The police of St. Petersburg evacuated the bookstore "Foliage", where a meeting with the famous Z-figure Igor Strelkov (Girkin) was supposed to take place, under the pretext of reports about the mining of the building. This was reported in the Telegram channel of the store.
Fontanka was told by the police that the message about the mining was received at 16:04. After information about the mining, Liteiny Prospekt was completely blocked for vehicles, the St. Petersburg channel 78 reported .
This is not the first attempt to disrupt the event; on July 8, the security forces came to the store and said that the meeting with Strelkov was not coordinated with the authorities.
The Listva store is part of the Black Hundred publishing house, which supports the war in Ukraine. The announcement of the event said that Igor Strelkov would "honestly and uncompromisingly assess the march on Moscow" of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of Wagner PMC, and also express his opinion about the Ukrainian offensive.
"Well what can I say? I have three options:
1) I really pose a greater threat to the constitutional order of the Russian Federation than the rebel and bandit Prigozhin with a gang of 15 thousand armed scumbags;
2) The management of "Foundry, house 4" is fully maintained by Mr. E. Prigozhin;
3) The head of the UZKS, General Zhalo, finally lost what even he (Aleksey Petrovich) considered "intelligence". Or also on the payroll of Prigozhin (which is also not surprising, given his long-standing sympathy for the money of Jewish businessmen),” Igor Strelkov wrote in his Telegram channel.
