86
Unexpected newsconcerning the family of Russian billionaire Vladimir Potanin, published by the agency RIA News. As it turned out, Vladimir Potanin sent a notice to the border service that he, like his father, disagreed with his younger son Vasily (15 years) leaving the territory of Russia.

Potanin Sr. Banned Potanin Jr. to Study in the USA


Vasily Potanin himself learned that such a father's ban exists when he decided to go to New York from Vnukovo Airport to continue his studies in the so-called Friends academy.

From a letter to RIA News Former spouse of Vladimir Potanin Natalia:

Vasiliy planned to travel to the USA to continue his studies at the Friends Academy in New York, which a year ago his father personally chose for son. In Russia, Vasily was released by the administration of the Academy to pass the GIA (State final attestation) at a Moscow school.


Vladimir Potanin motivates his decision by the fact that under the current conditions, the education of his child abroad is irrelevant.

For reference: Vladimir Potanin is one of the richest citizens of Russia. His fortune is estimated at about 12,4 billion dollars.

      Simple commercialism is the basis of this action, just the father is afraid that the US authorities may put pressure on him through his son.

            How these fucking businessmen "made" money only a fool will not guess.
            It is necessary (and the time has come, in my opinion) to pinch eggs ... to all, without exception, that they voluntarily return to the budget of Russia the greater part of their capital. You can find application in hundreds of projects for the development of industry and agriculture.

Now Potanin does not want to repeat the fate of Hodor or Yevtushenko! But he still cannot become "WHITE" and "PUSHY", then last year he transferred 50% of his assets to charity funds!

          And Patanin announced the transfer of assets to funds several years ago. Then he declared that he bequeathed all his assets to the state, and not to his own children.

                  That is, the basis for such judgments do you consider the knowledge of Potanin's biography and how he earned his billions?
                  Of course, I think any oligarch in our country, and in the whole world, can be imprisoned for tax evasion, I personally think this is an axiom that does not require proof. But some oligarchs "repay debts" by some of their actions: charity, construction of facilities necessary for the state, financing of projects necessary for the state, or, like Abramovich, retained and transferred to the state one of the largest companies in its industry - Sibneft. Again, it is clear that this business is very delicate and slippery (he received money for the sale, but he also financed a lot of things). So shta .......

            I do not want to try to unsubscribe from the phone in detail. The bottom line is that once a person reaches a certain level of wealth, getting rich further is a perversion not only of himself but also of his descendants and they have a whole group of billionaires who bequeathe their children the necessary minimum money and other things, and it is considered that the greatest wealth that parents can give their children is education and knowledge that no one can take away. In general, I more than agree with them, especially if you look at those boys and horses in the major chasing and bulling.

          Potanin spoke about this 4 years ago.
          "Four years ago, a businessman said that he would not leave the property to the heirs, but would transfer it to charitable purposes. According to the businessman, big capital can demotivate the heirs, so he will leave them only a part of the fortune."

                  Sometimes the truth is bitter and it is often easier to generalize than to try to consider an alternative point of view. Of course, it's easier to issue a slogan - mercantilism and a reinsurer, but to try and ask about his statements at least five years ago is certainly not kosher right? Finding the bad in a person is much easier and more pleasant for many, because you can blame your failures on someone else or by saying to raise your self-esteem. Right? And to admit the idea that a person "hit", for example, into Scientology and now he looks at the world differently - this is unacceptable right?

        [quote] The importance of information about the return of Sergey Lavrov's daughter to Russia is difficult to overestimate.

        Unfortunately, and this is no secret, the "Westernism" of many representatives of the Russian politicians is determined by the presence of property abroad. This is a very compelling motivation. But even more convincing are the children. They study in the West, get used to it, acquire connections, become "Western people" - and by their fate, if necessary, it is very easy to blackmail their parents. In this connection, any positive mention of the same Sergei Viktorovich lost 99% of his weight when the opponent sarcastically reminded of his daughter.

