Bad Idea Alert! Russian Businessman Puts a Million Dollar Price on Putin’s Head


Russian businessman and TV commentator Alex Konanykhin put a $1 million bounty on Vladimir Putin’s head, Business Insider reports.

He has called on Russian military officers to go after Putin and arrest him as a war criminal. Alex must have been chatting with Lindsey Graham. Does he think the Russians won’t come after him or that there aren’t a whole slew of criminals ready to take Putin’s place? It’s not even enough money to make it worth the risk an assassin would take.

Konanykhin said he was putting up the bounty to “facilitate the denazification of Russia.”

But, Putin said he’s de-nazifying the place as he de-Ukraine’s the place.

Konanykhin said Putin is a war criminal. He put this picture up and then Facebook deleted it:

“I promise to pay $1,000,000 to the officer(s) who, complying with their constitutional duty, arrest(s) Putin as a war criminal under Russian and international laws,” said crypto investor and California-based businessman Alex Konanykhin in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

Konanykhin claimed that Putin had violated the Russian constitution by “eliminating free elections” and “murdering his opponents.”

“As an ethnic Russian and a Russia citizen, I see it as my moral duty to facilitate the denazification of Russia. I will continue my assistance to Ukraine in its heroic efforts to withstand the onslaught of Putin’s Orda,” Konanykhin said, using the Russian word for “horde.”


After Facebook deleted it, he posted again and said he just wants him arrested, but the poster, duh!

“Some reports suggest that I promised to pay for the assassination of Putin. It is NOT correct. While such an outcome would be cheered by millions of people around the world, I believe that Putin must be brought to justice.”

Well, if nothing else Russian could transport their oil via Iran. Russia gets paid, Iran takes a cut, and WE can continue to look STUPID!

I won’t watch it but the news is what it is. Each and very time the media goes ballistic with policies they want it isn’t long before leaders capitulate.The media loves war because it’s 24 hr. content and less work for a producer (The Lazy Class) to “find” stories to cover.

I suppose that may be why oil is skyrocketing again. Of course the administration doesn’t mind because it helps fulfill the goal of ending fossil fuel. (But is it Really from fossils). No matter the ramifications.But world markets thought to save the day with 60 million barrels released. All this would end if the regular markets began to significantly crash. Those markets are fluctuating considerably but have a downward trend which isn’t enough to scare the policy makers.

And why are so many comments extremely thrilled over the idea. Even if their situation is wholly independent of oil and gas prices that energy is a major component in every sector in society. As one points out; we could return to the days of the oil embargo and have rationing. All this to destroy a foreign county and the result may be the near destruction of our own and other Western countries. Russia is using Capital controls which could likely mitigate their own local problems. I could see where Russia ends up coming out on top, even without foreign oil sales. We are bordering on, if not there already, the end of Western Civilization.

Does anyone in the West know who “might” come to power once Putin is eliminated. The West ousted Yanukovich and brought Poroshenko to power. Poroshenko open admitted he was willing to commit democide against Russian speaking people, whether man, woman or child. His inflammatory stance “allowed” other politicians, media and analysts to follow suit. Considering what is being done to Putin, and Russians everywhere, what does the West think the response will be if a Poroshenko rises to power in Russia, only against ‘outsiders’.
