The circumstances of the appearance of an intimate video with the participation of Russian forward Artem Dziuba have become known . Shortly before the scandal, he was faced with a choice – the incriminating evidence was estimated at $ 5 million (more than UAH 140 million).
Fontanka informs about it
The identity of the blackmailer is known both to Artem himself and to law enforcement agencies, but they did not disclose it in the media. The footballer met with this person and recorded a conversation demanding money, but does not tell reporters about the incident.
According to the newspaper, Dziuba refused the extortionist. Firstly, the amount is too large even for the Zenit striker, and secondly, there were no guarantees that the video would not be publicly available anyway. After the refusal, the video was published.

Now all the information about Dziuba's interlocutor is being studied at the central office of the FSB. The available records and information are sufficient to initiate a criminal case under the article on extortion on an especially large scale. But it is not yet known whether such a decision will be made – in connection with the potential scandalousness of a possible trial. Dziuba applied to the authorities unofficially, through the governor of the Tula region, Alexei Dyumin.
Recall that an intimate video surfaced on the network in which, presumably, the forward of Zenit and the Russian national team Artem Dzyuba is self-satisfied. As a result, it was decided not to take the player to the team for the next matches.
