As I said before in a private e-mail (in a failed attempt to reduce noise) 
even assuming the pesants don't need out-of-country connectivity,  if the 
russian "tier-1" internet needs to talk to both the russian-only web and 
the whole internet, implementation of this "ip block theft" would be 
excessively difficult without NAT, and with NAT, it's not really IP block 
theft, as NAT will translate the IP addresses to something globaly
