54-year-old Roman Abramovich can engage in the development of domestic tourism, and not just anywhere, but in Gelendzhik itself (the city in the south of Russia, thanks to the investigation of Alexei Navalny about “Putin’s palace”, was recently learned all over the world). The Kommersant newspaper reports on Abramovich’s plans. Journalists refer to the data of the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, where they found two new legal entities registered by Abramovich.
We are talking about the companies “UK” Yug Estate “and” UK “Nord Estate”, whose main activity is real estate management. In addition to Gelendzhik, Abramovich was also interested in Karelia, where, as reported, he had already acquired a plot of land on the shores of Lake Ladoga. It is planned to build a recreation center there, as well as a house for Abramovich’s personal needs.
Sources of “Kommersant” said that the oligarch is interested in creating a luxury hotel complex with a vineyard in Gelendzhik. Allegedly, Abramovich was also eyeing the Chateau de Talu company, which is controlled by the wife of the former Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, Alexander Tkachev. The cost of the asset is estimated by experts at 200-500 million rubles.
Recall that earlier Gelendzhik was actively discussed in the press in connection with the film by Alexei Navalny, in which he talked about “Putin’s palace” – a grandiose structure with a large plot of land, which is supposedly being built for the Russian president. Putin himself rejected the rumors about his palace. Arkady Rotenberg eventually called himself the owner of the property.
Well, the name of Abramovich himself was mentioned not so long ago in connection with another major deal on the real estate market. According to Israeli media reports, the businessman last year purchased the most expensive villa in the country, located in the resort town of Herzliya near Tel Aviv. Abramovich’s fortune in 2020 was estimated at $ 11.3 billion.
