The Russian oligarch Dinkov was highly critical of his country’s “massacres” in Ukraine. Chief “fools” in the Kremlin – they now have to show the way to save face.
Russian billionaire Oleg Tinkov has accused the Russian military of carrying out “assassinations” in Ukraine. In a message on the Instagram online service, Dingov called for an end to the “mad war” against the neighboring country.
“90 percent of Russians are against this war,” wrote the foreign founder of Tinkoff Bank. Only minorities supported the war. “But ten percent in every country are idiots.”
Dingov was one of the Russian oligarchs subject to Western sanctions in the war of aggression against Ukraine.
Appeal to the West
In his Instagram post, he harshly criticized the Russian military and the leadership circle around the Kremlin boss Vladimir Putin. Dingov wrote that Russian generals now “realize they have a bad army.”
He sees in himself that “there is no beneficiary of this insane war,” which leads to the “death of innocent people and soldiers.” In English, Dinkov addressed the West: “Please show Mr. Putin a clear way that it will save face and stop this assassination. Please be more rational and benevolent.”
According to Dingo, the Russian elite is unhappy about the impact of Western sanctions on Moscow. Kremlin officials are “shocked” that they and their children can no longer spend their summer vacations in the Mediterranean. “Entrepreneurs are trying to save what’s left of their property,” Dingov wrote.
No comment from Tinkoff Bank
Tinkoff Bank said it would not comment on Tinko’s “private opinion”. The founder of the company is no longer an employee of the bank and has not been in Russia for a long time. In addition, he has had to deal with “health problems” for the past few years.
Russian authorities are cracking down on critics of the Ukrainian invasion. Reports classified by the government as “fake news” about the military could carry up to 15 years in prison.