        And now: it’s not a child anymore, an adult young lady who has taken root in the United States, has begun to pursue a successful career, has her own circle of friends and, in general, has divorced herself from Russian realities, by the decision of her father broke everything, including plans for the future, and returned to To Moscow. With all that, - not a child, after all! - could well refuse. And this says, at a minimum, the strength of the foundations in the Lavrov family, where the father’s word means a lot and patriotism, if you have to choose, is not an empty word.

        But most importantly, this is clear and unconditional proof of the fact that, - we will not be naive, assuming that Mr. Fedorov voices his personal opinion - not only Sergey Viktorovich, but the whole elite of Russia up to and even more abruptly made a decision, and the elites of a lower rank (according to the list, according to the list!) are ordered to determine in plain text.

        In my opinion, in the present gloomy time this message is probably the sunniest ...

          she studied there since the 90s. This is normal when the children of employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs study abroad.

          Well, you understand, the 90s ... Russia. Then there were no prospects, what Putin did was a feat.

          The main thing here is that she returned. And that the "elites" finally realized that there was no reverse move. The country has been waiting for this moment for too long.

      Everything is fine.
      To whom patriotism does not reach through conscience, it will reach through the wallet. The well-being of the oligarch depends on the strength of his country. Without her, he is nobody and there is no way to call him. Fortunately, the Yankees are constantly showing this with concrete examples (the latter is Firtash).

    Potanin is in a state of divorce from his wife. Sons (two of them) took the position of mother! Daughter father position. He dismissed his eldest from the company, generally refuses to communicate with the younger. The daughter also works in his company.

    As far as I understand, the highlighting of the phrase "his father personally chose" means that the wife was outraged by her husband's act and snitched in the media?
    And why do the billionaire’s wives have such uncomplicated fools? :) She herself is an appendage to her husband, and ambition ...
    Firstly, a person of such a financial scale in the conditions of modern confrontation will surely be a hostage, thanks to his son in New York.
    And secondly, dad Potanin, probably all lucidly explained to his insane half. And the son forbade to leave.
    It can’t be that without saying anything to any women, a woman - and a ban on leaving ...
    Hence the conclusion - what kind of mother, and such a son grew up.
    Dad snapped his son - yes, he grew up.
    Interestingly, Potanin inserted the wife of the wick for such revelations with the press?
    I would have pushed out of the house, a ticket to New York in the mouth - live.

    Among the rich, there are at least small, but patriots. Although, maybe they are just afraid ...

    It is difficult to judge, especially if it is connected with family relationships.

    The people, you generally read comments and the press ????
    Potanin and his wife are suing over the division of property and divorce. Potanin does not want to give her anything at all. Sons took the side of the mother. The senior worked at his company in the States, he fired him and withdrew his work visa. With the younger does not communicate at all. THEY are for him ENEMIES !!! If someone even squeezes them for something in the states, you yourself understand, it will not care !!!
    His wife is far from a chicken and not a fool. Together they graduated from MGIMO, and she is the daughter of difficult parents, whose trusts he used to use in full!
    THIS IS PURE FAMILY DISASSEMBLY !!!

    Hurray to patriot Potanin! Vivat !! Many years!!! Damn, it's disgusting to look at these "patriots" ... First, rob the Motherland, and then confess your love for it! For such "patriots" to love and have - the same thing.

    Potanin Sr. Banned Potanin Jr. to Study in the USA

    He simply wrote home teachers from the USA. So family business training undergrowth will be much cheaper laughing

    Well, why the heck is writing here, my son will have no place to go because I don’t have money, he will receive education at home and will go to the army as a stick. They will send him to a hot spot and they’ll probably kill or injure him, and the son of a Patanin and a remnant of people who don’t know son and son of a patanin should know all this is your homeland son

    "Vladimir Potanin motivates his decision by the fact that in the current conditions, the education of his child abroad is irrelevant."

    It has never been true, divorce and only ...
    Interestingly, the younger Potanin shares the actions of his father? It really will be a good marker of altered reality))

    Science and education have no boundaries! There is no greater test for the love of the motherland, how to live in a foreign country ... The history of Russia is rich in examples of outstanding patriots who have been educated abroad. The choice should be made by the son, this is his life, not his father ...

