Vladimir Valerianovich Pribylovsky (Russian: Влади́мир Валериа́нович Прибыло́вский, b. 6 March 1956, Moscow, Soviet Union) is a Russian politologist and journalist.


Pribylovsky graduated from the Department of Medieval History of Moscow State University in 1981 specializing in Byzantine studies. In 1980s he was persecuted by Soviet authorities for spreading banned literature.

Since 1993 he is the president of the Panorama Information and Research Center think tank. Since November 2005 he has also operated the Russian-language opposition political website Anticompromat.ru,[1] which is essentially a collection of biographies of Russian politicians written mostly by him.[2] According to Pribylovsky, the site belongs to "opposition politics".[3] On 31 March, after being shortly closed, the website moved to a Californian hosting and became available at Anticompromat.org. On 1 April its mirror was reopened at the original URL.

Together with Yury Felshtinsky, Pribylovsky has co-authored The Operation Successor, a book about Vladimir Putin's coming to power. Its newer versions were published as The Age of Assassins and Corporation.[4][5][6]
