Putin: "I do not have the wealth they are talking about, and no Cyprus accounts either"
The Russian president spoke to the film director Oliver Stone about the possessions attributed to him.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied the allegations that he has bank accounts in Cyprus. He stated this in an interview in a new film by American filmmaker Oliver Stone on Showtime.
"No, I don’t and never have. This is all nonsense. If this were the case, it would have been exposed a long time ago," TASS quoted him.
Stone said that some people in the West consider Putin the richest person in the world. "First of all, I do not have the wealth they are talking about," Putin replied.
When Stone admitted that he himself would have been happier with great wealth, Putin said: "You know, I do not think this is a great happiness. You would have been thinking now, in the crisis, what to do with all those assets. How to keep them, where to place them. All you get from this is a headache. "
"There are no pockets in the coffin, you can not take it with you," he added.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
Several years ago, owner of two dozen companies and media sources Elada Nagornaya was called the richest wife of an official. Now her husband Oleg Sorokin is in a pre-trial detention center, and she has successfully left for Europe with other family members.
