Who needs the battle of the oligarchs in Ukraine


Kolomoisky openly challenged the government, and lost. Perhaps it is the first time that an oligarch and public affairs in Ukraine act as two separate entities, and even fighting each other. The defeat of the former governor of Dnipropetrovsk however could hide unexpected risks.

Kolomoisky openly challenged the government, and lost. Perhaps it is the first time that an oligarch and public affairs in Ukraine act as two separate entities, and even fighting each other. The defeat of the former governor of Dnipropetrovsk however could hide unexpected risks.

If Dnipropetrovsk is not facing the same fate of Donetsk, it is due to Igor Kolomoisky. Exactly how Donetsk has to blame Rinat Akhmetov for most of his misfortunes. But if the most powerful man in Dnipropetrovsk has avoided that his city, and his business, end up in the middle of the war, he did not do it either for patriotism or for philanthropy. If the oligarchs put something above the biznis, well, they wouldn’t be oligarchs.
Who has known the Ukraine before this war perhaps already knows what I mean. Lying in the deep Southeast of the country, Dnipropetrovsk is an industrial city filled with soviet prefabricated block and chimneys, inhabited by a big group ethnic Russians and a big majority of Russian-speaking people. Founded by Russian, with the name of Ekaterinoslav, and always watching east, culturally and economically. For instance, that’s where intercontinental ballistic missiles of Russian warheads and space launchers are built. Dnipro, as youngsters call it, until a year ago had the same explosive potential of Donetsk and Luhansk. And maybe, it still has it.
