Silver linings playbook, #TrumpRussia continues and no one had to leap out of the octagon. Sanctions continue, despite the prospect of the fix being in on SCOTUS.
Washington has frozen Deripaska’s US-based assets, including massive mansions in Manhattan and Washington, DC. But the feds are also negotiating with him to give up some of his European-based operations to keep them running free of sanctions, Treasury officials say.
Deripaska’s US assets include a mansion at 11 E. 64th St. The uber-posh residence is just down the street from fellow Ukrainian-born oligarch Len Blavatnik’s mansion, which he bought for a record $90 million earlier this year.
But although the US government has frozen Deripaska’s US assets, including his property, Deripaska has arranged to have the children and ex-wife of his business partner, the oligarch Roman Abramovich, live within its secure walls, The Post has learned.
🔥Wilbur Ross failed to disclose he was in business w the son in law of PUTIN‼️Don’t forget his ties to Deutsche Bank AND Deripaska & Vekselberg & money laundering at Trump’s loans etc etc etc… 🔥 pic.twitter.com/XkAzKNZPBM

^ In 2014 court docs, Russian oligarch Deripaska named LINDSEY GRAHAM's 2016 campaign manager, Christian Ferry, as a key associate of Paul Manafort, along w/ RU intelligence-trained Konstantin Kilimnik & Rick Gates. #Compromised

Abramovich created Rusal which Deripaska later took over, they are co-owners of Norilsk Nickel and have been battling in court w/each other – sometimes these legal battles seem odd when news like in the NY Post story 👆🏼 shows they are cooperating elsewherehttps://t.co/wTGG4Cio5Q

This seems like a huge power shift and bad news for Oleg Deripaska, whose entree into 'the Family' [small group of Yeltsin oligarchs who put Putin in power in return for safety & prosperity] was Polina, Yeltsin's step-granddaughter.@Kris_Sacrebleu #Maddow https://t.co/pRleMSrhSK

Deripaska also owns a mansion on Gay Street. @Credico2016 used to be his next door neighbor until 2010. Credico once told me that the rumor was that Putin's daughter stayed in Deripaska's place. https://t.co/txW6umrQiX

So… you know how I keep asking about the lion pictures that appear on so many Russian-linked accounts?

Bonus fact: the feds found Abramovich’s ex-wife and children living in the seized mansion and that Abramovich is dating Deripaska’s ex-wife. …The ex-wife (Dasha Zhukova) is good friends w/Ivanka Trump. Zhukova & Abramovich often traveled & socialized w/KremlinBarbie & Kushner.
