The real estate is worth of 114 million rubles ($1.7 million).
The Anti-Corruption Foundation headed by politician Aleksey Navalny has found that TV host Vladimir Soloviev owns another villa on Italy’s Lake Como where houses of Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, George Clooney and other celebrities are also located. This is being stated in a new investigation carried out by the Anti-Corruption Foundation. Navalny had earlier found another Soloviev’s house on this Lake worth of €9 million.
The TV host’s second villa is located 11km away from his first house - in the comune of Menaggio. The country house is spreads across 37 square meters. The area of the main house is almost 300 square meters - not taking into consideration the balconies and porches. There are 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen in the house. Moreover, there’s a guest house with an area of 90 square meters in the territory.
It can be seen from the quadcopter video that the swimming pool is being built in the territory.
Navalny says Soloviev purchased the real estate in 2013 for €1 21 million. After the swimming pool’s construction is completed, the villa’s cost is expected to be estimated at €1.5 million ($114 million), the leader of the opposition states.
Navalny’s video also states that in February, last year, Soloviev purchased a Maybach car worth of 15 million rubles ($225 thousand).
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
