War: Ukraine’s forces being helped by Russia – Russian billionaire

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a former Russian oil magnate and adversary of President Vladimir Putin, has stated that Russia’s unpreparedness for the current war it declared against Ukraine surprised him.

In an interview with CNN, the former oil mogul stated that “on the ground, Russia’s corruption is assisting Ukraine’s military.”

Khodorkovsky declared this in response to US officials’ accusations that the Russian military is suffering from food and fuel shortages, as well as logistical and sustainment issues.

He called the oligarchs who are backing Putin’s invasion of Ukraine “dangerous.”

Khodorkovsky, however, said it was “preposterous” for anyone to think the oligarchs had any real influence over Putin.

“Oligarchs are not true oligarchs in the sense that they actually do not influence Putin,” he said.

“Yet they are Putin’s instruments of influence and to see for real who has broken their relations with Putin would be when they actually denounce him and when they admit that he is a war criminal.

“And if that doesn’t happen, that means they still depend on him and they’re still dangerous,” he added.
