The British authorities will check the funds for the purchase of the apartment of Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov in London. The corresponding request came from the human rights organization Transparency International, which complained of the legality of these funds.
Experts are inclined to suspect Shuvalov of corruption, since his apartment is worth more than a million pounds sterling, which considerably exceeds official incomes of the official.
According to the requirements of the UK law, owners of property worth more than 50 thousand pounds are required to disclose the sources of origin of the funds spent.
Earlier Shuvalov at a meeting with students of the Northern Arctic Federal University said that he "has absolutely no undeclared property." At the same time, he admitted that he was really a rich man and "never was ashamed of it."
