I have no idea if Putin is interested in what the Oligarchs want, clearly they were not in on his plan … assuming he had a plan? It is becoming clearer as the battles go on that he over estimated the quality of the forces he sent into battle and underestimated the opposition? Logistics failures abound with troops running out of food, fuel and ammunition while getting lost in unfamiliar territory. Putting the nuclear forces on alert is a dangerous move but of course he has a reputation as a gambler. Who is he going to Nuc that wouldn’t result in he personally ending up vaporized?
I wonder if he has a retirement plan … traditionally that is not how it works for dictators?

Russian Oligarchs Deripaska And Fridman Call For Peace
Mikhail Fridman, the founder of Alfa Bank, Russia’s largest private bank, became the first oligarch to speak out against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion orders, according to the Financial Times.
In the letter sent to his employees Friday and reviewed and shared by the Financial Times Sunday, Fridman, a native of Ukraine, called on the “bloodshed to end” and wrote “war can never be the answer,” though he clarified he didn’t intend for his comments to be “political.”
