Ivan Valentinovich Golunov (Russian: Иван Валентинович Голунов; born 19 January 1983, Moscow) is a Russian investigative journalist and anti-corruption reporter currently working for independent outlet Meduza. He came to public attention in June 2019 when he was arrested and charged with drug-related crime by the Moscow police; he was later released after widespread public outcry, which alleged that the case was fabricated to silence Golunov's investigations into corruption.[note 1] Golunov's arrest has attracted much attention from the Russian internet and social media community and has spurred criticism of abuse of power by the police.
