MOSCOW, Jun 5. /ITAR-TASS/. Ilya Perekopsky, former vice president of Russia’s answer to Facebook, social network VKontakte, has filed a lawsuit against the company requesting the payment of a 20 million ruble golden parachute, according to documents of a St. Petersburg court, released late Wednesday.
