This obviously tells it all but nice try again at your endless efforts to disrupt American democracy and sell out the USAl:
In 2013, Browder was tried in absentia in Russia for tax fraud, jointly in a posthumous prosecution of Magnitsky. He was convicted and sentenced to nine years in prison. Interpol rejected Russian requests to arrest Browder, saying the case was political.
We have your number, stocks. The noose awaits. Hopefully the FBI will be closing in soon.

Yeltsin had won a fraudulent election in 1996 supported by the oligarch-controlled media and by President Bill Clinton, who secured a $20.2 billion IMF loan that enabled him to buy support. Today we would refer to Clinton’s action as “interference in the 1996 election,” but at that time a helpless and bankrupt Russia was not well placed to object to what was being done to it. Yeltsin proved keen to follow oligarchical advice regarding how to strip the former Soviet Union of its vast state-owned assets. Browder’s Hermitage Investments profited hugely from the commodities deals that were struck at that time.
Browder and his apologists portray him as an honest and honorable Western businessman attempting to operate in a corrupt Russian business world. Nevertheless, the loans-for-shares scheme that made him his initial fortune has been correctly characterized as the epitome of corruption by all parties involved, an arrangement whereby foreign investors worked with local oligarchs to strip the former Soviet economy of its assets paying pennies on each dollar of value. Along the way, Browder was reportedly involved in money laundering, making false representations on official documents and bribery.

This Browder guy and his organization needs to be exposed - thanks Stocks. It also exposes another thing - if Russia is so powerful - how in the heck could it have been that stupid to have not been on top of his scheme? I have serious doubts regarding all the Russia bruhaha in the US. Yes Russia has nukes and it has oil - but it only has one air craft carrier and just how much stuff do you own that says "made in Russia". On the other hand, what other country has nukes (no oil or water by the way) but gets billions of dollars from the US every year and has a direct interest in influencing our elections? Hint - its not Russia.

Martin Armstrong: Why Has The "Magnitsky Film" That Exposes Browder's Corruption Been Banned In USA & Europe?
The Magnitsky Act Behind the Scenes has been pulled from everywhere. You do not ban a film in Europe and the United States if it is wrong. This is perhaps a huge cover-up that goes really beyond comprehension. The film was funded by ZDF TV in Europe and they have the power to prevent it from being shown despite the fact that they are taking a huge loss. They would not do that unless there was political pressure behind it.
Is this to protect the justification for war with Russia? That is why this film was shut down in Europe and the USA/Canada. It exposes the lie behind the whole affair.

My book was surprisingly well received by its readers and during the first few weeks it received very encouraging reader reviews. Unfortunately, by mid-September “The Killing of William Browder” came up on Browder team’s radar and my problems began. It seems that in the free world, the freedom of expression comes with some restrictions. Exposing Bill Browder is one of them.
On 13th September, University of Tulsa professor Jeremy Kuzmarov cited some of the materials from my book in his own Huffington Post article about Bill Browder, titled “Raising the Curtain on the Browder-Magnitsky Story.” I was flattered by that article, but Huffington Post scrubbed it from their website within hours. A week later, Amazon’s publishing company, CreateSpace “suppressed” my book, purging it from Amazon.com website and from its Kindle store.
This is not the first time Bill Browder – and whoever is backing him – has effectively censored what the Western public may or may not know about his story. In 2016, Russian film-maker Andrei Nekrasov made the documentary film, “The Magnitsky Act – Behind the Scenes.”
When Nekrasov’s film was completed, Browder took aggressive action to block its screenings. With threats of lawsuits, he prevented an already scheduled screening to a group of Members of the European Parliament in Brussels.
