One of the most captivating political soap operas in Russia has come to an abrupt end with the sacking of Moscow\’s embattled mayor, Yuri Luzhkov.
OK, pretty pissed. But we can measure how pissed they are by what happens next:
They also attacked his property developer wife, Yelena Baturina, saying her $2.8bn fortune had been acquired thanks to her husband\’s job, a claim she denies.
If they go after that then they\’re really pissed.
Of course, the idea that such a fortune is entirely coincidental is entirely laughable. So, do they get to retire (or even shout and fight?) while keeping the dosh or does the loss of power mean the loss of the cash?
