On 7 June 2019 Golunov was arrested by Moscow City Police on drug-related crime charges. Colleagues and friends of Golunov expressed their belief that the case was fabricated and charges were primarily motivated by Golunov's investigations into corruption. Those publicly speaking in defense of Golunov included Alexey Navalny, Vladimir Posner, Yuri Shevchuk, Zemfira, Alexey Venediktov, Victor Matizen, Victor Shenderovich, Anna Narinskaya, Ksenia Sobchak, Boris Grebenshchikov, Dmitry Muratov, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Leonid Parfyonov, Grigory Yavlinsky, Oxxxymiron, and a number of other journalists, artists, and public figures. Three major Russian newspapers, Kommersant, Vedomosti and RBK, published a joint editorial under the headline "I am / We are Ivan Golunov".

On 11 June 2019, the non-profit Anti-Corruption Foundation published an investigation that linked alleged masterminds behind Golunov's persecution to officials in the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), including its Moscow office chief. On the same day, Golunov was released and cleared of all charges. Almost simultaneously, Oyub Titiev, a Russian human-rights activist arrested in 2018, was released by another Russian court.


While working with Meduza, Golunov wrote a number of articles concerning corruption in Russian society. Among them were "The evictors", looking at loan sharks in Moscow, and "The penthouse family", an exposé of corruption in the Moscow mayoral office and the acquisition of a fortune in real estate. Other investigations included 'A roughly painted, cheap fake', about a controversial multi-billion rouble restoration of the Stone Flower Fountain, and 'Musicians remain silent and afraid', concerning the exchange of state assets and links to presidential agencies. His article "A coffin, a cemetery and hundreds of billions of rubles", published in 2017, investigated crime and corruption in the Russian funeral industry. He has twice received the Redkollegia Award [ru] for his work, firstly in October 2017, alongside fellow journalists Aleksandr Borzenko, Aleksandr Gorbachyov [ru] , and Daniil Turovsky [ru] for their article "The 'Christian state' does not exist. But behind it, perhaps, is the FSB"; and in August 2018 for his "A coffin, a cemetery and hundreds of billions of rubles". He was researching a followup to this latter study at the time of his arrest in 2019, looking at connections between funeral businesses in Moscow and the city's Federal Security Service (FSB) department, and had just submitted a draft of the article on the day of his arrest.
