‘Russians are fearful opponents in terms of international diplomacy. They are really tough when it comes to geopolitical struggle, we should give them that. I guess if the Russian government cared so much about the internal affairs like it does about the foreign affairs, Russia would be very developed state.

Experts, the military, special services, law enforcers in many countries are well aware of the threat that Russian money poses to these countries. However, many politicians treat this situation in quite different way – ‘they give us money, they invest into us, they buy our expensive real estate, and that’s cool’, Yehor Sobolev, Ukraine’s MP from Samopomich party, said in interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
