Vice PM says no oligarchs in Russia, only "good businessmen"
According to Russia's Vice Prime Minister, only "good businessmen" are now working in the country.
Speaking to Bloomberg TV's correspondent during a forum in Davos, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich says that there are no oligarchs in Russia.
According to the official, an oligarch is a character from the 90's.
"Now we have only good businessmen, socially responsible people who care about the country and earn money, running responsible business," Dvorkovich says, responding to a question about the ‘well-being’ of the oligarchs in connection with the new sanctions.
As for the sanctions, according to the Vice PM, they make life of the businessmen more difficult, but still bearable.
Earlier on January 24, during the session of the Davos forum Strategic Outlook: Russia, Dvorkovich says responding to a question about sanctions upon the Magnitsky Act: "We are worried about people, not the sanctions."
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs.
