Russia Has ‘Oligarchs,’ the US Has ‘Businessmen’
In 150 NYT, CNN and Fox articles, ‘oligarch’ seems reserved for Slavic billionaires.

because more then the half you are called Oleg or Olek.
go figure.

@jackiemoon @yogthos

And another half is called Boris, isn’t?

We have way more Andreys, Alexanders, Alexeys, Mikhail and Nikolais than Olegs (not Oleks - this is wrong spelling). There is only one famous Oleg (Deripaska).

@klomb @yogthos

you must be russian, because you hate polaks and ukranians.
olek is for alexander in polaksky and oleksiy in ukranian(krimsky).

@jackiemoon @yogthos

Not to say 'Oleg' is a full formal name while 'Olek' (if ever) is informal.


The more you know :)

PS: my grandmother was called Olek, but that's a different story.
