The Former Boss of Chukotka
For them not in the know, Roman Abramovich is one of the richest oligarchs. At the time of the Khodorkovsky affair, Putin rusticated Abramovich to the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, albeit as Governor. Nonetheless, Abramovich got the message, and got it fast. He didn’t try to play with VVP’s cookies, no way, no how. However, does this mean that Abramovich is absolved, or, does it mean that he’s deeper in the kimchi? We’ll all have to see, won’t we?
Roman Abramovich voluntarily resigned as the deputy speaker of the parliament of Chukotka because of a law banning lawmakers from owning property abroad. Sergei Yolkin gives the gimlet eye to all of that.
