From The Daily Dot:

A man known as Russian president Vladimir Putin’s “chef” was reportedly behind the financing of the Russia-based “troll factory” that used social media to spread fake news and disinformation ahead of the 2016 election, according to reports.

CNN reports that a company owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, who has been dubbed Putin’s “chef,” was a “main backer” of the Internet Research Agency, which was allegedly responsible for buying at least more than $100,000 worth of ads meant to stir division about divisive issues on Facebook ahead of the election.
