BBC Chair Linked to Russian-sanctioned Subsidiary Blockchain Platform

Chairman of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Richard Sharp, has been shown to have ties with Vladimir Potanin, one of Russia’s richest men.

While there has been no direct indictment for the business relationship between Sharp and Potanin, the link has stimulated media, considering the fact that Potanin has now been placed under various sanctions for supporting the Russian regime.

Potanin is not just an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin but also one of those men in his inner circle. Potanin has even been seen playing hockey with Putin before, showing the close bond between the two.
