Almost always priority in the mass “transfer” of foreign assets in favor of the pro-Putin elite was given to foreign capital, including companies actually owned by Russians, but which managed to go abroad.

The NBN writes, citing the official X-account of the UK Ministry of Defense.

As British military intelligence analysts learned, since the Russian Federation’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Moscow has taken under state control no less than 180 companies, the value of which, apparently, totals up to about 11.5 billion US dollars.

In addition, the Russian government is thoughtfully redistributing assets to local businesses affiliated with the Kremlin, in particular by rewarding the “elites” who openly support the war in Syria and Ukraine.

The UK Ministry of Defense has added ;- such “deprivatization” or simply “nationalization” seems to be associated with the call of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin in his address to the local society in February 2024 regarding the formation of a “new nationalist elite”. Also, the increase in spending on the defense sector sharply increased financial pressure on the Russian Federation, due to the introduction of economic sanctions and the subsequent outflow of capital from Russia.

Thus, the Russian Federation is likely to establish the maximum possible control over companies in “strategic” industries, first of all, in defense.

Earlier we wrote that British intelligence named the number of soldiers whom the Russian Federation throws monthly “into the furnace of war”.
