Wealthy Russians escape from the West back home

Maria Zakharova, an official spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, wrote on her Facebook page that the Office of the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation receives many calls and emails from Russians living in other countries, who ask the department to help them or their relatives return to Russia due to the closure of flights and borders. According to Zakharova, some “very rich” people called and said they wanted to send a private jet to London “to pick up their boy who has been living there for a long time and fly him over to Moscow.” When the person was asked why they wanted to bring the boy back home to Russia, the caller responded that the British authorities canceled health insurance policies for foreigners, so every foreigner residing in the UK now has to pay a lot of money for healthcare services.
“You have been fooled for so many years and you have been paying for it – you have been paying gold for decay, for an illusion, instead of supporting your country and your people, who, with titanic efforts, patience and love have been restoring after the collapse of the USSR and chaos of the 1990s,” responded Zakharova.
“You were buying real estate and building business there, but when you were shown the door, you are standing in lines at airports of the world screaming: “We are Russian citizens!” while blowing dust off your Russian passports,” Zakharova wrote.
