A Russian Businessman operating out of the United States has offered one million dollars to the officer or officers who arrest Putin as a war criminal. In a Tuesday Facebook post, Alex Konanykhin announced that he had put a bounty on Putin’s head. Konanykhin says that . Putin is a war criminal for invading Ukraine. He says that Putin is breaking Russian and international laws.
I promise to pay $1,000,000 to the officer(s) who, complying with their constitutional duty, arrest(s) Putin as a war criminal under Russian and international laws.”
“Putin -is not the Russian president as he came to power as the result of a special operation of blowing up apartment buildings in Russia, then violated the Constitution by eliminating free elections and murdering his opponents.”
Konanykhin is telling the Russian military that it is a constitutional duty to arrest Putin, because they are the only ones who can,
“Such a regime cannot be removed through elections, he doesn’t have any parliamentary opposition, he doesn’t have media [against him], and every type of organized opposition is wiped clean,” he said at the time. “It would have to be removed by force — and there is no such force, domestically or internationally.”
“I would love to be wrong, I really hope in a year I will be able to say ‘Jesus, how wrong I was in this interview’ — but 29 years ago I saw what has happened now,” he said. “I saw no scenario in which the KGB would not regain power and would hold it for the foreseeable future — so at that time I made the decision to leave the country.”
`By 1992, the Post noted, Konanykhin’s companies that he owns were worth $300 million. What must he have by now?
