I think we should cut those £ figures by a considerable amount. Keep in mind that a pound *there* is roughly ten pounds *here*. Therefore, £18B is like 180B pounds! Elemtilas 21:20, 1 February 2006 (PST)

Okay...I wasn't sure. I took the $ figure from here and divided them by 3. I wasn't sure on the figures, so please adjust them so they're not so farsical...although I wouldn't put it past Jorge-buddy to squander 180 billion.... BoArthur 21:22, 1 February 2006 (PST)

n/m, I fixed 'em. BoArthur

Bogolyubov

Actually, I don't think Bogolyubov would really qualify as a kleptocrat. I admit, the guy was mad, but it definitely wasn't the money he was after. In fact, I think he was pretty much an ascete. The worst thief in Russia's leadership was undoubtedly one of his predecessors, Pyotr Popovich (1971-1976). —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 06:03, 2 February 2006 (PST)

Okay! Feel free to make the change...I was mostly looking around for people to fill my top ten list. BoArthur 08:18, 2 February 2006 (PST)
