Prokhorov Jokes: "Perhaps I Should Get Acquainted With Mugabe"

AFP

Mikhail Prokhorov doesn't seem fazed by a US congressman's charges that one of his companies violated US sanctions laws against Zimbabwe and its dictator, Robert Mugabe.

He jokingly told a writer for his "Snob" magazine that the charges and resultant publicity are part of the "usual American phobia" regarding Russians, adding, "I was expecting something like this."

He compared himself to a character in a classic Russian comedy who is wrongly accused of robbery. "It's the same with me and Zimbabwe," he added sarcastically. "It got me thinking, maybe I should go visit Zimbabwe, get acquainted with Mugabe."
