Sechin and Chemezov are from KGB, run government owned companies and are rich. Not to mention that Putin was in KGB.
OK, so what exactly then that disproves my point? You just proved my point how two specific guys are former KGB and rich. Putin was one of the few that got from KGB that was actually good and doesn't mean he is 100% honest either which he is not. But I doubt about his wealth.
As well, there is a difference between an open conflict vs making oneself rich. Apples to orange comparison but you Americans are very good at that it seems. Its a common knowledge here in Canada that Americans like to make false comparisons.
To elaborate - I highly doubt the FSB are intentionally assisting Ukraine by allowing them to strike at their own country or allowing SBU agents to do shit or whatever. VS making themselves rich.
But you guys are the experts so whatever. I know Russian leadership and intelligence agents listen to you guys on a daily basis.
