VLADIMIR Putin has spent billions of Russian rubles renovating his £100million mega yacht with luxury additions including a gold bathtub.
Exclusive pictures show the £100million ship Graceful undergoing expensive repairs in a Russian port.
Putin began renovating the floating villa, now renamed Kosatka, when his other yacht was detained in Italy.
Photos taken in Yantar in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad show construction work on the megayacht’s exterior.
A brochure for the modernization shows plans for a tasteless gold bathroom with a gold freestanding bathtub in the middle.
The dictator, whose forces bomb women and children in Ukraine, spared no expense on the renovation, which includes a gold-lined master suite, crystal chandeliers, plush carpets and expensive artwork.
Putin’s official salary is just £107,000 a year, but he is believed to have amassed a £200 billion fortune in palaces, private jets, etc.
The Kosatka, which translates to “killer whale,” was previously at a shipyard in Germany, but was taken out of the country to Russia shortly before Putin’s orderto invade Ukraine.
The yacht then sailed to Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea between Poland and Lithuania, where our pictures were taken.
She is now believed to be in St Petersburg, while his other yacht, the £750million Scheherazade, remains at a marina in Tuscany after being detained by Italian authorities.
