Arkady Volozh, one of the founders of Russia’s tech giant Yandex and one of the wealthiest individuals in the country, publicly condemned the war in Ukraine after 533 days, calling it a «barbaric invasion». He is only the second tycoon to publicly oppose the war. None of Russia’s other leading businessmen, including those seeking to lift personal sanctions, have done so.
Why did it take him so long to say something so ludicrous as that?
Rather you should ask why so many as 2 have said it.
He has finally got the deal done with MI6 or CIA to keep his money and move to his yacht.
That is the only reason why any Russian would say that.
