Where the ones that enabled that invariably Russians? by all means. Where the police/judges they corrupted Russian? to a man. 

As far as i remember, majority of people hunting for black slaves in Africa were also black - was it making trans-Atlantic slave trade black-controlled business?

 

 

The trans-Atlantic slave trade wasn't controlled by blacks, the "privatisation" of the ex-USSR industries was controlled by Russians, with so much faith on their country they took their money abroad as soon as possible, after paying Russian officials to "enable" them, while their countrymen freezed back home. They still do.

For the one with a short memory: https://amcmuseum.or...y/provide-hope/

Let's see: "Congress appropriated $100 million for relief for the former Soviet republics" -

compare it to

"Russia imported about $1.3bn in US food and agricultural products last year, or about 11% of all US exports to the country, according to US census data."  https://www.fin24.co...sector-20140804

 

Nice deal, isn't it?

 

 

Who says there's a deal?

No, but if you buy a company/plant/get concessions for few % of its worth thanks to the deal with corrupt politician(s) and later sell what they produce for USD in international market while avoiding paying any taxes, you couldn't care less about the worth of the rouble. Well, maybe you do, the less its worth the less it costs to pay employees.

 

But then the ones doing that were the Russians themselves.

 

For example, is William Browder Russian?

    International companies got billions from looting Russia; extra billions channeled to Western assets by  Russian criminals West became safe haven for.

 

Are you claiming he himself stole billions?

Also true. As true for the Russians as for any other post-communist state, just on a much larger scale in their case, for obvious reasons.

The West took Russian dignity and Russians themselves. The example was one of avarice and rapacity.
