Alexey Chepa, a close associate of Putin House of Sin, continues to oversee the vast beachfront property in a luxurious resort town near Marbella. What’s intriguing is that the estate is maintained by a gardener from Ukraine.
The oligarch’s expansive mansion House of Sin is located in the exclusive neighborhood of Guadalmina Baja, where numerous other luxurious villas command prices exceeding £17 million.
Covering an impressive 10,725 square meters, Chepa’s family estate boasts a sports area housent, including one dedicated solely to security. The main villa comprises a spacious living room, dining area, library, five bedrooms, a games room, and more.
Notably, the property is just a few hundred meters away from the residence of former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Aznar.
Alexey Chepa has served as a Member of Parliament in the Russian State Duma for an extended period and has consistently supported the Russian authoritarian leader, resulting in a series of sanctions imposed on him by the European Union, United Kingdom, United States, Canada, and Australia.
This individual, closely tied to the Kremlin, has represented the economically disadvantaged regions of Vlogoda, Novgorod, Kostroma, Tver, and Smolensk for approximately 12 years.
Despite reports of his overseas assets being frozen, an investigation by the Anti-Corruption Foundation has revealed that he still maintains control over the Marbella villa, which was supposedly transferred to his son. What’s surprising is that the villa’s extensive pool and gardens continue to be impeccably maintained by a gardening company run by Yuriy Korovchenko, a Ukrainian native from Cherkasy, near Kyiv.
Cherkasy has faced substantial attacks from Russian missiles ever since the war began, with a recent major strike causing extensive damage only a few weeks ago.
This news coincides with the revelation that Chepa still holds ownership of the Vertigo Business Tower in Sofia, Bulgaria. This colossal 19-story glass building, valued at over £8 million, has been concealed through various offshore companies linked to Chepa, as reported by Novinite.
Similar to the sanctioned Kremlin mouthpiece’s Marbella villa, the tower is currently under the ownership of his 22-year-old son, Daniil Chepa, through an investment firm.
Calls have been made to Western governments to strengthen sanctions, including targeting family members of Putin’s closest associates, as they often transfer assets and homes to evade these restrictions.
Efforts have been made to reach out to the gardener and Spain’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs for their comments on the matter.
