The Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Department of justice planned to recruit Russian oligarchs as informants. This writes The New York Times.
According to the publication, the choice of the American authorities has fallen, in particular, Oleg Deripaska. Intelligence agencies strongly hinted Deripaska on a possible assistance in obtaining visas and offered to solve his problems with the laws of the United States. Instead they wanted information about Russian organized crime and possible assistance of the Kremlin’s Trump from his campaign.
Systematic attempts to achieve cooperation, it seems, has not succeeded. Deripaska told the investigators that disagree with their suspicions, and later even informed the Kremlin about the recruitment attempt.
The newspaper says that the case of Deripaska is not the only one. Just in sight of the agents came about six oligarchs and intelligence agencies also failed.
6 APR, Oleg Deripaska, together with other Russian enterprises and private individuals came under another wave of us sanctions. Restrictions are imposed in the framework of the Law on counteraction to opponents of the United States (CAATSA), which means that under them are not the only players in the list, but all of their partners, counterparties and other persons acting on their behalf.
