@offshoress “Access to the Sea” has already written about the family inheritance of one of the closest associates of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Vladimir Ni, who got rich on the privatisation of assets that previously belonged to the Communist Party of Kazakhstan.
In the last text, we talked about the French possessions of his wife Vera Ten, daughters of Rita, Victoria and her husband Nurmukhamed Dzhunusbekov. Then we discovered a vineyard and a winery in the southeast of France, three apartments in Paris, an apartment in the Swiss canton of Zug and a hotel in Fontainebleau, at the entrance to the famous residence of the kings of France.
The real estate we discovered in France and Switzerland can be estimated at about € 15 million.
But the findings did not end there. We cross the English Channel and find ourselves in London, in the Knightsbridge area already familiar to the readers of our channel.
The 11-storey complex The Knightsbridge Apartments for 200 luxury apartments was completed in 2006. Many apartments in it belong to foreign owners — there is the apartment of the family of the leader of the Adal party Serik Sultangaliyev and two adjacent apartments of Camilla Kim, the middle daughter of businessman Vladimir Kim.
Sisters Victoria and Rita Nee bought four apartments in the “apartment on the knight’s bridge”.
Three apartments on one floor
There are only 16 apartments on the seventh floor of the complex. Of these, three belong to Victoria Ni, according to extracts from the British inventory.
The first apartment was purchased in June 2013. How much it cost is unknown: the amount of the transaction is not shown in the documents, the property is only estimated at “more than 1 million pounds.”
Following, with an interval of more than three years, Victoria Ni bought an apartment for £ 18.5 million.
And finally, the last deal was made a little over a year ago, on March 5, 2020. This apartment cost Victoria Ni £ 7.4 million.
Apartments for £ 7.4 million and with an unknown price are clearly adjacent: their serial numbers follow one after another.
Facing the Sea does not have floor plans for The Knightsbridge Apartments , but judging by the prices, Victoria None owns a two-bedroom apartment of about 170 m² and a three- or four-bedroom apartment that is at least twice as large. Since the price of the third apartment is unknown, its parameters can only be guessed at.
And the fourth — to my sister
In December 2016, Rita’s younger sister Nee got her own apartment in The Knightsbridge Apartments . By that time, Victoria had just bought the second, most expensive apartment.
Rita lives on the third, less prestigious floor of this complex. The price of the apartment is also relatively modest — £ 4.15 million.
In total, the Ni family spent at least £ 31 million on real estate in central London — more than three times the value of real estate we discovered earlier in France and Switzerland.
In total, the relatives of the late Vladimir Ni spent at least € 50 million on assets that we have so far managed to find.
