Expensive and angry: Roman Abramovich became the world champion in spending money
For the entire time of the pandemic, the Russian oligarch did nothing to help Russia, but he bought for $ 120 million the famous picture of Munch "The Scream".
The incredible feats of Abramovich in the field of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic were commented by Novosibirsk writer Sergei Besedin in his blog:
“You know, I can not stand the noise, fuss, violence and all sorts of things like that. “The cry of a man is especially hateful to me, be it the cry of suffering, rage or some other cry”.
So said the Master at Bulgakov. Today, Roman Abramovich could have repeated it. Of all the screams, he only likes the drawn "The Scream" by Edward Munch, which he bought today at an auction for $ 120 million. This automatically made the purchase the most expensive painting in the world. All the other cries of mankind do not bother him - he is so fine.
In the midst of the pandemic, Abramovich is engaged in some very sophisticated, shameless, public consumption: first, the most expensive villa in Israel, for $ 65 million, then the most expensive painting. Of course, he also provided charitable help to doctors. In Britain, not in Russia; at the moment when his silence began to look quite defiant. He provided doctors with free accommodation at his Millenium Chelsea hotel for two months, realizing that the hotel was idle anyway, and such an advertising occasion would not be soon. For a broad gesture, Abramovich chose the most modest of his hotels, which tourists describe as "a small, miserable U-shaped building with a nasty breakfast that has long been in need of repair". It is necessary, at least so, cheaply and angrily, to strengthen his reputation in a country that already once refused him permanent residence due to dirty money.
In Russia, where he earned the bulk of his capital, nothing can be strengthened. He didn’t give a damn about us..."
