Prosecutors in Milan have opened an inquiry into following an investigation by L’Espresso magazine that alleged an arrangement to sell three million tonnes of diesel to an Italian oil company by Russian representatives close to Vladimir Putin’s government.

The allegations centre on a meeting between a member of League leader and deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini’s entourage, two other Italians and three Russians in Moscow last October.

Meranda, who said he’d been a lawyer for 20 years, said the transactions had not been completed and that he was prepared to fully cooperate with public prosecutors who are now investigating the proposed deal over possible international corruption.

“I confirm that I met Dr. Glanluca Savoini and appreciated his absolute lack of personal interest in the few meetings we had in relation to these negotiations,” wrote Meranda, who said he was acting in the negotiation as general counsel for an unnamed “Anglo-American investment bank … interested in acquiring Russian oil products.”
