A recent report connected the BBC Chairman, Richard Sharp, to a crypto company founded by a Russian oligarch. Sharp, a former banker, is said to have invested in cryptocurrency business using a foreign firm. The said firm was founded by one of the Russian oligarchs and was recently sanctioned due to the Russian-Ukraine war.
The Guardian reported Sharp’s investment in Atomyze, a Swiss crypto firm, in 2019. According to the report, the chair of the British Broadcasting Corporation used a firm known as ABCP GP Ltd for his investment.
