The story seems to begin in 2005 when Jim invested in Facebook and joined their board. At an international tech summit in 2009 he met Kremlin backed Yuri Milner, a Russian tech entrepreneur, along with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin-Salman (MBS).

Milner and Breyer began working together through Milner’s company, DST, and then circuitously, Milner bought stock and later a board seat at Facebook and Twitter. Consequently, Russia owns 8% of Facebook and 5% of Twitter with Putin’s agent on those social media boards.
