  • Ex-Russian Spy Pressured Manafort to Pay Debts to Oligarch

A former Russian spy on the December 19 U.S. sanctions list claims he acted on behalf of oligarch Oleg Deripaska during the 2016 presidential campaign to chase up Paul Manafort's alleged debts with his former business partner. In the company of a senior Russian diplomat and two young assistants from Moscow, he attended a conference in Greece that was organized by one of Putin's oldest friends, the former KGB agent and state railway boss Vladimir Yakunin.

Boyarkin told Time magazine that he contacted Manafort to collect the debt he owed to Deripaska.

Former United States Attorney Joyce Vance explained why President Donald Trump will be unlikely to pardon Paul Manafort, who chaired Trump's 2016 campaign.

"There's a lot information in circulation that talks about Paul Manafort's indebtedness to Russian oligarchs and his efforts to pay them back, perhaps through briefings he offered to give during the campaign", Vance reminded.

Former GRU officer, Boyarkin, claimed he "came down on him hard" on behalf of Deripaska.

Less than two weeks before Trump accepted the Republican nomination, Manafort offered in emails to a middleman, his former business associate Konstantin Kilimnik, to brief Deripaska on the 2016 presidential race, The Washington Post and The Atlantic reported past year. According to Time, Boyarkin was the "friend".

Since appearing on the sanctions list, Boyarkin has clammed up to Time, and has reportedly told Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office, which has sought to question him on possible collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, "to go dig a ditch".
