The conservative party of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received donations from nine Russian businessmen. The Times informs that the names of the Russians were included in a secret report on illegal Russian activities in the UK, the publication of which was blocked last week on Downing Street, but the newspaper became aware of its contents.

The report was prepared by the Inter-Party Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC).

So, the report mentioned the former vice president and deputy chairman of the board of the Yukos oil company, Alexander Temerko, who over the past seven years, according to the report, has donated £ 1.2 million to the conservatives. Since 2011, he has been a citizen of Great Britain.

Lyubov Chernukhina, the wife of the former Deputy Finance Minister of Russia Vladimir Chernukhin, was named a major sponsor. Last year she donated over 450 000 pounds to the party. In addition, the report also mentions the name of Evgeny Lebedev - the son of Alexander Lebedev, who owns the Evening Standard London newspaper.

As reported, the British Parliament "failed" the vote for Johnson's proposal for elections in December.
