But the Guardian who we tend to believe suggests otherwise

But according to the Guardian, while the company was not subject to sanctions, Jordan’s ties to some of Russia’s most powerful individuals are “undeniable.”

According to the report:

  • Jordan was one of Russia’s most well-known foreign investment bankers in the ‘90s, and even said he “once had a close relationship with Putin”
  • Jordan chaired an insurance company backed by Roman Abramovich, who has been subject to sanctions
  • Abramovich associate Andrey Blokh is Curaleaf’s second-biggest shareholder
  • Louise Shelley, founder and executive director of the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Centre, said the potential flow of Russian money into US businesses like Curaleaf is worthy of scrutiny

Jordan’s attorney, Victoria McEvedy, called the questions and rumours “a broad fishing expedition.”

“Boris Jordan is a native-born American of Russian and Ukrainian ancestry with business interests in the United States, Europe and Russia,” reads a statement from the lawyer.“His sole business interest in Russia is a minority stake in the shares of a retail insurance company that serves middle-class customers.”
