Best Purchase of Russian Secrets You Can Make - Veteran Russia Correspondent Publishes Memoirs (John Helmer)

This post first appeared on Russia Insider


John Helmer is the longest serving foreign correspondent in Russia; he has been reporting from Moscow since 1989, and shortly before Christmas, he published his memoirs.

Not by coincidence, at the same time the US Treasury’s Office for Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued its sanctions de-listing announcement for Oleg Deripaska's main companies, Rusal, EN+ and Eurosibenergo.

When the original April 6 announcement of the sanctions against Deripaska was issued by OFAC, attempted murder was mentioned, but it wasn't Deripaska's attempt on Helmer. Hillary Clinton and her deputy at State, William Burns, covered that up. The $1 million Clinton bribe; the plot to sell General Motors’ Opel division to Deripaska; the Australian Government's involvement in the assassination attempt against the reporter to protect a multi-billion dollar alumina trade with Deripaska -- all this and more in the book.
