(Damn it. We want our lives back.)

Bob Mueller cannot conduct his investigation without hunting Semion Mogilevich. There’s simply no way.

Alfa Bank, the one suspiciously pinging a server in Trump Tower during the election? That’s Semion. Officially, the bank/company belongs to Mikhail Fridman and his partner, Pyotr Aven. But the unofficial partner - the “Alpha,” is Semion Mogilevich.

We believe Alfa is the bank that holds Don Semyon’s mob profits. On our charts (and in the bibliographies and timeline), we’ve shown you some of the MEN – Americans and foreign-born nationals, who are tied to and/or controlled by Mogilevich.

These MEN, and many powerful others, are the individuals we believe carry out the acts that both generate Semion’s mob profits and wash them clean.

It is Semion’s MEN, who now rope in the businessmen and politicians. His MEN, who launder his money and expand into new territories, while shoring up the wealth in old ones. This information is easily found just under the surface. The Steele Dossier showed us that. All our lawmakers, investigators, and journalists have to do is scratch – and there it all is.

So...why are WE the ones bringing their names to you? Ugh... we wish we weren’t. We wish journalists and lawmakers were doing their jobs. We understand that the corporatization of news and the proliferation of dark money in politics have brought new barriers to truth-telling. And we can find the ties between these barriers - and the institutions who should be hunting this Mob, with the men who work for Don Semyon.

In addition to our charts, we are highlighting some names here: men, who we found particularly significant in our hunt.

 

LEN BLAVATNIK

Though not on our “org chart” this round, we must bring this name up now.

If you are wondering why the GOP has been reticent, if not outright obstructing, the Trump-Russia investigation, know this:

“During the 2015-2016 election season, Ukrainian-born billionaire Leonard ‘Len’ Blavatnik contributed $6.35 million to leading Republican candidates and incumbent senators. Mitch McConnell was the top recipient of Blavatnik's donations, collecting $2.5 million for his GOP Senate Leadership Fund under the names of two of Blavatnik's holding companies, Access Industries and AI Altep Holdings, according to Federal Election Commission documents and OpenSecrets.org.”

Len Blavatnik is also Mikhail Fridman’s partner.

OLEG DERIPASKA (“OVD”)

In addition to all we have on Deripaska in our bibliography, please note the following additional ties between OVD, political operative Paul Manafort, and the GOP:

Paul Manafort’s work for Oleg Deripaska began in 2000-01. Manafort was hired by Deripaska to do PR for Vladimir Putin in 2006. https://www.apnews.com/122ae0b5848345faa88108a03de40c5a

Paul Manafort offered to give Oleg Deripaska private briefings on Trump's 2016 campaign, while Manafort was Trump's campaign manager. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/manafort-offered-to-give-russian-billionaire- private-briefings-on-2016-campaign/2017/09/20/399bba1a-9d48-11e7-8ea1- ed975285475e_story.html?utm_term=.074db19e2c7d

Ukrainian money linked to Paul Manafort associates in Ukraine was laundered through AsiaUniversalBank (AUB) in Kyrgyzstan. The board of AUB consisted of three former senators, one of whom was Bob Dole. http://thediplomat.com/2017/03/paul-manafort-and-the-kyrgyz-connection/

Paul Manafort was the convention manager for Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign.

Bob Dole was intially hired by Oleg Deripaska in 2000 to work on Deripaska’s problem obtaining a US visa. Dole handed the case off to Paul Manafort, after introducing him to Oleg Deripaska. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/03/paul-manafort-tried-help-russian-oligarch- oleg-deripaska-suspected-mob-ties-gain-us/

 

DMYTRO FIRTASH

In addition to all we have on Firtash in our bibliography, please note the following here on his ties to RosUkrEnergo/Gazprom and Paul Manafort:

RosUkrEnergo is 50% owned by Gazprom directly. Firtash admitted he was only allowed to go into the energy business after receiving approval from Semion Mogilevich himself.
http://foreignpolicy.com/2014/03/19/married-to-the-ukrainian-mob/

Paul Manafort is linked to a $9.9 million debt in Cyprus - also linked to Ukrainian PM IVAN FURSIN, who is Dmitry Firtash's listed business partner in RosUkrEnergo. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/19/us/politics/paul-manafort-russia-trump.html https://www.thedailybeast.com/mueller-reveals-new-manafort-link-to-organized-crime

You never leave The Mob. Especially, Don Semyon’s.

This is the reason Bob Mueller’s interest in Paul Manafort is centered on crimes as far back as January 2006 (if not further). Where was Paul Manafort working then? In Ukraine, for the pro-Russia candidate, VIKTOR YANUKOVYCH.

It was January 2006 when Russia and Ukraine ended a dispute and agreed to a new gas deal between RosUkrEnergo and Gazprom. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2006/jan/05/russia.ukraine

We suspect that we’ll see Mueller’s investigation take us even further back with Manafort and future characters to be indicted. http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/19/politics/mueller-manafort-pressure-decade- investigation/index.html

Perhaps at that point, mainstream media/press (MSM) AND our lawmakers will shirk off the authority and control of the dirty money fueling their coffers. They can pick up this story in a cohesive narrative – rather than the million little pieces, over three + decades, that we had to mine in order to put it together ourselves. In order to bring it to you.

If and when that happens, we hope to return to our lives. TIME WILL TELL...
