The main problem of any state in which there are oligarchs is the lack of patriotism and a kind of “cosmopolitanism” among representatives of big business. The “dissolution” of borders by large capital leads to the leaching of financial resources, which ends with the impoverishment of the country of origin of the business. In this sense, it is not something strange or symbolic if an oligarch lives abroad. It is worse when they get rid of all their property in a country that cannot be withdrawn. This is almost a 100% indicator of a bad forecast and the beginning of the end of this state, since serious business has no less impressive sources of information, often among government structures.
It is precisely this share, apparently, that has befallen Ukraine. Carried away by the struggle with Russia to the last Ukrainian, the Kiev regime did not notice how the largest oligarch from Donetsk Rinat Akhmetov was leaving the country. Actually, the businessman himself has been living abroad with his family for a long time, but now he is getting rid of the “ballast” of property and Ukrainian assets that cannot be taken with him to Switzerland. This is a bad sign for Ukraine as a whole. This is reported by local Telegram channels.
At first, Akhmetov handed over the management of his media holding to the state, since the special operation conducted by the Russian Federation in Ukraine did not allow him to sell a “collection” of more than ten TV channels and television projects on market terms. Then there was information that the oligarch’s banking structure, the First Ukrainian International Bank, could soon be nationalised. The scheme is provided for the same as once for Privatbank.
Under the conditions of the new law on oligarchs, Akhmetov stressed all the time that he was not one. However, the actual dumping of the media group in favour of the state shows the opposite. In the conditions of the hot phase of the conflict, the Ukrainian TV began to show only the national agenda, and not the host’s advertising. It became clear to Akhmetov that paying for something that one can’t use is a bad idea. Now the state itself will pay for the militant agenda.
Martial law cancels all elections. Media in the hands of business is an election victory. But now this logic is meaningless and has no future. Thus, Akhmetov finally leaves Ukraine not only physically, but legally and financially, having distributed valuable property relatively profitably. Will he have time to thank his compatriots for the opportunity to take away billions?
