    It is funny to hear US-american journalists saying with so much indignation that the oligarchs stole from the Russian People. Well yes. But what makes them so different? All those horrible super-rich corrupt families with huge influence in politics like the Trumps could as well be called American Oligarchs

    You cant even begin to imagine how much Russian folks appreciate the West finally getting to those oligarchs and everything they’ve stolen. Serves them right 🙂

    Putin isn’t just a tool of the oligarchs. The fact that he reined them in and jailed a couple of them is a big reason for his popularity in Russia.

    It’s naive to think that they got their wealth by luck

    Putin’s Russia is no different from Communist Russia. The Oligarchs are “the State”. There is (or was until a couple weeks ago) a veneer of freedom with Western consumer goods and fast food but the media is still massively controlled, with propaganda and alternative “facts” covering inconvenient truths (like Fox News and Putin/Russia fans on Right wing media do in the US), dissenters being disappeared, and the vast majority of wealth in the hands of a privileged few “party members.”
