It’s amazing what you can do with your money if you scrimp, save and cut every corner you can.
According to a recent report on Euro News, Russian President Vladimir Putin earned about US$144,000 in 2018 and that was actually down from what he earned in 2017.
However, Putin showed the world what you can do if you really put your mind to it.
Russian opposition leader, Alexi Navalyn, alleges that Putin has a little vacation cottage on the Black Sea estimated to be worth well in excess of $1 billion. Navalny recently released a video talking about Russia’s “New Versailles.”
And for the record, there have been at least one assassination attempt on Navalyn’s life since. READ: Poisoned Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny detained upon arrival in Moscow AND Russian intelligence hit squad poisoned opposition leader Alexey Navalny: Report
Some are suggesting because of his incredible ability to make every penny count, Putin may “unofficially” be one of the richest men in the world.
Of course, the Russia government vehemently denies these allegations. But there is an old saying when it comes to Communist politics, “Don’t believe anything, until it’s been officially denied.”
