A Ukrainian oligarch with ties to both President Donald Trump and Russian dictator Vladimir Putin threatened violence over his poor seats at Trump's inauguration, reports Al Jazeera.


Pavel Fuchs is a Ukrainian oligarch of Russian origin who has previously negotiated with Trump and has business ties to Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani. He now “stands accused of making a threat of violence against a US-based businessman” over seats for the inauguration.

The billionaire oligarch paid $200,000 and was "furious" to be behind a Ukrainian member of parliament.

If Fuchs did not get his money back from the seller, he said he would "tear him apart."

Fuchs is one of the Ukrainians and Russians who is reportedly being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller and later had his visa to travel to the U.S. revoked.
