Family of Russian National Guard Chief Owns Properties Worth $10M – Investigation

Family members of the newly appointed head of the National Guard, Viktor Zolotov, own real estate worth 663 million rubles ($9.75 million), an investigation by the Anti-Corruption Foundation revealed.

Zolotov's daughter Zhanna purchased a 500-square-meter apartment in Moscow in 2011, according to the Anti-Corruption Foundation, which is headed by opposition politician Alexei Navalny.

The cost of the apartment, located on Lomonosovsky Prospekt in southwestern Moscow, is estimated by the foundation to be worth 343 million rubles ($5 million).

In addition to that, Zolotov owns a 1,000-square-meter property worth 200 million rubles ($3 million) in Zubalovo-2 outside Moscow, a popular area for state residences during Soviet times.

The foundation also cited an investigation carried out by the Novaya Gazeta newspaper that revealed Zolotov and his son Roman owned real estate assets worth 120 million rubles ($1.7 million).

According to the investigation, published earlier this year, these assets include Zolotov's apartment in Moscow as well as an apartment and three houses belonging to his son Roman.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
