May 18, 2019 21:46


Forbes magazine has made a list of the most unusual acquisitions and gifts of Russian billionaires. The participants of the list were not ranked by lines.

The list includes the Head and owner of the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant (NLMK), Vladimir Lisin, who bought the Aberuchill Castle in Scotland for $ 12 million in 2005. Before that, the castle belonged to one of the oldest local clans - Campbells.

Gennady Timchenko, a co-owner of Volga Group, has its own winery with an area of about 47 hectares near Gelendzhik in the Krasnodar Territory. The authors of the ranking refer to the experts who tell that the winery costs 120-170 million roubles.

The owner of the “Interros” holding (the main asset is Norilsk Nickel), Vladimir Potanin, bought a truffle mushroom in the New York restaurant in 2013: it was the world’s largest mushroom of this kind at that moment – its weight made up 1.8 kilograms. The businessman paid 95 thousand dollars for it.
