James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said on Thursday that US sanctions imposed by the Biden administration on several Russian oligarchs do not apply to two Russian oligarchs who propelled the Biden family’s business.
Yelena Baturina and Vladimir Yevtushenkov, two powerful members of the Russian oligarch, escape crushing sanctions imposed on Russian elites by the Biden administration as a result of the Ukraine war.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has restricted Visas 893 Member of the Russian Federation. According to the US Atlantic Council he have More than 2,700 oaths against Russia. Since the outbreak of the Ukraine War last year, the Biden administration has done just that imposed Nearly 1,500 new and 750 amended sanctions and export controls against Russia.
But Russian oligarchs Yelena Baturina and Vladimir Yevtushenkov are somehow immune to President Joe Biden’s control.
“Mysteriously, these two were the few who were not included in the sanctions,” Kummer said Tell Fox News on Thursday. “Joe Biden sanctioned nearly every referee in Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine except for the two who paid Biden.”
In 2014, Baturina, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, transferred $3.5 million into a bank account owned by Rosemont Seneca Thornton — an entity formed between Hunter’s investment firm, Rosemont Seneca, and the Thornton Group. The consortium was controlled by Rosemont Capital Partners, a private equity firm co-founded by Hunter Biden and Chris Hines.
Baturina launched a company in 1991 that focused on construction even though it started as a plastics company. In 2012, Hunter reached a $40 million real estate deal with Baturina, while President Joe Biden was vice president. The mega deal was tied to a previously reported $3.5 million fee Baturina paid to the Hunter real estate entity for access to the US business market, according to documents. acquired By the anti-corruption group, the Kazakh initiative on asset recovery.
Yevtushenkov, the second few exempted from the sanctions of the Biden administration, partners With Baturina while searching for real estate investments in the United States. Yevtushenkov’s business is valued at an estimated $1.7 billion, and was in the information technology and cellular phone business sectors.
Yevtushenkov admitted he met Hunter at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton near Central Park from 9 to 10 a.m. on March 14, 2012, according to investigative journalist Vicky Ward, previously reported by The Guardian. New York Post.
According to the supports A source with direct knowledge of the relationship between Hunter and Yevtushenkov, the Russian oligarch wanted to invest with Hunter to be in good graces with the Biden family:
“I asked [Yevtushenkov], ‘Why are you doing this?’ On the front end—before I knew they were going to buy some real estate,” a source told the newspaper. “Why are you even doing this? Why would you pay the vice president’s son to meet at a public restaurant in New York City?”
“He made it very clear to me that, you know… ‘I think it would be nice to have a good relationship with this guy… maybe he can do us a favor and we can do him a favor,’” the source continued. “It was a total quid pro quo he was seeking out.” yeah.”
“I told him that’s not the way it works in America, [but] He basically made fun of me and told me I was too naive,” the source recalls of Yevtushenkov, whose holdings also include Russia’s largest mobile phone provider, MTS, and who has faced a long-running US investigation into nearly $1 billion in bribes paid to officials in Uzbekistan. Between 2004 and 2012.
In March, White House press secretary Karen Jean-Pierre refused to answer why the Biden administration refused to sanction the Russian oligarch.
“I’m not talking about anything to do with his son from here,” said Jean-Pierre. “If you want to ask a question about Hunter Biden specifically, I will refer you to his family. As for any sanctions, I am not talking to individuals from Russia.”
