Hunter Biden-linked Russian oligarchs spared in latest 500-name sanctions list




So much for those vaunted sanctions

WASHINGTON — Two Russian billionaire pals of Hunter Biden were again spared from being hit by financial sanctions as President Biden announced his latest round of penalties on numerous Vladimir Putin-connected figures Friday, the Post has learned.

Though some 500 Russian oligarchs, companies and third-country sanctions evaders were hit, real estate developer Yelena Baturina and Vladimir Yevtushenkov again skated free of winding up on the list.

The White House did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment and has not offered explanation in the past as the pair dodged earlier rounds of sanctions.

The omissions have attracted the attention of House Republicans leading an impeachment inquiry into the president’s links to his relatives’ foreign business dealings.

Baturina, the widow of late Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, built her $1.3 billion fortune through real estate and investments and allegedly dined twice with Hunter Biden and then-Vice President Joe Biden at DC’s Café Milano.

For reasons that remain unclear, she transferred $3.5 million in February 2014 to a firm controlled by Hunter and his associate Devon Archer.

Archer told Congress in July that he wasn’t sure of the reason for the transfer, but bank records show that more than $2.75 million of it was transferred to another corporate entity, which Archer said that he and Hunter Biden jointly owned.

Archer testified that Baturina separately invested nearly $120 million with his company Rosemont Realty, with which Hunter Biden also was briefly associated.

Baturina attended a dinner with then-Vice President Biden and Hunter’s Kazakhstani associates in spring 2014 at Café Milano, Archer told Congress.

It’s good to know Joe

Exit question: Why weren’t these sanctions enabled when Putin invaded Ukraine?

Oh, I’m sure it’s just an accidental oversight. Strong, tough, honest Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden wouldn’t give Hunter’s business associates a pass (again) out of fear they’d drop a dime on him… would he?

The initial sanctions invoked in the spring of 2022 had zero effect on the Russian economy. They were purposeless and were intended to have the American people and others think ol joey was a tough guy. Kind of like when he took care of cornpop at the swimming pool.
