Ukraine: War and Crisis to Enrich Tycoons
April 28, 2015

In February 2014 a coup took place in Ukraine to serve the interests of big geopolitical players and tycoons, but not grassroots. The first ones wanted to start an offensive against Russia, the second ones wanted to take advantage of instability and promote their business interests… The war unleashed by the government in the eastern part of Ukraine resulted in death and impoverishment of common people.

February 21, 2015

About a quarter century ago oligarchic capitalism started to grow in the soil of Ukraine. It is based on «natural selection» – oligarchs devour small and medium businesses, as well as state assets. With primitive capital accumulation resources coming to an end, oligarchs begin to devour each other… After the coup of 2014 the «natural selection» process in Ukraine abruptly accelerated… Rinat Akhmetov once was the leading oligarch in Ukraine, now he has left the world 100 wealthiest people list. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index brought him down from 88th to 121st… Now Petro Poroshenko and Igor Kolomoisky are reaching the final…
