RUSSIAN BILLIONAIRE OLEG DERIPASKA LOSES COURT CASE AGAINST US TREASURY TO LIFT SANCTIONS

On 14 June, UA Wire in Ukraine reported that a US court has decided to reject billionaire Oleg Deripaska’s lawsuit against the US Treasury to lift personal sanctions imposed in 2018.  Deripaska, formerly Russia’s richest person, will remain on the OFAC blacklist.  The businessman had claimed that his rights guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution, which prohibits being tried twice for the same crime and seizing property without fair reparation, were violated.  The US Treasury cited examples showing his apparent connection to the Russian regime.
