I'm not sure that Russia is a communist country anymore. In fact, I seem to remember that many of the shady oligarchs made their money from the privatisation of utilities.
It's not, and that's my point: It was, or claimed that it was, but the system became corrupted through the back door in exactly the manner that you have described. So even, so called communism isn't what it once was.
I doubt also, if Xi Jinping is short of a bob or two, even if some of his supporters are dying on their knees in paddy fields.
