Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska's U.S. Assets Frozen, Including NYC Mansion

The New York City mansion of Oleg Deripaska—the Russian oligarch very closely linked to Paul Manafort—has been frozen alongside all of his U.S. assets, according to the New York Post. U.S. officials say Deripaska, who made his billions in aluminum, is close with Vladimir Putin and is allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering. His assets include a mansion at 11 East 64th St. but he has reportedly arranged to have the children and ex-wife of business partner and fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich live there in his place. Deripaska bought the East Side property for $42.5 million in 2008, property records show.
