Exclusive: Sanctioned Russian tycoon hands back his private jetsBy Rinat Sagdiev and Polina Ivanova MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian tycoon Oleg Deripaska has handed back three private jets he was leasing because U.S. sanctions imposed on him last month make it impossible to keep using the planes, the firm retained by the owners to sell the aircraft said on Thursday.
