"Germany is good for savers, London is good for spenders"

... the words of a Russian in Londongrad, in this look at the Russians-in-London phenomenon. It contains some fascinating facts and figures (did you know that 60% of London homes selling for more than $20 million are bought by Russians?). My favourite bit? Andrei Nekrasov (quoted in our headline) and his somewhat odd view of class definitions:

"A lot of them are upper middle class in Western terms," he said. "They can afford a $2 million apartment in cash."
