  1. “As the newspaper writes, all the offshore assets of the Russian elite can be traced and made public, but this “needs political will.”’

    This has less to do with will than corruption, or?
    There is so much the West can do to harm and downright to stop mafia land’s criminal war. So, why isn’t it?
