“History”, which sets out the NYT, is that I supposedly have data on Russia’s intervention in the American elections, but I’m not ready to give them before I would be guaranteed immunity. Both of these allegations are untrue and are an absolute lie. I do have evidence – which, of course, frustrating to some point directly on the opposite in relation to the history of RF interference,” said Deripaska.
In addition, he notes that neither he nor his representatives did not go to Americans volunteered to give testimony, but on the contrary – representatives of intelligence and the U.S. Senate turned to his lawyer.
