Influential Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska is suing the Treasury Department, asking a federal court to lift sanctions against him that were imposed by the Trump administration.
Deripaska filed a complaint in federal court in Washington, D.C., Friday, accusing the Treasury Department and Secretary Steven Mnuchin of acting “beyond the bounds of their authority” in imposing sanctions on him under a law meant to punish Russia for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
The article goes on to state the following:
Deripaska was placed on a list of prominent Russian oligarchs and officials with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin who were sanctioned in April 2018. He was also subject to sanctions for operating in the energy sector of Russia’s economy.
