Businessman and founder of Tinkoff Bank Oleg Tinkov renounced Russian citizenship.
He posted on Instagram a photo of a certificate of renunciation of Russian citizenship and stated that he could not "see all this and be associated with Putin's fascism." He also stressed that if not for Putin, there would be no conflict in the "DNR".
“I can’t see how my former compatriots kill and rob peaceful people just like that. I want to “unsee” it all, especially after what I had to endure in the last three years. Life is one and it is priceless. I hope that more and more businessmen will follow me and stop working for fascism, give up their businesses and citizenship, ”the businessman writes.
Earlier, five businessmen have already refused Russian citizenship: Yuri Milner, Timur Turlov, Ruben Vardanyan and Nikolai Storonsky. The father of the latter in mid-October was included in the sanctions lists of Ukraine as one of the directors of Gazprom.
