We think these flashy allegations are completely unfounded. Following our colleague’s death, the press used words like “pedophilia” and “child porn.” This is complete garbage. We all knew Grigory as a super-correct, super-exemplary person. In the 15 years of working with him, I got to know him as a workaholic who could work for days on end. He was very well-known on the digital market and among designers. What he’s accused of simply can’t be true.
