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

@yogthos
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.
