🇷🇺Viktor Vekselberg 🇷🇺
Previously discussed here.
Current chairman of Renova:
- stake United Co. Rusal, Russia's biggest aluminum producer.
- owns stake in Sulzer and Oerlikon.
- owns regional airports in Russia
- 2013 sold 12.5 percent of a Russian oil venture for $7 billion in 2013
- Vekselberg sanctioned by U.S. Treasury in April 2018.
- Board Chairman Jewish Musuem & Tolerance Center, Moscow
About those -sanctions- turns out, all Bull Pucky.— SpicyFiles (@SpicyFiles) April 14, 2018
Guess who which Co was exempt?
Sulzer 👉🏻Russian investor Viktor Vekselberg https://t.co/9FEwpXh9f2
This August 2017 Bloomberg Article painstakingly detailed Russian Oligarchs Vekselberg, Abramovich and numerous intersections with the Trump’s going back to 2008. Bloomberg gives a detailed account of Ivanka, her social circles. Along with the current Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his Cyprus Bank interest involving Vekselberg. Why is it you can’t throw a pebble around the Trump-Family and not hit 6 or 9 Russians?
The 2014 Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center (of which Vekselberg sits on the Board of Trustees, Link here ) is Gala. And it sure seems like Ivanka Trump runs in the Russian Billionaire Oligarch social circles. Because it’s totally normal to have so many filfthy rich Russian Friends, right? I highly recommend you re-read the Bloomberg Article, here
Ivanka Trump’s Instagram confirms she was in Moscow in February 2014, just months after Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant, also in Moscow. Again why are there always a plethora of Russians around the Trump-Family?
December 2015 Russia Today Dinner:
Where Gen Flynn and Jill Stein attended. We know that Flynn was paid to give a speech but what we don’t know is was Stein paid and who paid Stein’s travel & hotel accommodations. NBC News April 2017, Article here.
September 5, 2016 FSB Raids Renova Offices
April [of 2016]..”Russian law enforcement officials searched the offices of oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov, whose interests include the Brooklyn Nets basketball team in the United States.“
”The head of one of Prokhorov’s businesses is in jail, accused of unlawfully paying himself a bonus.“
...investigators detained Nikita Belykh, a regional governor close to Russian business circles, on allegations of accepting a bribe.
“Members of Russia's FSB security service are seen in the offices of Renova during a search of the offices of its subsidiary, T Plus, which also shares the premises of Russian tycoon Viktor Vekselberg's Renova group, in Moscow, Russia, September 5, 2016“
Based on the above quoted Reuters Article, the raid also lead to the FSB “detaining” the following Vekselberg employees on suspicion of “bribery”, full article, here.
“two people detained as suspects were Evgeny Olkhovik, Renova chief managing director, and Boris Vainzikher, chief executive of Renova subsidiary T Plus.“
..investigators also they were seeking to question, Mikhail Slobodin, chief executive of Russia’s third biggest mobile operator Vimpelcom, a unit of New-York listed Vimpelcom Ltd. He is a former boss of KES.
This 2008 Interview during the Swiss Economic Forum is an interesting. Vekselberg disavowed any and all ties to Putin or the Kremlin. Interview found, here.
It is also worth noting that in the past Vekselberg has referred to himself “as half American”. Vekselberg’s rational is born from the fact his wife Marina, son and daughter were all born in America.
Viktor Vekselberg cousins Intrater Brothers:
By ALL appearances Jonathan Intrater is zero known affiliation with Vekselberg. Johnath Intrater, serves as the Managing Director, Investment Banking Team for, Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. You cant read his full work biography, here
Mr. Intrater’s broad transactional experience encompasses public equity and high-yield note offerings, private placements of debt and equity securities, merger advisory transactions, and various debt restructuring assignments. Prior to joining Ladenburg Thalmann, he served as a Managing Director at the Brenner Securities Corporation and a Senior Vice President, BIA, Frazier, Gross & Kadlec. Mr. Intrater holds an M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania.”
From what I can tell Jonathan Intrater digital footprint is limited, there are a “few” banking industry related articles on a couple of Russian based publications but nothing onerous.
Andrew Intrater Columbus NOVA...
Eric Kosta, general counsel of Columbus NOVA issued the following statement:
“As the General Counsel of Columbus Nova, I can confirm that the company is 100% owned and controlled by Americans. Any suggestion that at any point in time Viktor Vekselberg or any of his companies owned or exercised any control over Columbus Nova is patently untrue."
The problem with Columbus Nova’s statement is, it’s factually incorrect and misleading. Why? SEC filings and FEC filings, that’s why. There are at least 26 Entities on file with the SEC, link here
Eccentex Corporation, Andrew Intrater
Mr. Intrater’s corporate bio reads in part, link to his full bio here
“... his role as head of Columbus Nova’s private equity effort, he completed a $51-million equity/debt investment in 2005 for a controlling stake in Moscow CableCom, the Moscow-based broadband MSO. He served as Chairman of the Board of this NASDAQ-listed company help realizing a gain of over 250% in share price before the company was sold to the controlling shareholder.”
FEC receipts for Andrew Intrater
It is interesting to me Andrew Intrater donated:
$35,000.00 to Trump’s Victory Fund (FEC ID ID: C00618389), FEC Report. Here
Andrew Intrater FEC Transaction ID : SA11AI.23824
I then refer you to page 11841 of the RNC FEC October 2017 FEC Report, found here
And let’s not forget about the $1M donation from Mr. Shustorovich, see page 92 of Trump’s Inauguration FEC Report & then look at page 200 for Mr. Intrater’s donation. link to FEC Report, Here
But..but...but...Columbus Nova has ZERO affiliation with Renova ...guess he better amend this FEC filing.— SpicyFiles (@SpicyFiles) May 9, 2018
Also just pointing out that Columbus Nova, biography for Andrew Intrater is now a 404...sure seems like someone or an entity is scrubbing Andrew Intrater’s digital footprint. I mean I’m sure it’s just a random coincidence that last night (before Avenatti’s Executive Summary) was released Mr Intrater’s Columbus Nova biography WAS available, see for yourself, here
Archive link to Andrew Intrater bio here
And listen I totally get Andrew Intrater being a “good family” man who just happen to give Viktor Vekselberg tickets to Donald Trump’s inauguration. But good lord why were there so many prominent wealthy Russians in attendance? As detailed by the Washington Post:
- 🇷🇺Pharmaceutical executive Alexey Repik & his wife, Polina Repik.
- 🇷🇺Natalia Veselnitskaya
- 🇷🇺Rinat Akhmetshin
- 🇷🇺Boris Titov
- 🇷🇺Victor Vekselberg
- 🇷🇺Maria Butina
- 🇷🇺Timothy Kasbe
It’s almost like the Russians have multiple “assets” placed within our Government...and Trump’s Inauguration Committee didn’t hide the fact they were selling access to Trump. See 6 page “pamphlet” here
And let’s not forget the Russian Embassy’s Jan 2017 tweet, where they straight up trolled America.
Since I’m eyeballs deep in my actual work today, I’m simply going to repost my Twitter Thread from last night where I pushed publicly available info on the 7 page Executive Summary published by Ms. Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti.
Since there are STILL some fake AF “resistance accounts” targeting and mass reporting my twitter account, (again), the archived link here
This 2012 Bloomberg Interview with Viktor Vekselberg caught my attention partly because of the Greece topic but also it comports with the change I noticed in Vekeslberg’s busines portfolio...also
