A bad day for oligarchs!

Here's a tip of the virtual hat to Lindsey Graham and all the US senators who voted yesterday to add an amendment to the last-minute spending bill that will ask the Justice Department to send the money confiscated from sanctioned Russian oligarchs to the people of Ukraine. 

Yesterday was, as Sen. Graham said, "a godsend to the long suffering people of the Ukraine. It will be a relief to the American taxpayer [and] a bad day for oligarchs."

Canada too hopes to do the same, starting with $26 million belonging to Putin's friend Roman Abramovich, who owns a couple of steel mills in the country. I can't think of a better use of sanctioned funds than to send it along to Putin's victims.
