So you’ll recall that the accountancy firm that performed the extensive due diligence that you’re talking about was bought by Usmanov.
Nothing dodgy about that is there....especially after paying his lapdog £300m for shares in a company he’d actually given to him a few years earlier. No nothing strange going on there...
Strange, yes. Illegal, no. This type of stuff goes on all the time at the level of the multi-billionaire oligarch. It's how the system works, they don't subscribe
to the same ethics as you or I as they don't have to. I worked in the offshore finance industry for seven years, anything goes when huge amounts of money are involved.
