Vladimir Putin: Craziest Life Facts to Know

Some Analysts Say He’s Worth Billions

Okay, this is bordering on conspiracy theories but there is a large number of people, including some very esteemed analysts, that consider Putin to be one of the world’s richest men, right next to, or even above the world’s wealthiest billionaires like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

Low estimates begin at $40 billion and there are even some experts that believe the Russian President is worth around $200 billion. Now, it’s important to how you look at this, because frankly, if you think Putin just has billions upon billions of dollars in some shady secret bank accounts around the world, as many people seem to think, I have to tell you it seems quite ridiculous.

Sure, as the President of Russia, a country with tremendous resources and power, Putin probably has control over assets worth maybe trillions of dollars, but that doesn’t mean it’s his own personal wealth. For a man who holds so much power, I hardly believe personal wealth is of any interest to him as he can simply get or do anything he wishes instantly.
