Deripaska can't get a US visa

US authorities have long blocked the entry visa of RusAl owner Oleg Deripaska, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Russia’s billionaire had been unable to get the US visa due to suspected links to the international criminal community and attempting to control strategic businesses in the United States.

For those of you not following UK news, Deripaska is currently at the centre of a row concerning talk of a donation to the Conservative party and possible corruption involving Peter Mandelson, ex-EU Trade Commissioner.
