  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How rich is Russia’s President Vladimir Putin? | Counting the Cost” – below is their description.

    When Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny was arrested while returning to Russia last month, crowds came out to protest against the Russian leadership. If the protests were anything to go by, many Russians have been disillusioned and angered by President Vladimir Putin and the economic gloom.

    Navalny released a video that claimed a billion-dollar palace on the Black Sea was built for Putin. The Kremlin denied the allegation.

    But decades-long questions about Putin’s wealth will not go away.

    We talk to Hermitage Capital’s Bill Browder, who believes he has the answer.
