Which of the domestic TV presenters has British citizenship and an apartment in London? Who spends most of their vacations in exotic countries and flies to visit children living in the United States? Anews offers to look at how some Russian TV presenters of federal channels live and rest abroad.
In the mass audience consciousness, these TV presenters appear as convinced patriots, to whom everything foreign is alien. The reason for this is the editorial policy of the programs and their own screen image. But the picture on TV, as you know, does not always converge with reality. Anews offers to look at how some domestic TV stars actually live.
The permanent and ageless host of the Vremya program, as the tabloids like to call Ekaterina Andreeva, is a great lover of overseas recreation. The blog on Ekaterina Sergeevna's instagram is, by and large, dedicated only to trips abroad. The presenter willingly and in detail tells subscribers about the new countries she discovered and the adventures she experienced.
For example, flying in a small plane, taking a boat trip off the coast of Spain, tasting freshly smoked trout before an opera in Salzburg, or horseback riding in the Swiss mountains.
The presenter has a special attitude, judging by the choice of entertainment, to the study of the national characteristics of countries, culture, nature and cuisine.
The host of the Good Morning program and the political talk show Vremya Pokazhet, no less than the namesake from the Vremya program, loves traveling abroad. Instagram of Ekaterina Strizhenova is replete with pictures from trips to Europe, Asia and South America, pictures surrounded by the beauty of nature and exotic food.
Recently, the host of the Saturday program "Vesti" on the TV channel "Russia 1" Sergei Brilev, whom netizens jokingly call "the president's favorite", found himself in the center of the hype with overseas real estate.
The media began to accuse the presenter of alleged British citizenship and ownership of an apartment in London in a condemning tone. Some publications even cited photographs of the house where the apartments were allegedly located and named their cost - 700 thousand pounds (about 80 million rubles at the time of purchase).
“The fact that I first had a British residence permit and then a second citizenship is a fact that is well known to my employers. When the relevant legislation appeared, I, as expected, informed the then FMS about this,”the host explained the situation with citizenship on his Facebook page.
“As for the property in London, it was acquired with funds whose sources are transparent and well known to the relevant financial and tax authorities,” the presenter continued.
Judging by the pictures on Instagram, Vladimir Solovyov, who is constantly criticized for his scandalous statements, loves two things: running and taking selfies. Both the best, as noted by subscribers, Vladimir Rudolfovich is able to do abroad. Somewhere near the sea, a serene Italian lake or skyscrapers of New York.
Subscribers in the comments now and then reproach the TV presenter for "duplicity", since they cannot correlate the two opposite models of behavior of Vladimir Rudolfovich: harsh criticism abroad in his programs and regular travel abroad. leading. Vladimir Soloviev owns a three-story mansion of pale pink color. The house is located in Italy near Lake Como.
It is here, as many followers on Instagram believe, that most of the presenter's landscape photos were taken.
The TV presenter prefers not to respond to the caustic comments of subscribers regarding his second, foreign life. True, once Vladimir Soloviev nevertheless spoke about a villa on a foreign coast - he said that he had bought it solely for the sake of saving the family budget.
“I have a big family, when I take everyone out to rest, it’s 15 people. I figured that a month in Greece would cost us such an amount of money that it would fight back in 2-3 years if you stupidly buy. When I bought, prices there were lower than in the suburbs on Rublevka. Well, our prices are specific. You calmly buy, bring your family, and she stays there all summer,”the host explained his choice.
The general director of the Rossiya Segodnya news agency and the host of the Vesti Nedeli program on the Rossiya 1 channel on the Web is often called perhaps the most odious and gesticulating TV presenter in the country. The screen image of Dmitry Konstantinovich rests on two pillars - unbending patriotism and irreconcilable hatred for practically everything abroad - as a terrible evil that carries a threat to the fatherland. Even in freedom of speech, which seems to be a basic thing necessary for the healthy existence of a civilized society, the presenter sees a threat to the Motherland.
Meanwhile, in ordinary life, the presenter does not adhere to such strict principles. For example, back in 2014, Dmitry Konstantinovich allowed himself to spend family vacations in the Netherlands, a country considered one of the most liberal towards the LGBT community.
Pictures of the host in Holland in 2014 were taken by one of the Twitter users. Social networks, by the way, were very surprised at the choice of the presenter, obviously remembering his irreconcilable position regarding people with non-traditional sexual orientation.
As for the living space, unlike Vladimir Solovyov, Dmitry Konstantinovich did not aim at the distant shores and settled in the Crimea. True, even before the annexation of the peninsula. The host built a huge villa here right on the side of the mountain.
And although the "sea dacha" of the presenter no longer belongs to foreign countries, in an interview with the Russia 1 channel, the presenter admitted that he did not plan to find himself from the benefits of the Western world.
“I’m not going to give up American gum, British cars, the Italian Ducati motorcycle I ride, and also jazz,” Dmitry Kiselev said in an interview with Russia 1 channel.
