New Twitter handles, @RUOligarchJets and @Putinjet, have been launched, providing live updates of their private jets’ with pics of maps locating them. 

Sweeney reportedly claimed people have long been telling him to start Twitter accounts as such, and those requests ramped up after sanctions aimed at Russia’s richest.

Many of Russia’s Oligarchs are at the moment facing economic chaos at home and punishment by the West after President Vladimir Putin ordered his troops into Ukraine. The United States and its allies have reacted by sanctioning wealthy individuals close to the Kremlin.

In total, it’s reported the newly launched Twitter account has tracked over 40 planes and helicopters linked to Russian Oligarchs, and Sweeney has since invited others to help bolster the number of aircraft that can be tracked. On the other hand, Sweeny’s Twitter account tracking Musk is still alive and would only be deleted in exchange for a new Tesla Model 3.
