Where the Real Money Is

Apparently, it’s in peddling cell phones in West Armpit, Russia:

The Baikal Finans Group, which listed its address as the same as that of a cellphone store in Tver, won a controlling stake, or 76.79 percent of the shares, in Yuganskneftegas with a bid equivalent to about $9.35 billion.

Tver, a city about the size of Las Vegas (but not nearly as lively), is about 170 miles northwest of Moscow.

So the natural gas division of Yukos Oil, Russia’s biggest petroleum company, has either: A) Just been sold to some fast-talking cell phone salesman; or, B) been snatched up by the Kremlin. Ahh, hmm, let’s see now.

I’d say “B”.
