Journalist find $15,6m-mansion of Medvedev’s security chief
The house is located in a village near Moscow.
Novaya Gazeta and the OCCRP found a mansion in the elite village of the Moscow region - Razdory, located on the Rublyovo-Uspensky highway, belonging to the general of the Federal Security Service, Mikhail Mikheev, who heads security of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Authors of the investigation refer to two sources, noting that Mikheev’s real estate is not registered in the State Register. It is only indicated that the wife of the General Natalya Mikheeva owns a hectare of land in Razdory. On this land plot, there is a mansion with an area of almost 1500 square meters, which cost is unknown. Yet Novaya Gazeta found out that a similar-sized house in Razdory with a smaller land plot is put on sale for 1.27 billion rubles.
The journalists decided to conduct an experiment and sent a letter to Razdory addressed to the General. People at the gates of the village, where the mansion is located, received correspondence for the name of Mikheev and signed it.
It is also known that Natalya Mikheeva received a hectare of land in Razdory by exchanging it for another plot in Rublevka, which she bought in 2011 from Gorki-2 Agrocomplex.
Earlier, Novaya Gazeta reported that guards of Vladimir Putin received land plots on Rublevka for symbolic sums through the Agrocomplex.
The house that Trump built. Russian billionaire nearly lost millions in a deal with future US President
Billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev managed to get back the money paid to Donald Trump. In 2008, the oligarch purchased an estate from the future US President for $95 million and recouped the invested funds only ten years later. To do so, he had to demolish the most expensive private mansion in the USA and sell the land in pieces. The successful sale of Maison de L'Amitie is currently presented as a proof that there was no ‘Russian trace' in the American presidential elections, and the deal with Rybolovlev was not a disguised bribe to the presidential candidate. However, new owners of the three parcels of the Trump's former estate remain unknown.
