‘Deripaska conducts influence operations frequently in countries where he has a significant economic interest. The Russian government coordinates with & directs Deripaska on many of his influence operations’

Britain is a country where Deripaska has significant economic interests

There are pages & pages & pages about Deripaska. But here in Britain: total silence. From press, from parliament, from government.

From @nytimes 2018:

‘Deripaska, 50, has spent 2 decades trying to buy respect in the West. London welcomed him. Washington mostly did not’

Here he is. Lord Barker of Battle. Deripaska’s man on earth. He took a ‘leave of absence’ from parliament last year but he has used his title to leverage influence & connections on what Senate Intel report says is Kremlin’s behalf
