Not entirely true. I mean, Kolomoisky is from Dnipropetrovsk but he wanted to get the team (Budivelnyk) in Kiev - he said he didn't want the team in Dnipro, only Kiev. There are a bunch of oligarchs in Dnipro as well, but I doubt it gets a team.

Kolesnik, owner of Donbas...he's from Donetsk and has the team there, but lives in Kiev

so yeah, the money comes from the oligarch groups in other cities, but in the end they wind up in the capital, and it's the next logical place to blow some cash on a team
