The U.S. considers the president of Russia Vladimir Putin’s corrupt and that they know about “many, many years,” said the official of the american ministry of Finance in interview to the british network BBC. The Kremlin has flatly rejected these claims, noting that amount at the level of the “formal category”.
The Russian president brings together the secrets of wealth, said Adam Σζούμπιν, in an interview with BBC Panorama.
“We’ve seen him make rich friends, the closest of allies and marginalises those who he considers friends, using state resources. Whether it’s the energy wealth of Russia, either for other government contracts, directs those who he thinks will serve him and exclude others who do not. For me, this is a picture of corruption,” said Σζούμπιν, according to the BBC.
The Σζούμπιν declined to comment, adds the british network, on report of 2007 of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the united states, in which the wealth of Putin is estimated to amount to approximately $ 40 billion, but noted that the stated wealth of the Russian leader is underrated.
“It supposedly has state payoffs (corresponding) somewhere around $ 110,000 a year,” noted the Σζούμπιν. “This is not an accurate statement of the estate of this man and he has a long training and practice with regard to how to hide the real wealth”.
How much money is Putin?
In accordance with what is known from the property of statements, Putin is a man of a moderate income. In April, Putin declared for the 2014 income 7,65 million roubles (approximately 119.000 usd). Also said two medium-sized apartments, and a share in a garage car parking.
The US has imposed sanctions on a number of Russian businessmen loyal to Putin, in the framework of their policy to exert pressure on Russia for its role in Ukraine.
In March 2014, the ministry of Finance of the USA has linked Putin with profits from one of the entrepreneurs to whom sanctions were imposed, Gennady Τιμτσένκο, one of years known of Putin and then co-owner of Gunvor, which trades nearly 3% of the world’s oil. “The activities of the Τιμτσένκο in the energy sector were associated directly with Putin.

The Kremlin rejected as “sheer libel” the charges of corruption made against Putin and caused Washington to give “tangible evidence”. “This is a formal category,” said the representative of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov to reporters in a conference call.
The bilateral relations are now in such a situation that a lie such as this is unlikely to worsen another,” added Peskov. “This is clearly a fabrication and defamation, without any relationship with reality.
