` Putin Says Oilman's Arrest
Is No Threat to Private Enterprise
The NY Times November 7th quotes Putin:
"I say officially that the Yukos case will not lead
to revision of the Russian Federation's policy in
the economic or political sphere."
Economic or political sphere? Generally, the sphere
of the Russian state.
The Times lets "an expert on Russia at Stanford
University [in California] who is a senior fellow
at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
[in Washington DC]" explain:
The targets of the campaign are the hustling
entrepreneurs who seized much of Russia's natural
resources during the last decade, [the expert]
The men in the Kremlin who are behind the campaign
"see themselves as restoring the Russian state
after this period [of looting]," he said....
The head oilman at Yukos, the Times reports, was
"financing opposition parties and charitable founda-
tions as well as academic institutions like the
[branch in Moscow]."
The Times reports:
Mr. Putin addressed that issue too. "They [= the
looters] will of course spend millions --tens and
hundreds of millions-- in order to save their
billions," he said.
"We know how that money has been spent, on what
lawyers, [on] what public relations companies
[like "academic institutions"]
and [on] what political figures."
Who knows, the men in the Kremlin may even put the
spotlight on *foreign* political figures --like the
ever-busy agents at the FBI's Moscow branch.
