Vladimir Putin has claimed that his life is comparable to that of a galley slave. But according to Boris Nemtsov, a former deputy prime minister and opposition politician, the Russian president is incredibly wealthy.
A report published by Nemtsov last month details various luxuries enjoyed by the oligarch, including an enormous fleet of 58 aircraft.
Following the report, we have rounded up the best private planes, helicopters, and jumbo jets Putin is accused of enjoying.
Photos are of models of aircraft supposedly owned by Putin, not the actual aircraft.
These are no ordinary aircraft.
The Nemtsov report claims Putin flies around in a highly customized Ilyushin Il-96.
Changes made for the president include a toilet that cost $75,000.
The Airbus ACJ319 is for traveling with small groups.
Airbus' new private jet offers seating for 19 passengers. The conventional layout includes lounge areas, club seating, and two private rooms.
Nemtsov says Putin's version is designed with leather, marble, and hand-woven carpets.
Putin supposedly has eight Tu-154s.
The report estimates their value at between $7.5 million and $20 million, depending on their age.
