Anti-Putin Campaigners: It’s Time to Sanction the Large Adult Sons of Oligarchs and Cronies
ATTILA KISBENEDEKBack when he was still running Russia’s FSB, Nikolai Patrushev, a longtime Putin crony who now heads the Russian Security Council, famously referred to himself and his colleagues as representatives of the “new nobility.”Nepotism is now breeding a new generation of Russian “nobles,” who are poised to take over the Kremlin upon the retirement of their fathers. These princelings—some of whom already occupy exalted positions in the government and the corporate world—are accused of benefiting from their parents’ money, mostly stolen from the state, via off-shore accounts. They also travel abroad and educate their children in America and Europe, while paying homage to the Kremlin leadership, which portrays the West as an enemy.Anti-corruption campaigners claim that the children of the officials and oligarchs who enable Putin’s repressive kleptocracy are effectively being used to evade Western sanctions, and must be targeted themselves in order to deter the Kremlin from future criminal behavior.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Andrew Cuomo, including his defense that he was just trying to be “playful” with his female employees, the host said, “Guys, of course he was being playful! I mean, imagine your much older, politically powerful boss turns to you and says, ‘When was the last time you were really hugged?’ That’s super playful!
