Accordingly, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the allegations of assets of the Russian President were just unfounded rumors and “completely nonsense”.
“Huge real estate has nothing to do with Putin. The Kremlin does not care who owns it, “Peskov said.
“Navalny’s allegations have been repeated many times. Years ago, we also explained that Mr. Putin does not own any palaces, “Peskov added.
Earlier, news of the Putin villa was mentioned in a video released by opposition activist Navalny. Mr. Navalny called the video a “presidential investigation” and accused the villa on the property of Putin.
“The security barrier is impregnable. The area is 39 times larger than the Principality of Monaco. A private pier. A private church. A private checkpoint. There is even a no-fly zone set up in Putin’s separate kingdom. It was built in the heart of Russia “- Mr. Navalny accused.
Mr. Navalny added that the villa in the video is located in the luxury real estate south of the Black Sea and measures 17,691 square meters. The villa also has an ice skating rink, a dance floor and a vineyard.
With news related to the property of Russia’s most powerful man, Navalny’s video quickly attracted the attention of the public.
Mr. Navalny’s video quickly attracted more than 22 million views on YouTube.
Mr. Navalny will appear in court on February 2 for alleged “fraud and libel”. This politician confirmed the allegations to prevent him from running for Russian president in the future.
When he was detained before the trial, Mr. Navalny constantly updated his situation on social media.
In his first post-detention message, Mr. Navalny said he had a stable emotional and psychological state, would not kill himself in prison, and thanked his supporters.
“I have no intention of hanging from a window or cutting blood vessels with a sharp spoon. I used the stairs very carefully and they measured my blood pressure every day, so the sudden heart attack was ruled out. I have a stable psychological and emotional state ”- Mr. Navalny wrote on Instagram on 22/1.
