His idea is to “have assets earmarked and attached ready for when any set-aside applications are dealt with” (Cave, 2014). He envisions pursuing museum collections exhibited by Russia around the world, planes owned by Russia and sent to air shows, and even assets of Russia’s Central Bank that are used for commercial purposes (Podervyansky, 2014)." ‎· silpol
