Russian oligarch lambasts country’s ‘massacre’ in Ukraine.

A Russian oligarch Oleg Tinkov has lambasted the country’s ‘massacre’ in Ukraine and called for an end to the “crazy war”.
Tinkov wrote in a profanity-littered Instagram post that he did not see ‘any beneficiary’ of the conflict.
Mr Tinkov is one of Russia’s most well-known entrepreneurs and founded the global online bank Tinkoff Bank and owned the cycling team Tinkoff-Saxo. He is also one of the most high profile Russians to publicly condemn President Vladimir Putin’s actions.
Also, businessman Boris Mints, who worked for the Russian government in the 1990s but was discharged of his political roles four days after Mr Putin took office, has joined Mr Tinkov in voicing direct criticism of the president.
Two of the country’s most prominent oligarchs Mikhail Fridman and Oleg Deripaska have made separate calls for peace, but have stopped short of direct criticism.
