Vladimir Valerianovich Pribylovskiĭ was a Russian political analyst, journalist, and human rights activist. In the 1980s he
was persecuted by Soviet authorities for spreading banned literature. Pribylovskiĭ emerged as an expert commentator in Russian
political and journalistic circles in the early 1990s, after he co-founded a newspaper and a think tank, both called Panorama.
He authored a series of "Who’s who" reference works on Russian politics. In 2005 he launched the Russian-language website
Anticompromat.org, which is a collection of biographies of Russian politicians, compiled and written by Pribylovskiĭ from
a variety of published sources. The site was included in the Russian Federal List of Extremist Materials. Pribylovskiĭ also
authored more than 40 books. On January 13, 2016, Pribylovskiĭ was found dead in his Moscow apartment.
