The FBI is currently at the Washington, DC home of a Russian oligarch who is a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, according to a report Tuesday.
An FBI spokesperson confirmed "law enforcement activity" at the home of Oleg Deripaska in Washington's Kalorama neighborhood, according to CNN. Another anonymous source told the outlet the investigation has been "ongoing."
The home has been closed off by police and an FBI agent has been posted at the driveway, according to CNN.
The FBI did not immediately have information on the activity.
Deripaska was placed under US sanctions in 2018 for having acted on behalf of Russia and working in the country's energy sector. He had been previously investigated for money laundering, and was accused of threatening the lives of business rivals, and engaging in extortion and money laundering, the Treasury Department said at the time.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
