The richest man in the world? —> Putin's billion dollar palace

Saw this segment this evening on CNN


The sprawling palace and property on the coast of the Black Sea are seen in this image from a video by Alexey Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation.


(CNN) The sprawling billion-dollar palace that sits on a hilltop overlooking the Black Sea is seen by some Kremlin critics as the ultimate emblem of Russian President Vladimir Putin's legacy of corruption.

Dubbed "Putin's Palace," the 190,000 square-foot mega-mansion was purportedly built for his personal use with funds from billionaire oligarchs, whom he allegedly allowed to flourish in Russia's notoriously corrupt economy so long as they shared the wealth -- with him.

The property has its own amphitheater, underground hockey rink and private seaport, according to a documentary produced by jailed Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny's anti-corruption group. There is a no-fly zone in the skies above and a no-boating zone in the surrounding waters.

The magnificent fortress stands in stark contrast to the tiny 800-square-foot apartment Putin claims in his official 2020 financial disclosure.

Nice house you've got there, would be a shame if a "meteorite" or "space junk" were to destroy it.

Sad thing is, Putin is probably the richest man in Russia, by a factor of several times. He and the oligarchs got rich off the Russian people, and mean while the people are poor as hell (despite all the natural and intellectual resources Russia has). In fact that's what this war is all about. It's not about NATO representing a military threat to Russia, but Putin wanting to give the poor people of Russia a distraction (i.e. Make Russia Great Again), and NATO stands in the way of that expansionist philosophy that is at the core of MRGA.
