The multimillion-pound mansion is connected to Oleg Deripaska‚ a Russian oligarch who is under sanctions from the United Kingdom and US. Previously‚ he was one of the richest men linked to President Putin‚ and made billions by selling shares in Russia's aluminium industries. Oleg Deripaska's wealth and political connections led him to buy the Belgrave Square mansion for an estimated PS25 million.
