Putin's Chef Launches Attack Against Search Engines

Yevgeny Prigozhin has filed lawsuits against Google, Yandex and Mail.ru

Vladimir Putin's personal chef, Yevgeny Prigozhin, has filed lawsuits against the internet companies Google, Yandex and Mail.ru. He alleges that the companies have refused to remove links from their search engine results pages that appear when you type in his name. Although he has not revealed which links he wants removing, a quick search brings up several results to do with an investigation into one of his businesses, as well as references to him being an ex-convict. Russia introduced a “right to be forgotten” law at the beginning of the year, which states that search engines must remove links that are illegal, irrelevant or incorrect or face being hit with a 1 million ruble fine.
