From Abelskaya to Yarmoshyna: Complete list of 100 millionaires from Drazdy


Every owner of a cottage in Drazdy, an elite cottage community in the outskirts of Minsk, can consider oneself a dollar millionaire.

Even for an unassuming building there almost $1.5 million is asked. Naturally, one won’t be able to sell a cottage for such a price, it’s an illusion. But even by dropping the price to $1 million, the figure is pretty high, Nasha Niva informs.

Over the period of the recent decade, land plots for construction cottages in Drazdy, the settlement of Vesninka nearby, and behind Minsk Arena, were received by more than 100 representatives of Lukashenka’s elite.

The first cottages were built thanks to central procurement, and owners paid by credit money. Now they usually pay using their own resources. Builders evaluate the real investments in such a house as no more than $40,000 – 100,000. It means that everyone out of the one hundred of the elite of functionaries and Lukashenka’s close associates had a net profit of about $1 million.

And their common profit then is $100 million. Who are these people by name? The list below is one of the most important documents of Lukashenka’s epoch.

The gap between the elite of functionaries and common people could be also observed in mental (remember the statement by Minister of Labour Mariyana Shchotkina) and territorial aspects.

Prosecutor General Alyaksandr Kanyuk (who is on this list as well) believes that it is “unethical” for the society to know about wealth of officials. But it is a lie.

According to the Constitution, the only source of state power in Belarus is people. All ministers and prosecutors are simply temporary hired managers. But the nation had not allocated elite land plots to officials. The decisions to give land by improper means are not published on the National legal portal.

“A cottage in Drazdy” could be called in any way at all – a privilege, a perk, a bonus. But first of all it is a payment for loyal conduct. None of the one hundred persons had ever expressed public criticism of Alyaksandr Lukashenka.
