    A hel of a lot of them are queued up at their borders trying to get out. Border countries should be careful how many they take in lest Vlad claims to be liberating tham a well.

    Apparently many of these nations are refusing admission of russians - fearful they've been infiltrated by Vlad's spies.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    Of course they have, saboteurs and pro-Vlad activists as well. Doesn't make it easy for the others. Not sure we can call them refugees yet, it was only when a they percieved a personal threat they moved.

    You got that right. Lots of oligarchs and prominent Russians checking out recently:

    In case anyone didn't read to the end, the article goes past this recent death, and catalogues the others.

    It's a bit of a catch all really, there has been a deal of warning, and some time for them to consider leaving for say, ideological' reasons, before a very personal threat put the frighteners on them. Some will be, but many not. I'd be intertested in the demographic of those fleeing.
