  1. DERIPASKA ENTERTAINS PRIKHODKO ON THE YACHT

Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch, takes an influential, high-rank Kremlin official Segey Prikhodko for a ride on his yacht and pays for the trip and escort services. One of the sex workers shares photos and videos on the social media.

“ALL THAT IS SECRET IS NOW OBVIOUS…”

Deripaska talks about Prikhodko’s “friend” Victoria Nuland and relationship between the US and Russia (read the subtitles.)

2. WHO IS PRIKHODKO?

Sergey Prikhodko is the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, the Head of the Executive Office of the Government. In the late 90s, he worked as a Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration; the first Deputy Head at the time was Putin. He was an advisor to Yeltsin, Putin and Medvedev. Prikhodko is considered an expert on international relations. He is very close to Putin.

3. DERIPASKA AND MANAFORT

As I reported in 2016, Manafort and Deripaska started an investment fund in Cayman Islands in 2007. The deal failed and Deripaska who committed to invest $100 million filed a legal action in 2014.

Manafort officially worked as a political consultant for Ukraine’s ruling party and personally advised the now-toppled Russian puppet Victor Yanukovichfrom 2006–07 to 2012. He was introduced to Yanukovich by Rinat Akhmetov, a Ukrainian oligarch. An official Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs report titled the “Overview of the Most Dangerous Organized Crime Structures in Ukraine” identified Akhmetov as a leader of an organized crime syndicate. He has allegedly financed the Russian separatists in South-Eastern Ukraine.

Manafort stepped down from his post in the Trump campaign in August 2016 after questions were raised about large payments he allegedly received from pro-Russian entities.

Manafort also has allegedly offered Deripaska private briefings about the progress of Trump’s campaign.

4. DERIPASKA, ORGANIZED CRIME AND FBI

As I also reported in 2016, in 2008, Boris Birshtein, a founder of Seabeco Group, a company known for theft and money laundering in Russia, Kirghistan, Moldova and Ukraine, its close connections with organized crime, assassinations, and political manipulations and an individual accused of fraud and money-laundering in Russia, Canada, Belgium and Switzerland, linked to organized crime by FBI and allegedly a (double) agent of the KGB and Mossad, collaborated with the FBI on Robert Levinson’s case, negotiated the conditions of Oleg Deripaska’s entry into the US despite of the organized crime status.

Birshtein is a father-in-law and a life-long partner of Alex Shnaider, Trump’s Tower Toronto business partner.

Levinson, a CIA spy who disappeared in Iran in 2007, was an expert on the Russian organized crime and had previous contacts with Birshtein.

5. DERIPASKA AND THE NIXON CENTER

As previously reported, in 2005, two English-language Russian sources, a Russian-American newspaper Kommersant and Moscow Times reported (NOTE: THE LINK DISAPPEARED AFTER THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED) that the Kremlin adviser Gleb Pavlovsky and Oleg Deripaska met Russian-born and raised Dimitri Simes, the president of The Center for the National Interest (formerly, The Nixon Center) and publisher of the foreign policy journal The National Interest, to discuss forming a Russian-funded think tank. The Nixon Center denied the story.

Left: In 2013, Simes attended Valdai International Discussion Club alongside Putin, where both took part in a two-hour panel discussion. Other participants were Germany’s former defense minister and prime ministers of France and Italy — so Simes’s presence raised some eyebrows. Right: A lecture at The National Interest.

The Center for the National Interest was a hosting institution for Trump’s first foreign policy speech.

6. DERIPASKA AND DILIGENCE LLC

As previously reported, according to the New York Times, Deripaska’s business partner, Nathaniel Rothschild, owns a stake in Diligence LLC, a Washington-based, private global intelligence firm.

An Executive Chairman of Diligence LLC from 2002 to 2007 and a member of Advisory Board is Richard Burt, who helped to draft Trump’s first policy speech at The National Interest in April 2016.

A former German ambassador and a member of the Center’s board of directors and the chairman of the advisory council for The National Interest, Burt is also a former member of the senior advisory board of Alfa Bank and currently a Board member of Letter One. Alfa Bank is a part of Alfa Group, financial and industrial consortium created and owned by the Russian oligarchs Mikhail Fridman and Petr Aven. In 2007, Diligence LLC was charged over allegations of corporate espionage in a case that involved Alfa Group Consortium.

Petr Aven and Mikhail Fridman of Alfa Group and Letter One are close and long-term allies of Putin. The 2007 report of the global intelligence company Stratfor which has a reputation of being a “shadow CIA” and is trusted by many national governments, connects Fridman and Aven to Solntsevo mafia.

In 2016, Alfa Bank was involved in the scandal with Trump’s server. An article in Slate revealed allegations of the sustained relationship between a server registered to the Trump Organization and two servers registered to an entity called Alfa Bank.

7. DERIPASKA AND ROSNEFT PRIVATIZATION CONNECTION

Deripaska is a personal friend of Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg. Deripaska is the chief executive of Rusal, the biggest aluminum company in Russia. Glasenberg, a nominal control shareholder, sits on the Rusal board. Glencore owns 8.75% stake in Rusal. Glencore participated in Rosneft privatization in December 2016 (see below.)

Deripaska to CNN correspondent: “Get lost, please. Thank you.”
