Member of Council of Federation from the Samara region Sergey Mamedov sold his 89-foot flat in Estonia. “This [sale] with nothing connected. To own it you can continue, but I decided to sell,” he said in a conversation with .

Favorite countries

The greatest popularity among public servants are Bulgaria, Spain and Switzerland. In the declarations of Russian politicians in Bulgaria are eight properties with a total area of 642 sq. m — from senators Igor Chernyshenko and Evgeny Alekseev, deputies Mikhail Berulava, Sergei vostrezova, Dmitry Gudkov and Sergei Kuzin, the Minister of labour Maxim Topilin. When you do this, Vostretsov last year told me that put both their apartments in Bulgaria for sale, as “very much wants to stay in the Crimea”, but complained that the apartments in that region now do not buy.

First of all it investments, said the source in the lower house.

Still a popular destination for such investments, is property in Spain. Here are the apartments of deputies Alexander Bryksin, Arkady Ponomarev and family Vladimir Potsyapun, house wives of United Russia Nikolai Valuev, the family of the Deputy Andrei Makarov owns a piece of land with an area of 1.5 thousand square meters and part of the house with an area of 159 sq. m. the Part of the house belongs to the wife of the Minister of education Dmitry Livanov, the house has an area of 927 sq. m. there is the wife of Senator Ahmed Palankov, the house has an area of 313 sq m belongs to the wife of the Deputy Omahana umahanova.

The total gross area of Russian politicians in Switzerland — 1.5 thousand sq. m. the country specified in the Declaration of Vice-Premier Olga Golodets, deputies Valery Hartung and Boris Zubitsky, Senator Andrew Klishas.

The U.S. real estate Deputy Petrov, the wife of Dmitry Peskov grooves and Senator Vyacheslav Fetisov covers an area of 27.8 thousand square meters. It is more than the total area of the property of members of the government and parliamentarians in some other countries. The reason for that is the impressive extent of land Senator Vyacheslav Fetisov. In a country where lived the famous hockey player when I was playing in the NHL, he has land area of 20 thousand square meters, apartment area is 220 sq m and 1,200-foot residential building.

The law does not prohibit senators own property abroad, said Fetisov . “It [the estate] does not prevent me from engaging in political activity and to protect the rights of their country, — said the Senator. — My daughter was born in America, friends in this country, 14 years of life there has passed”. Fetisov recalled that declares the property since its purchase.

In Italy there is a land from the family of Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin — 8224 sq m and a house area of 818 sq. m, Minister for the North Caucasus Lev Kuznetsov, and Deputy Michael Slipenchuk.

Abroad not only to possess financial resources, stocks and bonds, reminds the political scientist and member of the Supreme Council of “United Russia” Dmitry Orlov. However “United Russia” has made the availability of foreign assets, including real estate, one of the filters to participate in intraparty primaries, he recalls, so the MPs estate will become anachronisms. He noted that the property, which the deputies have mostly been acquired before the imposition of sanctions. People who have foreign assets will gradually be washed away, but this process will not be explosive, he said.
