  1. ''They do not trust their own Russian state to leave them and their assets alone'', yet the same people have no problem stealing money from the Russian people and from their bank, in order to get wealthy themselves. Because when THEY do it, its okay, of course! they just dont like it when the Russian state tries to do it to them.

  2. Re, Al Jazeera I'll say IT once more, before spreading something to harm people, do your so-called research FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE INITIATION OF THE INVESTMENT SCHEME. Why Cyprus initiated the scheme, why WAS THE HAIRCUT and stop shaving US READERS HERE. Btw, all these people were all checked and the time the passports were given they complied with all the regulations set by the government which btw has more strict regulations from your local Bank you hold your account. If you want to do a REAL REPORT check other jurisdictions and then we talk again. Btw, have you lost audience and you are looking for viewers or your Boss friends ask you to do so. ΑΝ ΕΣΙΗΣ ΝΟΥ ΚΑΤΑΛΑΒΕ
