I googled it. Nothing came up. What did I miss?

I was being a smart arse about something relating to commoners doing posho sports 😉

There is a Polo club over here now though if you fancy a Chukka and some Pims?

As someone who doesn't know a lot about Russia, what's the reason behind them all dying?  Were they all putting pressure on Putin to stop his nonesense? I'm guessing sanctions would hit them hard (ish) but not enough to top themselves.

 

Most worked for oil and gas companies which are probably funding a lot of the activity.

Just wait till all those mothers, sisters and grandmothers discover what's really been happening. If he thinks the oligarchs were giving him a hard time...

Many of them already know. Ukraine has been intercepting mobile phone calls from Russian frontline soldiers to friends and family in Russia daily, since the war began. 

There are several YouTube channels that play some of the calls along with translation. Here's a recent video from one of them, and I recommend checking out more of his channel.

It's actually kind of difficult to tell where the Govt ends and where private business/Oligarchs begin.  There's always a Governor's son or Minister's best friend as a director of all their 'private' companies. 

So it's also difficult to say why exactly this is happening.  It's either Putin clearing the decks to regain control or there is an underground resistance against him hence the bombing of his 'advisors' daughter' a few weeks ago.  Or possibly a mixture of both. 

It's not the Ukrainians (directly) as there is too much collateral damage going on (wives and daughters).

they probably died about 1 second before their bank accounts magically emptied.
