Many oligarchs are fundamentally opposed to the war, but only a handful have spoken out in this spirit publicly , the newspaper notes. Several of them admitted in an interview with “FEET” that they are afraid to publicly oppose the Kremlin, because it threatens retaliation – the daily reveals. says the court decision on Deripaska’s hotel came when the Kremlin once again ordered him to stop criticizing the invasion after the billionaire said in June that “the destruction of Ukraine would be colossal mistake”.
