Joe Biden Told Russian Oligarch to ‘Be Good to My Boy’

After Joe Biden told Yuri Luzhkov and his wife, Yelena Baturina, to be good to Hunter, she transferred millions of dollars to one of Hunter's firms.

In recent years, the Biden family has been under scrutiny for their alleged involvement in questionable business dealings with foreign entities. As more information comes to light, it becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the potential implications of these relationships. While serving as Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden allegedly had a phone conversation with Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, ex-Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov. During this call, he reportedly told them to “be good to my boy,” referring to his son Hunter Biden. This conversation allegedly took place at a party in southern Brooklyn on May 4, 2014.

Hunter Biden, along with his business partner Devon Archer, is said to have had numerous business dealings with Baturina. These dealings include a $3.5 million transfer from Baturina to a firm controlled by Hunter and Archer, as well as Baturina’s investment of nearly $120 million in Rosemont Realty, a company associated with Hunter Biden. Conveniently, while Biden has sanctioned many prominent Russians over their government’s actions, he has not sanctioned Baturina, who is a billionaire.

Additionally, the Biden family has been linked to questionable business relationships in China and Ukraine. Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were involved in a financial group called Burnham, which reportedly reached an agreement with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky for a $120 million investment into a new Burnham entity. Furthermore, a Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li, was allegedly involved in a partnership with the Biden family, with Joe Biden reportedly having coffee with Li during a 2013 trip to Beijing and subsequently writing college recommendation letters for his children.

According to one of Hunter’s former business associates, Henry Zhao, an executive interested in a partnership with the Biden family, was attracted by the potential political access provided by Joe Biden, even post-vice presidency. The associate stated, “I recall being with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer at the Peninsula Bar in New York, where Hunter took a call from his father. He told his father things were going well with Henry and [his company] and that he might need a little help getting it across the finish line.”

These allegations raise serious concerns about the Biden family’s business dealings and their potential impact on American democracy. If true, these relationships could compromise the integrity of the United States government and undermine the trust of the American people in their elected officials.

The Biden family’s questionable business dealings with foreign entities have cast a shadow over the administration and raised concerns about the potential consequences for American democracy. It is essential for the Biden administration to address these allegations and provide a transparent explanation of their business relationships. If the allegations are proven to be true, it is crucial for Congress and the Justice Department to take appropriate action to ensure that the Biden family is held accountable for any wrongdoing.
