with Podyom, Prigozhin stressed that he supports the Russian authorities, and the authors of the fake want to discredit supporters of Vladimir Putin.
The record in question was published by Ukrainian media on March 25. On it, the alleged Akhmedov and Prigozhin criticize the Russian authorities for half an hour. In particular, Prigogine says the following:
“To be honest, of course they are criminals, damn, what other criminals. They lost to Kvartal-95, damn it. And the fact that they say that those are fighting against them, behold - they themselves gave a reason. He was driven into this x * ynyu ... He drove himself into this! To be honest, I would fucking stop, get a Nobel Prize and go to hell."
Also on the recording, Prigogine says:
“They teamed up, Igor Ivanovich (Sechin - Ed.), Sergey Viktorovich (Chemezov - Ed.) and Viktor Zolotov. They blame Shoigu for everything. They call him a dork, behind his back, of course. And they have the task of demolishing it, damn it. Yes, but because someone needs to be blamed (military defeats - Approx. ed.), Listen. They are the most fucked up people. My opinion is simple: they act like kings, like gods, damn it. They are finished creatures."
According to the source of Important Stories, Prigozhin's statement about the forgery is an attempt to absolve himself of responsibility.
