PART 2 FOLLOWS
Thanks for posting this Taxi. Really worth watching. I wonder what would have become of Russia if Putin didn't take over when he did
Yes and all these oligarchs are indeed Jewish: Berezovsky, chernoy, Khordokovsky, Guzinski and Abrahamovitch.
We should really thank the documentary makers for putting together such an excellent documentary and teaching us so much about contemporary Russian history.
‘The Yeltsin. Fearing that the population might soon have a change of heart and turn its back on reform, Yegor Gaidar and Anatoly Chubais, the chief Russian architects of the process, decided to accelerate it, selling off state resources and enterprises at little or no charge. Not long into the process, ownership of some of Russia’s most valuable resources was auctioned off by oligarch-owned banks under a scheme called “Loans for Shares.” Although they were supposedly acting on behalf of the state, the bank auctioneers rigged the process-and in almost every case ended up as the successful bidders. This was how Khodorkovsky got a 78 percent share of ownership in Yukos, worth about $5 billion, for a mere $310 million, and how Boris Berezovsky got Sibneft, another oil giant, worth $3 billion, for about $100 million.
When it came to dealing with the oligarchs, the government was generally unable to exercise much control. Since the state was very weak, these “new Russians” paid little or no taxes on their purchases. And if most American robber barons had at least created something out of nothing, the Russian oligarchs added nothing to what already was something. Virtually all their wealth came from the seizure of Russia’s raw material assets, which until 1992 had been owned and managed by the state. An oligarch’s success, in other words, almost always depended on his connections to the government officials in charge of privatizing the country’s rich energy and mineral deposits, as well as on his ability to outmaneuver or intimidate rivals. (Two senior Yukos executives have been charged with murder and attempted murder, and the mayor of Nefteyugansk, where Yukos’ major producing unit is headquartered, was murdered after criticizing the firm’s failure to pay taxes.)”
Reminds me of the Jewish carpetbaggers that came South during and after the Civil War.
At one point General Grant ordered them out of the southern areas but they appealed to Lincoln who overturned Grants order.
They weren’t able to steal from the whites because they wouldnt do business with the Jews so they preyed mainly on the blacks—lending them money or giving them credit on their crops and then charging them such interest that they couldn’t repay so the Jewish lenders seized their crops and land.
