World Leaders don’t get paid as much money as you would probably think. President Obama only gets $400,000 a year. I say ‘only’, but you know what I mean. Russian President Vladimir Putin, on the other hand, only pulls in £56,000 but is reportedly the richest man in the world.
Putin is no stranger to controversy and claims of partaking in illegal scheming. And now the New York Post claims that he could be the richest man in the world, after stealing from Russia’s economy.
Bill Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, estimates Putin’s net worth is $200 BILLION. He said:
The amount of money that hasn’t been spent on schools and roads and hospitals and so on, all that money is in property, Swiss bank accounts, shares, hedge funds.
I’m pretty sure he can’t get away with that. But it’s Putin. He gets away with everything.
