    In the words of a famous character in one vaudeville, I DO NOT BELIEVE! Now it’s 20, and maybe by 24 it will fly. I don’t want to be rude, but the national composition in the leadership is more like a terry sabotage club. Example: Abramovich bought the largest-priced villa in Israel. Where is the time to take the rest?
