The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre successfully dodged questions thrown at her by the reporters on Monday regarding the two Russian billionaires and their connection with the Biden family.
Jean-Pierre refused to give an explanation about two billionaires from Russia, who are directly associated with Hunter Biden and not facing any U.S. sanctions despite being involved in the Ukraine and Russia conflict.

The two billionaires, Yelana Baturina and Vladimir Yevtushenkov, were directly engaged with Hunter Biden as they were looking for property investments in the U.S. during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.
The information about the Russian billionaires’ collaboration with the first son was procured from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop which he left abandoned at a Delaware repair shop.
The reporter questioned:
“If you could share the reason why President Biden hasn’t sanctioned the Russian billionaires Vladimir Yevtushenkov and Yelena Baturina? How is he handling the conflict of interest there given his son was a business associate of these two people? And can you confirm that, as sitting vice president, he dined with Baturina in Georgetown?”
While deflecting, Jean-Pierre responded:
“I’m just not speaking to anything that’s related to his son from here. If you want to ask a question about Hunter Biden specifically, I would refer you to his family. And as it relates to any sanctions, I’m not speaking to individual persons from Russia.”
It was reported last week that the two Russian billionaires also met the then-Vice President Joe Biden for a dinner and also talked about potential “favors” they could swap.
