Oleg Deripaska sued Nastya Rybka in absentia and won compensation in a courtroom in the Krasnodar region of Russian while the escort is incarcerated Thousands of miles away in Thailand
A Russian oligarch who worked with Paul Manafort has won a suit against the Instagram model and sex trainer who says she has information about meddling in the 2016 election.
Oleg Deripaska, a metals magnate who came under U.S. sanctions earlier this year, filed suit against Nastya Rybka after she shared videos of him, Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko and herself on a yacht off the coast of Norway in August 2016.
The video from Rybka, who has written a book about seducing billionaires, went largely unnoticed until Russian anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny spotted Prikhodko in it and heard him and Deripaska discussing a U.S. State Department employee.
