Putin’s yacht

According to one of the crewmembers, Putin’s yacht was purchased by the Russian taxpayer. There was a report that one of the reasons to why the Russian military budget was shortchanged was that some of the money was siphoned to purchase a yacht. Whether this is the case with Putin’s yacht or not, it provides an insight on the priorities of their leaders as well as on the nature of Russian corruption.

From Fox News:

Photos showing the inside of Vladimir Putin’s yacht currently moored in Italy reveal a lifestyle of luxury and grandeur behind the autocratic Russian president, as his country faces severe international economic sanctions due to the ongoing war with Ukraine.

The yacht includes excessive features ranging from a gold toilet paper holder in a marble bathroom, and a tile dance floor surrounded by water that can shift below floor level to become a pool. For the full set of photos, visit The Sun.

“Every surface is marble or gold. There are countless swimming pools, a spa, a sauna, a theater, ballrooms, a gym, two helipads. It’s like a mini city,” one of the builders of the yacht told The Sun.

Other features on the six-deck, 459-foot yacht include a self-leveling pool table, a 16-foot aquarium, a Jacuzzi, a dining room, a judo gym, two helicopter pads, six jet skis and more, according to the outlet.

Fox News and The US Sun has details and the photos.

We got this beat, and under budget,

One of those was Red Green. The story of the amphibious car is on YouTube.


Love red green show. I’m not sure if it’s on a more. In my area, it is not.

Phuk Putin and any boat he rode on. The world had been warned about this tyrant for decades.

Looking forward to celebrating the cancellation of his birthday.


See, we need no mask when proper social distances. I had cough earlier today and don’t want to accidentally kill you with bad American bio weapon made too cheaply in China.


So Putin is basically a real-life James Bond villain.

All he needs now is an eye patch and a cat to sit in his lap.


Did you expect anything else? It’s sorta required– Kim Jong Il purposely did that, now all of ’em have-to.

His son is somewhat more serious about it, though.

The rest of them take the modern SPECTRE appearances as a cue.

Yes, it’s possible. But how much faith and trust can you put into the story and the sources?

Here’s the story and how they connected the dots to Putin with english subtitles (3.5 million views since 3/21/2022):

I can see it now on Bravo: Below Deck Putin’s Yacht

Watch twenty-something crew members talk about hooking up with each other and how skeevy Putin’s old oligarch buddies are.

I am in the wrong business.

If that turns out to be true I won’t be even a bit surprised, corruption runs deep in Government over there, it has since the days of the Tsars all throughout the days of the USSR to this day.


Not defending Putin, but I’m sure the corruption runs deep here as well.

We’re all screwed, I mean, serfs.


Yep, you’re right Odie. That is one of the things that the despots in our grubermint admire about Commies. And the whole rules for thee thing. Some of the deplorables here may have heard about or even seen one of SoDamn Insane’s Blue Bird Wanderlodges that he hid out during Gulf War 1. BiL of mine built those units in the plant at Fort Valley and used to make several Iraqi Grubermint paid trips a year to do the routine service on them.

My bet is that many a career politician looks at ex-USSR and third world despots with envy of their grip on power.


Democrats with the Chicoms.


Many even openly admit it. Rep Ted Lieu (D-CA) said, “I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech,” Lieu said. “The First Amendment prevents me from doing so and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment.”

If it wasn’t for that bedeviling Constitution, he could rule you with the iron fist!

Wasn’t he the socialist dem who got running guns while trying to kill the 2nd Amendment?


Rules for thee, not for them.


This thing is reportedly moored pierside in Marina di Carrara on the Italian Mediterranean coast between Genoa and Pisa.

Seize it, strip it of everything of value (including gold toilet paper holders, engines, radios, radars, etc.), and turn all of the loot over to Ukraine.

Then tow the empty hull out into international waters in the Mediterranean and let a Navy Carrier Strike Group or Marine Expeditionary Unit use it for target practice and sink it.

Record video of the entire attack/sinking and then post it to YouTube with the caption “Whaddya think about THAT, Vlad?”.


The Marine solution. If ya can’t salute it, paint it. If ya can’t paint it blow it up.

Works for me.

I always like the US Army Combat Engineer solution. If it moves, salute it and if it doesn’t move, you load it up with C4 and blow it to confetti!


Russia has been deeply corrupt going back before Peter The Great. He tried to put an end to it, but failed.

Putin is at the top of the corruption heap in Russia. I would not be the least bit surprised if Putin’s yacht was paid for by the ministry of defense. I would be interested in learning who actually paid for his palace near Sochi. I seriously doubt we have heard the truth on that.

Army logistics was beset with corruption in the AFG, and nothing has changed. The Army bought a boat load of cheap Chinese tires and many of pieces of abandoned equipment show tire failures. Add in poor maintenance and training, and you get the kind of mess one sees in Ukraine now.

Just saw this article on Drudge:


One of the Russian soldiers “blamed the commander of the group, Col. Yury Medvedev, for the deaths of his friends,” Tsymbaliuk wrote on Facebook.
“Having waited for the right moment, during battle, he ran over the commander with a tank as he stood next to him, injuring both his legs. Now Col. Medvedev is in a hospital in Belarus, waiting for monetary compensation for combat wounds received during the ‘special military operation to protect the Donbass.’ Colonel Medvedev was awarded the Order of Courage,” he wrote.
“There are no more threats to [Medvedev’s] life. I hope that he will soon be back on his feet,” he said, before adding that “such moments on the battlefield bring us together.”

That’s some funny shit there.


Looks like maybe I’ve figured out how to link other articles.

I know, a 1st grader can do it. Glad I can’t see the eye rolls or hear the snickers.


I’d assume, at that price, there would be a bidet.


Compensate much? That thing’s nearly the length of an Arleigh Burke DDG.


If you’re curious, 2 years ago, the cost was rated lower. How much lower? well, less than 300 million, guess inflation has hit pretty hard with a 100% cost increase in 2 years. Must be gov’t accountants. Article is from 1 yr ago, when the ship was completed 2 yrs ago.


Boats have shot through the roof. Covid fallout. I bought two; a sailboat and a cabin cruiser, right before covid and they are both worth double what I paid for them.


Are they armed?


Limpets. Just sayin’.
