That's not the point of my post.

But surely there are more than enough oligarchs in Kiev (they doesn't even have to have such a deep pockets like Kolesnikov have), they simply doesn't care for the hockey. Soccer is the name of the game in the city. Knowing that the budget of no name soccer team in Latvia has a budget of 2-4M $, it's easy to speculate that budgets of each Kiev's three soccer teams are at least three times as big. And I don't even want to think how unholy huge is the budget of Dynamo alone.
