The luxury apartment is on Russia’s list of nationalized assets.

The Crimean parliament has unanimously voted to nationalize the assets of Ukrainian oligarchs and politicians on the peninsula, RIA Novosti news agency reported on Wednesday, citing the State Council’s press service.

Among the assets is an apartment belonging to Elena Zelenskaya, the wife of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Crimean Governor Sergey Aksyonov announced on Telegram.

More than 130 properties have reportedly been confiscated, among them a cinema, factories, shopping malls, wineries, and banking structures.

Last February the Crimean parliament also voted to nationalize about 500 properties belonging to Ukrainian politicians and businessmen.

Zelenskaya’s three-room penthouse on the Black Sea coast near the resort city of Yalta is estimated to be worth $800,000. It was bought from a business tycoon in 2013 for just under $164,000. After Zelensky won the presidential election in April 2019, Reuters reported that the price paid for the property was at least 50% lower than the market rate.

The seizures come in response to a law introduced in Ukraine last year making it legal to confiscate the assets of Russian citizens and businesses without compensation. In August, Kiev approved confiscations of more than 900 Russian-owned properties in the country, reportedly worth $765 million.

Russia has seen its state and private assets worth billions of dollars frozen or confiscated in Western countries since the start the military operation in Ukraine. The US and its EU allies have since been looking for ways to give the assets to Ukraine for reconstruction.

The Crimean Peninsula was part of Ukraine until 2014, when it voted in a referendum to join Russia after the Maidan coup resulted in the overthrow of the democratically elected government in Kiev.

Profits from the sales of the nationalized assets, including Zelensky’s apartment, will be used to help the families of soldiers killed in the military operation in Ukraine, the speaker of the Crimean Parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov, was quoted as saying by Russia’s TASS news agency.

  1. This is just one property that the little J3w has purchased with U.S.-donated tax-dollars…
    He has another one in Miami, in the J3wi$h-part of that city.
    Nothing will happen to it, as the little Zionist Bolshevik will continue to be protected by the Deep State!

  2. Great to read that Zelensky’s ill-gotten luxury apartment in Crimea has been seized by Russia. He’s caused so much trouble, wasted so many lives, Ukranian and Russian, in his frightful collaboration against Russia with the criminal US and NATO countries in their destruction of his own country. It’s not the first time that US and NATO have destroyed countries, most recently 20 years of destroying countries based on false pretexts in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yem,en, Somalia..

    • And the Goyim Veterans and Active Soldiers pay the price.
      The average lifespan of a soldier on the front in the Donbass; 4 hours!!
      Ukrainian soldiers are now killing their senior Commanders for ordering the suicide missions. (see VT or Veterans Today’ and Hal Turner)
      Most who are shooting these psychopaths are non-J3wi$h Company Commanders, who refuse to send their troops into a suicidal lost cause. This makes it plainly evident that the senior Commanders of the Ukrainian Army are J3wi$h, just like their ‘President’.
      Their goal is to kill off as many Goyim as possible, on all sides of the conflict.
      The Wagner Group stated that so far they have lost 20,000 men…
      And check out the stats that Aleksander Solzhenytsyn documented in his writings as to who and what really ran Russia under the Soviet Union title ALL who murdered, exploited, who ran the Red Terror and the State Security Apparachik were all J******!
