Deripaska called about an article in The New York Times

Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska commented on the article The New York Times on testimony to Congress in exchange for immunity. This was reported in the statement of the businessman, arrived in “Газета.Ru”.

“The article published in the New York Times, may 27, under the heading “Russian seeking immunity to help in congressional hearings” (“Russian Seeks Immunity to Help Congress Panels”), but in some aspects is true but essentially false and misleading. The only truth in this article is the fact that I really want to “help” democratically elected committees of Congress acting on behalf of the American people, to establish the truth,” said Deripaska.

He also stressed that the statements about him on the “interference” of Russia in elections in the United States and the disclosure of it in exchange for immunity are not valid.

“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 Russian interference. What I am supposed to “achieve” in this soap Opera something more than justice, is simply a lie. Representatives of the intelligence committees in the House of representatives and the Senate have contacted my lawyer in Washington, but not Vice versa,” — says the businessman.

Previously, the newspaper The New York Times reported that Oleg Deripaska has offered to testify in congressional committees that are investigating the “interference” of Russia in the presidential elections if he was given immunity.
