The Russian people know that caring bout those principles is a joke and complete waste of time. No matter the government they've had, they've been screwed over, be it the Tzar, the commies, the capitalists, and everyone in between. No matter the party, no matter the message, the end result has been a few people at the top stealing whatever they can get their hands on.
When have the rich people of the US, or anywhere, been ethical in their wealth? Not individual people here and there, but the whole lot? When have they not influenced politics, pushed out competition, etc?
When was the last time the super rich haven't tried to hide their wealth from governments/taxation? Because I can guarantee you even our half-human half-monkey ancestors would hide their sharpened stones and sticks or hunted animals from one another.
