Deripaska’s mistress released from Thai prison

ATTAYA—Thai authorities released imprisoned sex worker Natsya Rybka and deported her to Russia.  When the 28 year old Belarusian was arrested in February 2018 for soliciting in Pattaya, she claimed she was Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska’s mistress and made an impassioned plea for asylum, on the basis that she was in possession of evidence that Deripaska had conspired with Trump’s election team to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Although Deripaska denied his relationship with Rybka, evidence of the contrary was leaked on Rybka’s Instagram.  In October 2017, Rybka posted a picture of herself with Deripaska which appears to have been taken in August 2016, while she was traveling around Norway on his yacht.

Pictures on Rybka’s Instagram account reveal she was onboard Deripaska’s yacht. The photo was posted on October 14, 2017, but seems to have been taken a year prior.

In 2005, Deripaska began paying Manafort $10 million per year to influence US politicians and the public.  

By the summer of 2016, Manafort had reportedly offered Deripaska inside information on the Trump campaign and 2016 presidential election.A month later, in August 2016, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko and Rybka had traveled onboard Deripaska’s yacht.  

That’s when Prikhodko was allegedly offered bribes from Deripaska, including $25 million dollars in real estate.
