100 Words: IT'S THE SAME OLD SONG

In an international conspiracy, Russian billionaire oligarchs use their control of a bank in Ukraine to steal billions of dollars of its funds. Then they launder the money by buying a 29-story office tower. But this one is in—gasp! Louisville! It’s the former PNC Plaza on Main Street. When the federal government seizes the bank, oligarch Igor Kolomoisky flees into self-imposed exile, first in Switzerland and then in Israel. Kolomoisky returns to Ukraine after his former business partner is elected president. Real estate, embezzlement, corruption. Haven’t we seen this murky movie before, Sen. McConnell--like during Trump’s impeachment trial?
