the mafia is the gov't oh NO! they embezzled billions from the russian treasury like in US...to tax free countries like cyprus or some island...what don't you just invade those islands or quasi #$%$ countries.
they launder to avoid paying tax on it. in cyprus and many islands the capital gains tax is zero versu 10% and even 30%. profit and income. working people pay 30% tax while these theives pay zero on stolen money. now what is fair. as gold is untaxed too. people pay 1% tax on real estate tax gold.
but those euros are paper..these mafia don't want euros they are just numbers in the cyber bank same with USD. these guys are using the money to buy hard assets like real estate or bonds no cash.
