Russian Officials Own Property in Estonia, Despite Impending Ban

Business daily Äripäev has compiled a list of Russian officials who own property in Estonia, even though the Russian government is taking a harder line on foreign asset ownership, including a proposal to ban foreign real estate holdings altogether.

Around 500 Russian officials, including MPs, ministers and judges, own real estate abroad, with Bulgaria the favorite destination with 176 officials owning property there, while that number is 10 for Estonia, Äripäev reported on Monday.
