London –APA. From a small fleet of luxury yachts to mansions and chateaux scattered among the world’s most exclusive resorts, the opulent lifestyle of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich has been laid bare. In a 134-page ruling at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, Mr Justice Christopher Clarke gave an intriguing glimpse into the lives of the super-rich, revealing a wealth of detail - from the Chelsea owner’s labyrinthine business holdings to his intercontinental property portfolio and even the number of days he spent in the UK last year: 57. The judgment came in the latest of a series of cases in English courts that have explored the opaque dealings of the billionaire Russian oligarchs who divide their time between London, Moscow and continental Europe. To underpin the detailed legal argument the judge delved into the tycoon’s private life, listing a host of multimillion-pound properties, yachts and planes to demonstrate the global nature of his business empire. Clarke said that seven years ago Abramovich had owned "a chateau in France, some real estate in England and, elsewhere, a yacht, a plane and a helicopter". Fast-forward to 2008 and his empire has expanded, according to the ruling delivered last week. "[His assets are now] worth hundreds of millions of dollars, with properties acquired and renovated in the UK, France, Sardinia, the US and St Barts in the Caribbean, and Chelsea FC,” he said.
