    Just a small dacha for $1.000.000.000. Does it make the most expensive house ever?

    Very few reasons not to be fan of this KGB baddie! Rules like he owns it all, walks like he doesn't care a thing & screws them big time who have problem with it.


    If we are talking about country mansion, I guess this one is at par with that of one gifted by Lakshmi Mittal to his Son & the one of some European I don't remember now....

    Czardom never died.

    Stalin, the supposed "communist", lived more lavishly than Putin could ever fathom.

    You are right.

    "Che reacted with hostility to what he saw in the Soviet Union. On one visit, invited to dinner in the apartment of a government official, he ate his meal on the finest imported French porcelain. During the dinner he turned to his host and sarcastically quipped: "So the proletariat (lower class/workers etc) here eats off French porcelain, eh?" (Symbol of Struggle, p52)

    That reminds me of the first Soviet visit to Cuba in 1960. I believe it was Anastas Mikoyan who was sent there to foster Soviet-Cuban relations. Mikoyan and his aides arrived in Cuba dressed in the finest Western suits, and brought plenty of vodka, caviar, and premium cigarettes.

    Fidel Castro initially reacted happily to all the pleasantries and show of luxury, but at the end of the exchange he asked the Soviets "How old is your Revolution?". The Soviets reminded Castro of the year 1917. Castro then responded, "So in 40 years, we too will be capitalists?"

    There's a Chinese saying, word for word "if the water is too clean, fish can't survive", or to the effect "Fish would starve to death in PURE water". I believe u understand this metaphor.

    Didn't we think of "saints" or "proletariat" or "revoluntionaries" as puritans? Or were we a bit disappointed when knowing George Washington was a slave owner? Or Deng Xiaoping had a "dedicated supply" of "tailor-made" premium cigerettes or liquor (white wine) when most Chinese barely fed themselves? Or did Hitler or Chiang Kai-shek deserve more respect since they led a rigid and simple life?

    Now what is orthodox Cuba like today? When Che or Castro raised their eyebrows for the "pleasantries" or "luxuries" did they foresee their "ideology" would finally lose popularity among "Proletariats"?

    Let the poor KGB boy live in luxury will you? That man was a KGB colonel in East Germany and was head of FSB (KGB with new name) for several years - he is badass isn't he :troll:

    Really? Stalin certainly ordered the killing of more people but he did not have a house constructed for him amounting to $1B (in today's money)...
