The poorer half of the Russian population is worse off than in times of late Soviet Union while the richest are 252x richer.
It's always puzzled me how far left in the West could side with such a regime.


@sesivany you’ve got the 252% wrong. There’s no decimal point in that figure. Whatever the source of this, but it seems to rather say that it’s 25k% growth - which is staggering.

@FailForward 25k% is 250 times more which is what I wrote in the post. No matter how you describe the increase it's huge, indeed.

@sesivany right. my morning coffee did not kick in yet 😄
