London ‘Kleptocracy Tour’ features oligarchs’ mansions (with video)

How do the wealthiest citizens of post-Soviet countries keep their money safe? For some, it's simple: just buy a palatial home in London.

To show the public how it's done, anti-corruption campaigners took journalists on a "Kleptocracy Tour" of London, showing them residences owned by foreign oligarchs.

One of the properties featured on the tour belongs to Dmytro Firtash. We wrote about his fight against extradition from Austria to the United States here.

The next Kleptocracy Tour is scheduled for April 12. More information is available here or by email here.
