Putin's "crackdown" seems to have missed a few people:

According to which CIA outlet? Time? Newsweek? The Washington Post?

You need to develop some skepticism about sources intimately linked to the US 1%.

Try looking at the situation via some other point of view, for a change. Most people on this planet find US news laughable. It's why Trump's recent speech at the UN Gen Assembly produced derisive laughter and jeers. Trump is himself a product of the US matrix -- even though he lpresents himself as an outsider. In a way he truly is a Washington outsider -- but not from the viewpoint of most of the world.

The international reputation of the US press is not why Trump was laughed & jeered off the stage at the UN.. that makes no damn sense at all. What meds are you on again?

As to the original question: How did Putin become the richest man in the world? And your response is he isn't! He lives in a 2000' flat just off Red Square, and doesn't even own a car!



Seriously? You're that deluded?

I guess you are.. sad little sock puppet.

It's not even believable that Putin is the richest man in the world. How does anybody think this? I don't care anything about Putin, it's just a silly notion. Seems like one would have to be pretty gullible to believe it to be true.

Is Vladimir Putin Secretly the Richest Man in the World?

The most often cited estimate comes from a former mid-level Kremlin adviser named Stanislav Belkovsky. In 2007, he claimed Putin had a fortune worth at least $40 billion—a figure that would put him in the top 10 of Forbes magazine’s ranking of billionaires.

Putin may secretly be one of the world's richest men

Vlad is a thief, a thug, a murderer and an all-around scumbag.

The amount of propaganda that people will believe these days seems limitless. I guess I don't have Putin-phobia over Clinton losing her corrupt campaign and then mobilizing the media to demonize someone, anyone but herself.

I said it before, I'll say it again: the idea that Putin is the richest man in the world is simply not believable. If you believe this silly lie, more power to you. You should consider why you're being lied to with such outrageous lies, and why you believe them.

This in spite of the fact that I just provided evidence to support such an idea.

I guess I forgot: Facts and evidence hold no importance in TrumpWorld.

Putin's net worth has been credibly estimated by sources ranging from Kremlin insiders to investment bankers and financiers as somewhere between $40-$200 billion. So whether he's "the" richest guy in the world or not...at that level it really doesn't matter. He's an oligarch, ruling an oligarchy of other oligarchs, and Rump is his shoeshine boy. Obviously these pinheads have no idea whether he is or isn't, but they somehow think it helps their case if they can portray it all as nonsense.

Last year, Hermitage Capital Management CEO Bill Browder told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he believes the Russian president is "the richest man in the world" with a net worth of $200 billion. Browder has some bona fides to back up his Russia connections; the financier's firm was once the largest portfolio investor in Russia.

I don’t get why it’s not believable. There’s no hard evidence to back it up, but it wouldn’t be impossible for the dictator of Russia to amass more personal wealth than anyone else.
