Vladimir Putin’s fortune: a real secret
How did these journalists come to such conclusions? It is in particular thanks to a leak of documents from the company Moskomsvyaz, a Russian IT service provider that the reporters were able to make the correspondence with all this fortune. As a reminder, in 2021, Alexei Navalny revealed that Vladimir Putin would own a huge palace on the shores of the Black Sea. The principal concerned had denied holding this property. According to the American media Forbes, “understanding how much Putin weighs is the most difficult enigma of all the hunts for riches”.
