Back in March, a Belarusian woman named Anastasia Vashukevich, who went by the name Nastya Rybka, made international headlines after being arrested in Thailand for organizing a prostitution training seminar within the country.
Upon her arrest, she claimed that she had access to over 16 hours of video and audio recordings that could shed light on “Russia’s role in U. elections.” Rybka is a prostitute who worked for many of Russia’s elite.
Upon arrival in Moscow, both were detained at Sheremetyevo airport -- where Vashukevich was prevented from traveling on to Belarus and was treated roughly by plainclothes officers.
Navalny said the man was in fact Georgy Oganov, an adviser to Deripaska and a board member at one of his industrial companies.
A second recording appears to show a conversation between Deripaska and a man Navalny says is the head of the company that owned the yacht on which Deripaska, Prikhodko, and Vashukevich were shown in in the February 2018 video.
Russian lawyer and political activist, Alexey Navalny, originally reported on Rybka’s close ties to Oleg Deripaska back in February, in a report he released on Youtube.
After investigating Rybka’s Instagram page, he was able to identify a meeting which took place between Deripaska and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Prikhodko, back in August of 2016.
In a post to the organization's website on January 21, Navalny said the recordings were received several months ago, and appear to be authentic.
In one of them, three people can be heard discussing Vashukevich's then-detention in Thailand, with one man named Georgy insisting that Vashukevich and the others with her need to be kept in detention.
She had very close relations with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who has become a key suspect in the Trump/Russia investigation.
Deripaska also has close ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who at one point, had borrowed million from Deripaska.
She said both remained suspects in a case against them on prostitution-related charges and were ordered to appear for questioning at a later date.
