‘The Russian govt coordinates with & directs Deripaska on many of his influence ops’

Zero coverage on this though he employs Lord @GregBarkerUK & tried to funnel £ to Tories via @George_Osborne

Meanwhile man who exposed Deripaska’s links to Kremlin is fighting for his life

Navalny’s bank accounts & those of his family were frozen in March without explanation.

‘At same time, Navalny said he obtained information that billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who has strong links to Russia's leadership, was suing him for unknown reasons’

Britain is absolutely central to the story of Russian corruption. The story that @navalny has been fighting to expose. After the US sanctioned Deripaska, he came to London & did £1bn flotation on our stock exchange

The financial aspects of this flagged in 2 v good reports by Foreign Affairs Committee. So why this total refusal to investigate Russian influence on our politics?? Why did Johnson block #RussiaReport? Why did MI5 & 6 do nothing?
