Meet The World Richest President And His filthy Rich Lifestyle: 4 Yachts, 58 Aircraft, 20 Homes And A $75,000 Toilet

Here's the Russian President Vladimir V. Putin who is rumored to be among the world's wealthiest men, with a fortune worth tens of billions, which he of-course denies. Born in a middle class Soviet family, Putin who also once compared ruling Russia to being a 'galley slave' reportedly lives a 'king-size' lifestyle with access to Presidential perks including four grand yachts, 20 homes with opulent fittings, 58 aircrafts with one Russian-made Ilyushin Presidential jet with a $75,000 toilet, not to forget Putin's ultra-expensive watch collection worth $700,000.

"I have worked like a galley slave throughout these eight years, morning till night," said President Putin to media in 2008. However, the $2.5 billion a year lifestyle unraveled in the report titled 'The Life of Galley Slave' by the opposition parties says otherwise.

This alleged Russian President has a total of 20 palatial residences, including the recent mysterious $950 million outlandish Italianate palace located on the Black Sea coast. Other palaces include Constantine Palace, a Czarist-era estate on the Gulf of Finland, a ski lodge in the Caucasus Mountains, and a Gothic revival palace in the Moscow region, to name a few.

And, President Putin's fleet of 58 aircrafts include 15 helicopters, along with 43 other aircrafts, including two Dassault Falcon executive jets, an Airbus, and an Ilyushin Il-96 airliner that features an $18-million cabin fitted out by jewelers from the monastery town of Sergiyev Posad, and a $75,000 toilet.
And, the President's road commuting is handled by a fleet of some 700 ultra-luxurious vehicles, including some of the world's most expensive cars.

Further, out of the four luxury yachts, one was a 'gift' from an affluent Russian billionaire, and the other 53.7-metre yacht comes with a designer interior, a spa pool, wine cellar and waterfall.

Notably, all of the photographs and figures in the much-talked about report comes from the public sources. However, this report doesn't mentions that many of the properties it lists as presidential residencies also serve money-making functions, when the President is not staying there.

Interestingly, the Russian public opinion has mixed views about this official corruption.

Russian President's official salary has been listed as $115,000, which is almost six times the worth of his watch collection of $700,000, which includes some of the world's most expensive watches.
