Deripaska explained the lawsuit to the U.S. Treasury

Oleg Deripaska said that he spent 30 years "to create companies that are the main players in the world economy", and will not allow this work "to be destroyed by political intrigues»

Businessman Oleg Deripaska, commenting on the filing of a lawsuit against the us Treasury, said that the presumption of innocence — a fundamental principle of the us judicial system, said in a statement received by the RBC.

"I believe that the courts in the United States are objective enough to protect American law and the Constitution. If the OFAC has any evidence in favor of their unfounded rumors and insinuations, it's time to present them," the businessman said. Earlier it became known that Deripaska sued the us Treasury Department and the Office of foreign assets control (OFAC), as well as the heads of these departments — Steven Mnuchin and Andrea Gaki.

In the lawsuit, all the accusations against the businessman are called groundless, in addition, the protection of the businessman connects them with the political struggle in the United States because of the alleged "Russian interference" in the presidential elections of 2016. Due to the restrictions and accusations made by the American side, the businessman lost $7.5 billion, the lawsuit said.

Most of the charges are based on rumors more than 20 years ago, which remain unproven today, the statement of claim says. Therefore, they are individually and generally irrelevant as a criterion for inclusion in the sanctions list.

The consequences of the illegal sanctions on Deripaska have been "absolutely devastating" to both his property and his reputation, the lawsuit alleges. In fact, the businessman was removed from the international business community and the global financial system. Banks and companies have broken contracts and agreements with him and now refuse to cooperate, fearing secondary sanctions, according to this document.

Deripaska writes that the us authorities to strengthen the sanctions influence went abroad and with threats of sanctions demanded that banks and companies to stop transactions with him and his structures. For example, they visited Cyprus and Belgium — the financial institutions of these countries after such meetings began to block his accounts.

Deripaska through the court demands to exclude his name from the sanctions list and the "Kremlin report", as well as to provide evidence that was used in the imposition of sanctions.

The lawsuit was filed a month and a half after the U.S. Treasury lifted sanctions against companies Deripaska — UC Rusal, En+ and "EvroSibEnergo". To this end, he signed with an American Agency agreement, the terms of which can not vote for the package more than 35% of the shares in En+, and also reduced their share from 70 to 44 and 95%. At the same time sanctions against the businessman remained in force.

"I have spent 30 years of my life building companies that are major players in the global economy, and I will not allow this hard work — along with millions of jobs — to be destroyed by political intrigue," he added. Earlier it became known that Deripaska sued the us Treasury Department and the Office of foreign assets control (OFAC), as well as the heads of these departments — Steven Mnuchin and Andrea Gaki.
