The FBI came with searches to the home of Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska in Washington. This was announced on Tuesday, October 19, by an NBC correspondent with reference to a representative of the American intelligence service in his Twitter-account.
It is noted that FBI officers are also on duty next to the building, which restrict access to the territory. Other details are not provided.
In June, it was reported that a US court dismissed the Russian businessman’s lawsuit demanding the lifting of the sanctions imposed on him by the US authorities.
In 2018, the United States imposed sanctions on Deripaska and eight of his assets. In January 2019, the billionaire agreed with the US Treasury that the pressure on En +, Rusal and Eurosibenergo would end. However, the rest of the assets and the Russian businessman himself remained on the sanctions lists. In March 2019, Deripaska filed a lawsuit against the American department. As the businessman noted then, due to unfair measures, he lost more than $ 7 billion.
