Twitter mocks ‘Kremlin List’ for copy-pasting Forbes list of Russia’s richest

The US Treasury’s long-awaited ‘Kremlin List’ released early on Tuesday has been mocked on Twitter. People question why it took US officials such a long time to compose if it just copies the Forbes list of Russia’s richest.

The entire Russian government was included in the US Treasury’s ‘Kremlin List,’ which also featured many influential businessmen. The report explained that the people were selected on the basis of “individuals’ official position in the case of senior political figures, or a net worth of $1 billion or more for oligarchs.” 

Twitter promptly reacted, saying that copy-pasting from Forbes “undermines credibility.” Others tweeted that it was too broad and thus counterproductive.
