And now we have one of United Russia's finest, the Duma's chief of the Ethics committee, involved in corruption? WOW!! A friend of Putin, and "anti-American at that. And he has bought a $two million dollar (US) home in the USA. And plans to travel to that mean USA to prove he is innocent. Actually, he would love to get to the USA to avoid going to a Russian prison.
If he has two million dollars to buy an expensive property in Miami, what other millions of dollars does he have hidden somewhere. haha.
