The Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control identifies Andriy Derkach as a Russian agent, noting that he has worked for Russian intelligence for at least a decade. Derkach is a member of Ukraine’s parliament.

Derkach has been actively working alongside Rudy Giuliani and contacting U.S. lawmakers to interfere in the 2020 election. U.S. intelligence first identified Derkach’s involvement with Republicans a month earlier.

In 2019, Derkach sent letters to Sen. Lindsey Graham, Rep. Devin Nunes, and then-acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. He then met with Rudy Giuliani in November and/or December. At the same time, Giuliani met with Ukrainian prosecutor Yuri Lutsenko who he’d been communicating with since January 2019 if not earlier.

In 2000, Derkach’s father — Leonid Derkach — was recorded discussing Vladimir Putin’s relationship with transnational mafia boss Semion Mogilevich.

The Treasury also identifies and sanctions three other Russians for their role in the Internet Research Agency. Their names are Artem Lifshits, Anton Andreyev, and Darya Aslanova.
