Premier Pu’s Palace

The Finnish-Russian Civic Forum (FINROSFORUM) promotes cooperation between the peoples of Finland and Russia by supporting civic initiatives for democracy, human rights, and free speech.




“Russian WikiLeaks” RuLeaks, established by the Russian Pirate Party, has published pictures of a luxurious Italian-style palace that is reportedly being built for the personal use of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in the village of Praskoveevka on the Black Sea shore.

Details of the palace were revealed in an open letter to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, written by Sergey Kolesnikov, a former partner in the project. In his letter, available at CorruptionFreeRussia.com, Mr Kolesnikov estimated the total cost of the palace at well over USD 1 billion.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian city paper, Gazeta po-kievski, calculated that Putin has altogether 18 residences. The only world leader with more palaces is North Korea’s Kim Jong-il. Putin’s primary residence is in Novo-Ogaryovo, 30 km from Moscow, where has has lived for over 10 years.
