Torres fee small change for Abramovich as Chelsea owner's wealth revealed (Guardian)

The Russian authorities have allowed a rare glimpse into the sprawling wealth of Roman Abramovich with the release for the first time of details of his Russian bank accounts and a list of his luxury homes, cars and land.

The assets of the Chelsea Football Club owner ranged from a modest VW Golf to a £200m chateau in the south of France, and emerged from a declaration required for next month's state parliament election in the Far Eastern province of Chukotka, where Abramovich is standing to be a parliamentary deputy.

The details in the document, released on Wednesday by Russia's election commission, provide a snapshot of a billionaire oligarch on the rise again, after losing – according to Forbes magazine – two-thirds of his wealth in the global downturn. Abramovich is now thought to be worth more than $11bn, and is estimated to be Russia's fourth richest man.
