The feds have frozen Oleg Deripaska, the aluminum billionaire and Russian oligarch assets in the US, The Post reports.

US officials told The Post Deripaska is close both with Russian president Vladimir Putin and Russian mob leaders and that he is on the sanctions list because he is allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering.

“According to Treasury officials,” The post adds, “when the government freezes assets, that means anyone who does business with a sanctioned person, and sanctioned companies could be subject to sanctions themselves.”

Deripaska’s assets include huge mansions both in Washington, DC and in Manhattan at 11 East 64th St. which he bought for $42.5 million in 2008.

But, The Post has learned that Deripaska beforehand has arranged to have oligarch Roman Abramovich’s children and ex-wife live within the house.

Abramovich, Deripaska’s business partner, transferred $92 million worth of property to his ex-wife, Dasha Zhukova, who listed her address as 11 East 64th St., according to property records.

Zhukova an editor and patron of the arts is dating Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos. he ex-husband Abramovich is reportedly dating Deripaska’s estranged wife, Polina Deripaska.

The feds are also negotiating with Deripaska to give up some of his European-based operations to keep them running free of sanctions, Treasury officials tols the Post.

The New York Times reported last month that FBI agents tried unsuccessfully to flip Deripaska in exchange for information on Russian organized crime — and Russia’s aid to President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

The Times reported Deripaska had previously worked on a “thwarted effort” to rescue an FBI agent who had been captured in Iran.
