a. First of all I am not an owner of the so-called Congolese Company. I don’t own any of these named on this list. More over I don’t know half of these people, Congolese people mentioned there. And this is very funny, because, as I am stating you. This history has a very strange beginning, and a very strange continuation.
b. Look, somebody is looking for me for four years, somebody is looking for me for 5 years, look, I am traveling normally, I don’t have any problem. And I am completely ok with this story. I don’t understand why these hysterical things are happening at all.
c. If you had brain, it wasn’t hard to make money in Moscow doing business. But all business in Moscow then was dirty business. You had to have protection, and protection from your protection. I said ‘I don’t need this. I am smart enough I can make money wherever I go’.
d.Arriving in Africa was like seeing wide-screen motion picture in full color for first time. Bright sky, red soil, colorful birds. Trees blooming in the streets of Maputo. Antelopes and zebras, crocs and monkeys stealing your clothes on the beach. All that with the sunsets and sounds of village drums deep inside your core.
