Photos are out of new luxury private jets that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, splashed out more than £100million on.
The photos of the luxury private jets came as a shock to many, as Russia remains on the brink of an economic disaster. ExpressUk reported that photos of the planes were leaked online, showing lavish white leather chairs, gold covered trims, king size beds, kitchens and conference rooms and plush gyms, all as a part of the Russian president’s gift to himself.
The walls of each plane are decorated with valuable paintings The first plane, the IL-96-300 jet, will cost the Russian taxpayers £44,210,558, while the second, a IL-96-300-PU, will set them back £61,231,589. The leaked photos of the interiors have, however, caused outrage among Russian citizens.
According to blogger, Kungurov who first published the pictures after getting hold of them from a contact in Russia’s Ministry of Defence fumed: “Our self-proclaimed Tsar has decided to give himself a gift on his 15th anniversary of assuming the crown by whipping his slaves into paying for two luxurious IL-96 airliners for him,” he wrote as Russians reacted.
