Rosselkhozbank chairman, who used to live next door with Putin, secretly owns real estate and yacht in Monaco
Boris Listov and Vladimir Putin used to live next door in St. Petersburg in the 1990s.
The family of Boris Listov, who headed Rosselkhozbank in June, own four apartments on Moscow’s Kremenchugskaya Street and two apartments in Monaco, as well as a company they registered for buying a yacht in Malta. The news was reported by Proekt.
One of the Moscow apartments with an area of 319 square meters is registered in the name of Listov’s alleged wife Anastasia Gorshkova, who used to be an ice skater. She also owns an apartment in Monaco and a company in Malta. The company's capital amounts to €1.5 million.
Proekt notes that the value of the Monaco apartment and the yacht equals Boris Listov’s 17 annual salaries. In 2017, he made an average of 1.4 million rubles ($20.777) a month.
According to the sources, Boris Listov has known the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, since the 1990s. They used to be neighbors in St. Petersburg. The sources also note that Listov got the post of the Rosselkhozbank head with the help of the billionaire Arkady Rotenberg, who is also considered to be a friend of Putin's.

The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post.

The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
