Russia Faces Capital Flight

There are 2 comments on the story from Dec 7, 2011, titled Russia Faces Capital Flight. In it, reports that:

Capital flight from Russia, already at $64 billion this year, is likely to intensify in coming months as a weak showing by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's United Russia party in parliamentary elections heightens political uncertainty, economists said.

The net capital outflow, blamed on European banks and wealthy Russians concerned about a government shake-up, is now expected to exceed $85 billion in 2011, acting Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said late Monday.

More cash leaving Russia as the demonstrations againt Putin, et al continue. Those who have financial interests are becoming aware how serious the masses are. It seems many are waking up to this fact. Putin and his gangster cronies must realize that their worst nightmare is becoming a reality. Keep it up Russians. You are having an effect.

I would leave Russia too, but all my clients are russian drunks that hire me to perform in alley-ways. I have been shunned by men in other countries.
