Navalny found 2016 videos of Deripaska on his yacht with Sergey Prikhodko, Russia's deputy prime minister, and said Deripaska could have been bribing Prikhodko and offering information about the 2016 US election he had received from Manafort.
Footage of the billionaire sailing on a yacht with deputy prime minister Sergei Prikhodko, where it is claimed bribes were exchanged, is now online. He also quoted from her book "A Journal: How to Seduce a Billionaire" - in which, according to Navalny, Rybka refers to Deripaska as "Ruslan" and Prikhodko as "Papa".
Prikhodko added that Navlany "confusingly mixed everything possible and impossible - from my friend (Oleg Deripaska) to the American President Trump and Manafort, who I do not know personally". Prikhodko said the issue would have to be settled "man to man", and Deripaska accused Navalny of trying to ruin his reputation.
Deripaska won a court injunction ordering the video to be taken down, along with six other videos and 14 Instagram posts.
Deripaska filed a lawsuit against Vashukevich and her acquaintance Alexander Kirillov on February 9. Ms. Vashukevich removed the material from her Instagram account, but as of late Thursday, Mr. Navalny's investigation was still available on YouTube.
A member of Navalny's team posted a screen shot of a message the team allegedly received from YouTube and Google, demanding that he take down one of the videos where he discusses the allegedly corrupt dealings.
Soon after, Deripaska hit Navalny with a court order for the removal of 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos.
According to Navalny, the video shot by Rybka shows her, Deripaska, and Prikhodko talking about how the deputy prime minister met Victoria Nuland, at the time the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs and a frequent critic of Russian Federation. The government's media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, then gave YouTube and Instagram three days to take the videos down or be investigated. He tweeted that both sites were up and running in Russian Federation, but could be shut down Wednesday night. It is up to interpretation whether the "public interest" exception would include Deripaska, who is known to be close to Putin and whose companies do business with the Russian Federation. The court instructed Russia's communications watchdog, Roskomnadzor, to enforce its decision.
