... Ionov's use of the APSP to promote Russian propaganda relating to Ukraine allegedly continued after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. On the day Russia invaded Ukraine, Feb. 24, 2022, Ionov allegedly emailed Nevel an "URGENT MESSAGE" which contained pro-Russian talking points in support of the invasion. Thereafter, throughout March 2022, the APSP repeatedly hosted Ionov via video conference to discuss the war, during which Ionov falsely stated that anyone who supported Ukraine also supported Naziism [sic] and white supremacy, and Yeshitela and another APSP member allegedly made statements of solidarity with the Russian government. ...
The FBI signaled its interest in the alleged activities in a series of raids last summer, at which point authorities charged a Moscow man, Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov, with working for years on behalf of Russian government officials to fund and direct fringe political groups in the United States. Among other things, Ionov allegedly advised the political campaigns of two unidentified candidates for public office in Florida.
When the FBI searched the homes and offices of some of the suspects last year, a member of the group said they were being targeted "because of our relationship with forces internationally who support the anti-colonial struggle," adding that the group was being used "in a propaganda war against Russia."
