The sick joke behind all this western outrage over "Russian oligarchs" is that Clinton White House literally created & celebrated Russia's oligarchy in the 1990s.

Another notable company in the sanctions list is Renova, a Russian conglomerate with interests in aluminum, oil, energy, telecoms, affiliated with Russia’s 10th richest billionaire, Viktor Vekselberg, who is worth $12.4 billion, according to Forbes.
