    Oligarchs are not land owners

    Oligarchs control the exploitation of Russia’s natural resources. Can’t get much more “land owner” than that.

      Capitalists can do that as well, without being feudalists. You’re tying an ancient peasant-aristocrat structure to modern Capitalism just to avoid acknowledging that Capitalism has failed Russia.

        You’re trying to pretend that an oligarchy / dictatorship has something to do with capitalism because you hate capitalism.

          On the contrary, I’m acknowledging that Capitalist business owners have swelled and looted Russia very effectively.

              It has everything to do with Capitalism. When the USSR collapsed and the Russian Federation came into place, Capitalists got much of the Capital, and are now the “oligarchs.”
