Whether or not Vladimir Putin is the richest man on earth remains a subject of speculation. It’s hard to tell, but the Russian president is said to have access to a number of expensive properties, including a mansion, and a $716 million plane. He is also rumoured to have access to several dozen cars, a yacht, and more.
Besides his personal wealth, Putin is said to have control over the Russian media. He has a strong network of friends who have become very rich. Several of these friends are now famous. The Rotenberg family, for example, is the richest family in Russia. They have stakes in several companies, including the country’s largest gold producer. They also have a major stake in the country’s biggest gas company.
Putin’s alleged wealth comes from his various companies and investments. He owns a stake in a major petrochemical company, a major gas company, and a coal energy company. He also owns stakes in a fertilizer company and an iron ore and steel company. If all of these assets were combined, his net worth would be more than $70 billion, which would make him the richest man on Earth.
A senior Russian figure confirmed that Putin’s younger daughter, Katerina Tikhonova, is indeed his. She has studied Oriental studies and Japanese history at St. Petersburg University, and currently holds a senior position at Moscow State University. She is also involved in the university’s campus expansion plan.
Putin also has a number of pets. He has an Akita Inu named Yume and several dogs. He has a racing car, which he co-piloted in 2010. In 2010, Putin helped put out hundreds of wildfires in western Russia. He also co-piloted a firefighting plane in August 2010.
Putin’s alleged wealth comes from several sources, including his investments in several different companies. He owns a number of companies, including one that makes plastic bags. Earlier, he was an investor in Chinese electronics firm Xiaomi. He also owns a stake in the largest iron ore and steel company in Russia. The company is called Metalloinvest. He is also a shareholder in the Bank Rossiya. He is also a shareholder in SUEK, a coal energy company.
Putin is rumored to have a fleet of luxury yachts. His yacht, known as “The Graceful,” has six bedrooms and sleeps 14 people. The yacht was renovated in 2005. It was given to him by Roman Abramovich.
He also owns several luxury watches. A 2012 dossier alleged that Putin owned 11 watches worth $687,00. Putin has a black belt in judo and he is said to have learned martial arts to avoid being bullied. He also reportedly owns five planes. A former head of state shipping company says Putin runs his yacht with state money.
Putin and his wife Lyudmila have been married for 30 years. They lived in East Germany from 1985 to 1990. They have two daughters, Katerina and Maria. They are said to have attended university under false names. Their daughters haven’t been shown to have any personal financial gains.
