In an attempt to deflect and marginalize the recently-announced American sanctions against oligarchs connected to the patronage of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin denied this week there are any ‘oligarchs’ in the country.

“There are no oligarchs in Russia,” Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“I think the phrase “Russian oligarchs” is inappropriate.” Instead, Peskov used the term “representatives of big business.”
