Carter Page meets with Russian and Rosneft Officials

On December 8, 2016, one day after Russia’s transfer of 19.5%  interest in Rosneft to a Cayman Island Limited Liability Company, Carter Page arrived in Russia.  (Who visits Russia in the winter?).   Page left Russia on December 13, 2016.    Later Page testified before Congress that during his December trip to Russia, he met with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich and Rosneft’s Investor Relations Chief Andry Baranov.    These are exactly the same two Russian officials Page met with in Moscow in July.     There has been very little public attention given to Page’s December sojourn in Moscow, shortly after which Michael Flynn’s conversations with Russians about sanctions were discovered by U.S. intelligence agencies.
