700 Luxury Cars, 58 Private Jets And 20 Mansions… All Owned By ONE Politician.
Vladimir Putin, as everyone knows, is the President of Russia. Everyone also knows that any President has plenty of things at their disposal for fun and relaxation. It comes with the job and should be expected of the most powerful man in the country. Putin however is either a very humble man or flat out liar. You’ll have to make that determination for yourself.
He filed a report that said he made around $100,000 in 2015. Yet he owns 58 aircraft, properties all over the country and other parts of the world, around 700 cars and a boat or two. There is no possible way that someone could have all of that while making only around $100,000. He is either really good at saving money or there are other factors involved. Factors that I will leave to your imagination. A former fund manager says that Putin is really worth over $200 billion and has his money stashed away all over the world. That would be a lot easier to believe when you take into consideration everything that Putin owns. Looking at his fleet of aircraft you can easily find many that are worth well over $100,000 all by themselves.
There are several reports that give his wealth at various amounts. The only thing that is absolutely certain is that he has more than plenty stashed away. Forbes won't include him on their list of billionaires mainly because they can't verify what he owns and doesn't. In reality that should be the way it is anyway. He's the President after all.
One of the most interesting things that come with this type of wealth and power is the “meal taster”. Putin actually has someone eat his food before every meal to verify that it hasn’t been poisoned. People must be dying to get that gig!
Being president comes with its privileges!
Russia's president, Vladimir Putin, filed a report that says he made around $100,000 in 2015. But reports from those around him say his worth is actually much much more than that. It would have to be to amass the collections he has.
Putin's numbers don't add up
If he made only $100,000 as he says, he wouldn't have the vast collections of properties, vehicles and planes that he currently does unless he is very good with money. He would hardly have a fraction of what he does. Maybe he's just a humble guy?

He didn't get to his position by being stupid
Putin's former fund manager, along with other reports say the President has more than $200 BILLION hidden all around the world. They are hidden in places that nobody but Putin would be able to find.

Bill Gates is jealous!
If the numbers being reported are accurate, and it certainly looks like they are, Putin is worth more than twice as much as Bill Gates is. Take that Microsoft!

President's aren't known for living in poverty
It would be rare to see a President that didn't live a lavish lifestyle. But Putin puts most of them to shame with the way he lives his life. You can't really blame him. If you have it you might as well enjoy it.
