After weeks of speculation, it's finally been revealed that Ekaterina Rybolovleva, the 22-year-old daughter of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, is the purchaser of ex-Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill's penthouse at 15 Central Park West in New York.Source: MSNBC
Forbes reports that Rybolovleva paid the full $88 million sticker price, an unusual move given the soft housing market and a major boon for Weill, who promised to donate proceeds from the sale of the Manhattan apartment to charity.
Almost nothing is known about Rybolovleva except that she's a student at a U.S. university, was born in Moscow, and has been a resident of Monaco and Switzerland for the past 15 years...
Far more interesting is the life of Ekaterina's father, who presumably bankrolled the pricey pad.
Dmitry is a business magnate who got his start in science, and he owns a French football team. Oh yeah, and he was once tossed in jail for a year after being accused of participating in a murder plot.
In this ravaged housing market, why would anyone pay the full asking price for a residence?
A cynic might think something fishy was going on here, like money laundering, especially when you add in Weill's comment about donating the ENTIRE proceeds to some charity?
And to only say that "...was once tossed in jail for a year after being accused of participating in a murder plot" is being too kind.
The plot involved murdering a business rival. You don't think he bribed his way out of jail, do you?
Damn, there's that cynicism again.
Not much may be known about the buyer Dmitry Rybolovlev, who's worth close to $10 BILLION DOLLARS, but if you actually investigate the matter, details are there, like these:
Mr. Rybolovlev's daughter will enjoy 10 massive rooms, totaling 6744-square-feet, overlooking Central Park and a 2,077-square-foot wraparound terrace.Mr. Rybolovlev likes living on the on the tax shelter island of Cyprus that he reaches by riding his $72 million dollar yacht.
There are three other bedrooms, a skylit gallery, a den with a bar and a library with a wood-burning fireplace. Closets total 17, seven of which are walk-ins.

There's plenty to find on ex-Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill, a 'Tribe' member who's also married to a 'Chosen One.'
Weill's been fleecing us GOYIM since at least 1962 and would pass on some of his 'fuzzy math' to another 'Tribe' member neck deep in the looting of America since the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11, Jamie Dimon, now CEO of JPMorgan Chase.
Weill, along with then Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, another 'Tribe' member, were the prime movers and shakers that bribed and lobbied Congress to gut completely the protections offerred to Americans investing in Wall Street, the Glass–Steagall Act. Shortly after Glass-Steagall was tossed overboard, Rubin retired from government life and got a job at Citigroup, and went on to steal, oops, maybe I should say make $126 MILLION dollars off the Wall Street MBS con games which he helped put into play by gutting the Glass-Steagall Act.
(Rubin sparked controversy in 2001 when he contacted an acquaintance at the U.S. Treasury Department and asked if the department could convince bond-rating agencies not to downgrade the corporate debt of Enron, a debtor of Citigroup.)
Sparked controversy? Don't they have such a wonderful way with words.
Glass-Steagall had been made into law during the last Federal Reserve created 'Great Depression,' to keep banking and insurance businesses separate so the international bankster gangster crowd wouldn't go on a plundering spree that would wind up destroying our economy, stealing trillions from American's 401K accounts and pension funds and making a certain group of dual-citizenship types wealthier than King Midas.

When pulling off that big a heist, it's always a good idea to have an inside man--besides the US president--so in 2001, Weill became a Class A Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
(Some say that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, then led by current Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, helped convicted felon Bernie Madoff launder his stolen loot to Israel, but that's another story. And that half of 'Bernie's' investors lost NO money. Hmm, wonder which half?
Others say Bernie has wads of money stashed offshore, shielded from any investigations or civil lawsuits.)
Weill seemed to have a nose for easy money, because in 2004, Citigroup agreed to pay $2.65 billion to settle a class-action suit brought by investors over its role in the WorldCom scandal. Citigroup's Salomon Smith Barney had issued optimistic research reports on WorldCom and, at the same time, helped it raise money by selling its securities. Employees were encouraged to buy Citigroup stock, but were discouraged from selling any due to all the restrictions put on the sale of employee owned Citigroup stock.
Weill also knows when to Get the Hell out of Dodge, retiring from Citigroup in 2006, when the stock was actually worth something.
Citi’s shares fell from a high of $55.12 in 2007 to about a dollar early last spring, and now trade at $3.31.
If you want to read a puff piece about the poor, misunderstood Weill, the New York Times has one at this link. After all, he's only worth around $1.5 BILLION, a small fish in a very crooked sea.
I know some will scream 'anti-Semitic' for saying that whenever one starts delving into the various scams, schemes, con jobs and outright thefts pulled off against Americans, there always seems to be a cabal of 'Chosen Ones' behind the looting. Even Mr. Rybolovlev, the multi-billionaire Russian oligarch, is Jewish.
And many of these brigands are present or former employees of Goldman Sachs, a financial Godzilla that has been involved in so much corruption, you could write a book on their thievery, fraud and perjury before Congress that "...produced the most destructive crime spree in our history."
So is the above being 'anti-Semitic' or just being truthful?
Whenever a gang pulls off a big heist, like say looting American's 401K accounts and their pension funds, it's always good to have a BIG distraction so they won't notice that hand in their pocket, robbing them blind.
The distraction for this latest Federal Reserve created, Wall Street managed theft was the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11.
