The U.S. Treasury Department is removing Russian aluminum giant Rusal from the sanctions list




Manafortís boss Deripaska wins. After 8 months of delaying sanctions Deripaskaís company Rusal is taken off the sanctions list. This story started in April in Russian press and predictably ended this way




@olgaNYC1211
Why does Deripaska keep getting these breaks? Have been following this story all year and thanks to Mnuchin, most likely under the direction of Trump, sanctions against Deripaskaís companies keep getting postponed.
Reminder Deripaska was Manafortís boss

1. China was one of the the loudest proponents

they can't make electronics without Rusal aluminum. Treasury announced over a month ago they would drop the sanctions against Rusal if Deripaska divested.

Don't get me wrong...Deripaska's a damned gangster, but this is like trying to sanction Exxon. I think they're like the second largest producer in the world. Capitalism first, sanctions second...ironic, isn't it?

3. Interesting. I can't find any information online that he's actually done so.

Russia was considering nationalizing Rusal to get around the sanctions.

4. Neither have I...

funny that they considered nationalization since privatization of a national industry is how he got the company originally.

2. Putin's calling in his markers.

First, we pull out of Syria. Now this. Trump is following orders. That might portend something or another.

6. End game?

This along with Trump ceding control of Syria to Iran and Russia is perhaps a sign of Trump getting ready to resign?

8. Dems taking control of the House, more likely.

And orders from The Big Boss to get his shit done while it's still possible. Putin sees the writing on the wall, even if Individual1 doesn't.