    So I do not mind, in principle, that the children of the elite, the oligarchs (actually those who have the opportunity) studied in the USA, Britain, France ...... I am against the fact that almost all of them remain there in the West instead of to spend the received potential with us, for the good of Russia ........ Am I right?

    I would send it better to the cadet corps. A country would appreciate such an act.

    Drink, you guys can't please. Children of officials study abroad - you feel bad. They are taken to Russia - again it is bad. You will decide. Stop talking about normal behavior out of envy. The minds themselves did not succeed in becoming "polo-noin", so they will impose shit. An excellent act of a father who loves his family, whatever the motivation. That's the whole conversation. Don't count money in other people's pockets.

      Where did we envy and debunk the Potanin’s decision about the future fate of his son? I personally put forward a constructive proposal. Your advice on measuring the thickness of the shovel in a particular case is absolutely inappropriate, just like focusing on mental abilities. That's the whole conversation.

    I don't know how to whom, but Potanin is not disgusting to me, at least because he is a relative of Luzhkov, and Luzhkov is impressed by the fact that at one time, unlike the Yeltsinoids and other pro-Western riffraffs, he never forgot about the interests of Russia - suffice it to recall the attempts to fight for Crimea and Sevastopol and Zelenograd, like a Silicon Valley. Yes, of course, the rules of the game in the era of "vile drunkenness" could not give him many chances, but he still took them, in contrast to the environment. And I hope that Potanin's act is not for the public, but a completely deliberate choice of the heart.

    Here is another man from among the richest who decided that his child should not go to the USA to study. Potanin did not disclose the reasons for his decision regarding his son, but I consider his actions to be right, unlike some of our officials who continue to educate their children over the hill and even know the decisions of some of the children to remain in permanent residence abroad. These are the pies we have today, with a wound filling and taste.

    Anyway, YOUNG MAN !!! Our education is better than the Western one! There is more PR than knowledge, otherwise, why would they chase after our graduates of the same Plekhanka, or MIPT, or ..... Their education should be secondary in order to get acquainted with the mentality! (so to speak, the "enemy" must be known by sight)

    It’s true that he’s going to donate a fortune to charity. At least he himself stated this in an interview

    The decision of the founder of Interros, Vladimir Potanin, to join the global initiative of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett's Giving Pledge ("The Oath of Giving") caused mixed reviews and comments in Russia. Still: an entrepreneur makes a public commitment to donate a significant part of his multi-billion dollar fortune to charity. With all the obviousness of the declared step, the company still has questions about the form of its implementation. For clarifications, “Itogi” turned to the General Director of the Vladimir Potanin Charity Fund Larisa Zelkova.
    “I wonder what the Giving Pledge recruits swear to - blood or checkbook?”
    - One must understand that the oath is largely a formality, a ritual. This initiative is already three years old, and at the moment 105 people have joined it. The first were Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, who called on compatriots, American philanthropists, to promise themselves, their families, and the whole world that at least half of their fortune would not be given to heirs, but donated to charity.
    - Is there a threshold from which you can join the movement? If you don’t have a “yard”, went to ..., pass by?
    - There is no property qualification. And age restrictions too, among the sworn people from 28 to 97 years old. Another thing is that to join any club, the consent of the rest of its members is required. Potanin was among the first twelve stateless philanthropists to receive personal invitations to join the Giving Pledge. In addition to Vladimir Olegovich, the list includes several Britons, including Sir Richard Branson, Lord David Sainsbury, Ukrainian Victor Pinchuk, Australians, South Africans, German, Thai, Indian ...

    “Vladimir Potanin motivates his decision by the fact that in the current conditions, the education of his child abroad is irrelevant.

    For reference: Vladimir Potanin is one of the richest citizens of Russia. His fortune is estimated at about $ 12,4 billion. "...

    Well, an example worthy of imitation, regardless of the reasons that caused the father of a millionaire to act ... God forbid, other parents will do the same, otherwise Russia will receive agents of the fifth column instead of these children ...
