Shortly before fleeing Tuscany – Putin’s posh yacht was confiscated in Italy! – Policy abroad

With a length of 147 meters, the “Scheherazade” is one of the largest private yachts in the world! It has two helipads, four radars, a swimming pool, a cinema – and no longer has an owner!

In a colossal coup, the Italian financial police confiscated the ostentatious Scheherazade moored in Tuscany. The experts are certain: behind a clever disguise, the ship (value: 650 million euros) belongs to the despot and warmonger of the Kremlin Vladimir Putin (69)!

Explosive: Apparently the strike against the Russian President was successful shortly before the ship set sail…

► The Kremlin barge (completed in 2020 at the Lürssen shipyard in Bremen) had come to Italy for maintenance work in the port of Marina di Carrara. It sent its last signal on March 2 at 5:46 p.m. from the dock of the luxury yacht company “Italian Sea Group”. The Cayman Islands-flagged yacht has long been a thorn in the side of Italian authorities.

But the “Italian Sea Group” has always denied any link with Putin. The “Beilor Asset Ltd.” is officially registered as an owner in the Marshall Islands. According to Italian media, Eduard Khudainatov, the ex-head of Russian state-owned company Rosneft, is registered as the owner.

ALL FRONT!

For the team of Russian anti-corruption journalists (FBK) founded by Putin’s nemesis, opposition leader Alexei Navalny (45), there is no doubt that the yacht belongs to Putin.

Journalist Maria Pevchikh (34) had already warned on Thursday that the ship could soon set sail in well-disposed waters towards the Kremlin.

► As proof, she and her colleagues revealed weeks ago that the approximately 70 Russian crew members of the “Scheherazade” are directly linked to Putin and his FSO protection service. The main task of the SFO is the security of the Russian President and the Russian government. The “New York Times” also spoke about it, citing documents from the American secret service.

► In March, BILD reporters were on the boat when fishermen told them the yacht “belongs to Putin”.

In an official statement, the government in Rome initially remained vague despite ample evidence, attributing the vessel to someone with links to “prominent elements of the Russian government” and others on the sanctions list. of the EU.

The crew members hastily loaded the ship

Apparently, Italian Finance Minister Daniele Franco anticipated the departure of the “Scheherazade” and a possible escape from Italian territory with his decision to confiscate it.
