He is not Russia's richest politician

Elon Musk

The mystery of Putin's finances

Browder, who, according to Corriere della Sera, faces an arrest warrant issued by the Kremlin through Interpol, has struggled for years to unravel the mystery of Putin's finances. It all started after the death of his colleague Sergei Magnitsky, in a Russian prison, shortly after uncovering a complex plot of fraud and tax evasion in Russia.

The alleged pact with the oligarchs

Fortune reports that, according to Browder, the 200 billion dollars that would constitute Putin's fortune come from a pact made with other oligarchs, after the 2003 arrest and imprisonment of Mikhail Khodorkovsky (pictured). He was found guilty by the Moscow Court of fraud and tax evasion. Putin reportedly made this deal with some members of the Russian financial elite, to avoid "having to sit in the same dock as Khodorkovsky."

The investigation by the Navalny team

The team of Alexei Anatolievich Navalny, a political activist and one of the Russian president's best-known opponents, has also focused some of its investigations on the aim of shedding light on Vladimir Putin's alleged hidden wealth. These investigations were also echoed by CNN, in a video linking an incredible Black Sea estate to Putin and the oligarchs.

Tom Burgis' statements

In addition to the investigations by Navalny's team, the CNN video offers the opinion of several experts. Everyone agrees that it is difficult to establish what Putin's real estate is and where he is. Journalist Tom Burgis, interviewed by CNN, speaks of Putin as a kind of "godfather", on whom the Russian oligarchs depend.

Another kind of wealth

On the other hand, John C. Corbally, in his book entitled 'The Twentieth-Century World, 1914 to the Present: State of Modernity' reproduces a statement by Putin himself in 2013: "I am the wealthiest man, not just in Europe but in the whole world: I collect emotions. I am wealthy in that the people of Russia have twice entrusted me with the leadership of a great nation such as Russia. I believe that is my greatest wealth."
