Musk overtook Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in the race to be the richest man in the world. His net worth is $270 billion as of Saturday, March 26, 2022, according to Forbes.

Putin’s “huge wealth”

It’s not really clear how much the Russian Stark is worth.

It is reported that Putin earns an annual salary of $140,000. His publicly known net worth includes an 800-square-foot apartment, a trailer, and three cars.

However, experts believe that he could be the richest man in the world.

He is rumored to own a 190,000 square foot mansion that sits on a cliff overlooking the Black Sea. The property is reputed to be the largest private residence in Russia and serves as his personal palace, dubbed Putin’s Cottage.

Its value is estimated at $1.4 billion.

Moscow denies that Putin owns the palace, saying it belongs to a wealthy oligarch. But analysts say it’s a lie and say that no businessman can guard such property from the FSB (Russia’s Security Service) with a ban on flying over it.

Insane wealth

The report also says he owns 19 other homes and 700 cars, including 58 planes and helicopters, as well as a $718 million plane codenamed “The Flying Kremlin,” which has a toilet made of gold.

He also has a $100 million megayacht made by a Russian Navy nuclear submarine maker.

The famous Panama Papers say a network of secret offshore deals and loans worth $2 billion in 2016 pointed to him.

Putin denies the allegations and says he is richer in various ways. He says he is not only the richest man in Europe but in the entire world. According to him, he collects emotions and says that he is wealthy because the people of Russia have twice entrusted him with leadership.

Musk says whether Putin is the richest man or not, “we can’t let Putin take over Ukraine.” It’s crazy, he says.
