He says it might be “crooked realtors” hunting for his apartment.

The great-grandson of Joseph Stalin, Selim ben Saad, said he and his family are being watched and threatened with murder in an interview with Moskovsky Komsomolets. He assumes that “crooked realtors” might be behind all that, because they want to lay hands on an apartment in the heart of Moscow, which Stalin had left to his descendants.

According to ben Saad, he and his wife live in the apartment in the heart of Moscow, which Stalin had given to the wife of his son Jacob. Selim himself and his father Hosin are the owners. The cadastral value of the place with an area of ​​80 square meters in the vicinity of the Kitai-Gorod metro station is about 30 million rubles ($460.000).

“My family and I have noticed surveillance; lately particularly so. Once, we found a threatening letter in the mailbox. It said that we should leave the apartment,” said the descendant of the Soviet leader.

Selim ben Saad believes that the “crooked realtors” want to take advantage of the fact that a person with a disability owns the unique property (he is deaf), and take his apartment away. Selim's lawyer, Yulia Verbitskaya, is preparing a statement to law enforcement agencies.
