Russian Anti-Corruption Lawmaker Denies Owning Luxury Apartment

A Russian lawmaker, Irina Yarovaya, on Monday denied media reports that she had failed to declare ownership of a luxury property in the central Moscow.

      Yarovaya, the head of the State Duma Security and Anticorruption Committee and also a member of the ruling United Russia party, said all the allegations that she owns a $2-million apartment, which is not officially declared, are just attempts of her ill-wishers to discredit her. However, the lawmaker failed to explain the question with her property.

      Her press secretary Oleg Zhdanov earlier told the apartment belonged to Yarovaya’s underage daughter and was not subject to declaration.

      The article revealing Yarovaya's undeclared property was published by the New Times paper, which is famous for its denouncing reportages. According to the paper, the market value of the apartment can be estimated up to $2,898,000.

      Irina Yarovaya is most known as an active fighter for banning all state officials from owning foreign real estate, bank accounts or stock. Russian officials are currently allowed to own property abroad, but it must be declared.
