So, the British political class decided to sanction Russian oligarchs, and instead they went after essentially British businessmen of Russian origin.
I don’t know much about Fridman but the guy is a relic of the nineties, and from what I have heard, he transferred most of his assets from Russia to the UK. He lives in London for fuck sakes! I have to ask, is Boris working for Putin? Because for a while, people in Russia held a grudge against what they call a “compradore elite” that makes money in Russia and spends them in locations such as London. Fridman said he has no sway over Putin, and the people making decisions in Britain haven’t got a slightest idea about how Russia works.
By sanctioning “Russian oligarchs” Boris’ government has threatened iconic British businesses, like the football club Chelsea. The football club has been the property of Roman Abramovich, another relic of the nineties that lives in the UK. Roman Abramovich has been very good to Chelsea, he has invested heavily into the club and made it win big. Now Chelsea is facing insolvency…
Chelsea fans know this…
The Chelsea fans were also allegedly booing when there was a minute of silence for Ukraine. You can’t make this up, they must be laughing all the way to the bank in the Kremlin.
The whole sanctions response has made our utilities bills higher, commodities prices are through the roof, businesses are suffering. We have to suffer because the brave Ukrainians are suffering. We have to do it for battalion Azov, Vita Zaverukha, Igor Kolomoysky, Rinat Akhmetov, Arsen Avakov, and Dmytro Yarosh. Pay up bitches, FUCK! Maybe Zelensky will play a tune with his penis at our funeral. Meanwhile enjoy the media feeding you Ukraine 24/7.
Also, in the light of absolute shambolic reporting that we have witnessed in recent days about the Ukraine crisis, we have to question the wisdom of calling every wealthy Russian guy an oligarch. Do you call Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos an oligarch? Do you journalists even know what the word means?
