Russian billionaires are knows for their extravagance, opulence and reckless spending. The nouveau riche of capitalist Russia are showing the old timers that money can actually be fun, and a lot fun than they could have imagined during the cold war days. One such extravagant billionaire is Roman Abramovich. He spent an astounding $52,000 for a lunch, while most poor Russians still have a meal of baked potatoes and roots.
The bill came up to $42,221.09 after munching on filet mignon, white truffles and washing them down with expensive wine. There were ten people on the table and a tip of $5000 was added to pay a tidy bill of $52,221.09! Abramovich is the world’s 51st richest man and has a net worth of $8.5 billion. We had recently written about how he went ahead and equipped his yacht with an anti-paparazzi shield. And that is not good for those in our business.
