Posted by Info on 15/02/2011

Vladimir Putin has had a lavish £600 million Italianate palace built for himself near a Black Sea resort with the proceeds of “corruption, bribery and theft”, a Russian businessman has alleged.

The claim, made in a letter to Dmitry Medvedev, Russia’s president was an authenticated copy of the original contract for the palace signed in 2005 by Vladimir Kozhin, the Russian presidential property manager. Mr Putin was president at the time. Putin’s, has likened the structure to a palace built for Russia’s Tsars outside St Petersburg. Putin had personally approved the design and materials.

“Corrupt officials building themselves personal palaces at a time when children are dying due to lack of funds for medicines is Russia’s shame.”
