An International Congress of Russophiles was held in Moscow, initiated by the Bulgarian politician Mykola Malinov, against whom official accusations of espionage for the Russian Federation have been brought in his homeland.
In addition to Malinov, the congress was attended by political fringes and supporters of conspiracy theories, such as the grandson of former French President Pierre de Gaulle, who believes that "the West allowed Zelensky, oligarchs and neo-Nazis to be drawn into the spiral of war", and he came to Moscow "to cooperate peace and friendship," as well as actor Steven Seagal, who considers himself "100% Russophile and one million percent Russian."
So, such an event once again shows that there is really no world support for Russia.
This opinion was expressed by the ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Ilya Ponomaryov.
At the same time, he noted that the meeting had a new character.
For the first time, there was a mass exodus of businessmen from the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
"15 people left it, signed a letter of authority not to meet with Putin. This is a unique situation. Previously, people paid extra money to meet with Putin, but now they are thinking about how to escape. Moreover, among those who escaped were such famous persons as, for example, Alisher Usmanov, who generally said that he was going to live in Uzbekistan and work there. Or the son of the famous writer Stepan Solzhenitsyn. That is, everything was interesting there," said Ponomarev.
According to Ponomaryov, the process of disintegration of Russia's elites has already begun and will accelerate.
"From a political point of view, I believe that the process of disintegration of elites has begun.
And the fact that 15 high-ranking businessmen of the RSPP began to flee from the very meeting with Putin speaks volumes.
This is a club of big business, behind every person who was there are billions of dollars.
And further, I think that this process will only accelerate," said Ponomaryev.
At the same time, Ukrainian expert, investment banker Serhiy Fursa noted that Vladimir
met with oligarchs to once again pretend that everything is fine in Russia, and that war and sanctions are more harmful to the West than to Russia.
We will remind you that the mass media noticed the mysterious disappearance of the 20-year-old illegitimate daughter of the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Previously, Luiza Rozova demonstrated a luxurious life in Europe and gave interviews with pleasure.
