As we all know, the richest man in the world is Elon Musk. But in a recent interview, Musk did not place himself at number one. He considers Russian President Vladimir Putin to be richer than he is.
Last year, Musk topped the list of richest people in the world, surpassing Amazon boss Jeff Bezos.
How do you feel about being the richest person in the world with a net worth of 260 billion? ‘
“I think Putin is richer than I am,” Musk said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s vast fortunes remain a mystery, as no one knows exactly how much or where it is. From time to time various secrets are heard about his property.
Putin is linked to the 1.4 billion Black Sea palace and the 4 million Mona apartment. Some have speculated that Putin may have amassed more than 200 billion in assets. But no one has been able to say for sure.
As president, he is claimed to have an annual salary of 140,000 dollars. His assets, which have been made public, include an 800-square-foot apartment, a trailer and three cars.
But according to some experts, Putin has a lot of invisible assets that have not been discovered. Putin is rumored to be the owner of a 190,000-square-foot Black Sea palace. The coastal property is reputed to be the largest private residence in the country, which is said to be Putin’s private palace.
But the Kremlin has denied that Putin owns the palace, saying it belonged to a wealthy businessman. But Russian analysts are calling it a big lie.
In addition to the 58 planes and helicopters, Putin is said to have 19 houses and 700 cars, including a 716 million plane called The Flying Kremlin, whose toilet is said to be made of gold.
He is also said to have a 100 million megawatt designed by the Russian Navy’s nuclear submarine manufacturer.
Elon Musk may have put Putin in a richer position because of these rumors and secrets.
But Putin has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Putin’s position have been made more than once.
“I am the richest man in the world, not just in Europe. I collect emotions. I am rich that the people of Russia have twice given me the leadership of a great nation like Russia. I believe this is the biggest asset, “he said.
