Putin Chews Out Billionaire Oligarch, 2009 Video

Even oligarchs fear Putin. Billionaire Oleg Deripaska (Jewish) is among those chewed out as “cockroaches” in the 2009 video.

Background info: In 2009, workers in a factory town blocked a road in protest of unpaid wages and declining living standards. Putin, like a tsar of old, saved the day by forcing unpaid wages to be paid immediately.

It’s difficult to know whether Putin is truly being helpful here (incomplete data), but it is refreshing to see an oligarch chewed out. Classic Putin.

H/T: Roho.

      In Soviet Russia, oligarch fears you.

      This might all be for show. According to wikipedia: Deripaska is married to the daughter of Valentin Yumashev (Yeltsin’s [supposedly] powerful ex-chief of staff) and Deripaska is “on friendly terms” with Putin.

      It’s a hilarious video regardless.
