Mikhail Prokhorov Rumors

Businesses owned by Prokhorov, owner of U.S. basketball team the Brooklyn Nets, have come under intense official scrutiny in the past few weeks, with officials in ski masks searching some of their offices in Moscow in April as part of a tax fraud investigation. Another of Prokhorov’s assets, the RBC media holding, has reported on the inner circle of Russian President Vladimir Putin and their financial interests – a taboo subject for much of Russia’s media. The Kremlin denies that the investigation is politically-motivated.
