New pictures claimed to show pole-dancing room inside Putin’s alleged ‘£1billion Black Sea palace’

Alexei Navalny‘s team has released a picture they claim shows a pole-dancing room inside Vladimir Putin‘s alleged £1 billion Black Sea palace.

The room had previously been pictured in computer images based on leaked detailed plans of the property, released by the jailed opposition leader. 

But now Navalny’s team claim to have found thousands of actual photographs of the palace confirming a ‘striptease’ room known as a ‘hookah’ with a stage and performer’s pole.

‘The striptease hall, hookah, call it what you want, really exists,’ says a commentary with a video about the pictures. ‘And it looks much worse than we could imagine.’

A computer generated image showing how the Navalny team had imagined the pole-dancing boudoir was released a year ago, based on leaked plans which also included a casino and ‘aqua disco’. 

The photograph now shows what they claim is the striptease room in reality inside the palace when it was still under construction.

‘The stage is littered with pillows,’ said the commentary.

A pulsating light appears above and behind where a dancer would perform.

‘We don’t even know how to describe it. A portal? A silhouette of a temple dome?’

Other images show Putin’s alleged bedroom, a second bedroom and his office, and as well as a swimming pool, they claim.

The double-headed eagle symbol of Russia is found throughout the palace, appearing to give it an official seal.

Amid controversy over the palace stoked by Putin enemy Navalny, a year ago oligarch Arkady Rotenberg denied it belonged to the president and said he owned the sprawling clifftop property overlooking the Black Sea.

Billionaire Rotenberg is Putin’s former judo sparring partner and perhaps closest friend from childhood.

At the time the tycoon explained: ‘This is a stunning place. We would like to build an apart-hotel there, this is why it has so many rooms.’

He told the media without going into detail that he had managed to ‘become a beneficiary’ of the well-guarded property.

The high security palace reportedly includes a ’16-storey underground complex’ compared with the lair of a James Bond villain.

It was also described as ‘a whole anthill in the rock under the house’.

An engineer-turned-whistleblower who reportedly worked on the construction – named only as Viktor – thought of the palace as a ‘national treasure’ 

He suggested the underground passageways buried in the rock were more ingenious than Dr No’s bunker.

The palace designs included on the eighth subterranean floor ‘a balcony – literally a loggia hanging over the sea’ built into the cliff, from which the owner can enjoy wine tasting from the palace stocks, he said.

It is, however, far from clear that Putin has ever lived in the palace and a year ago it appeared to be undergoing a reconstruction.

The Kremlin has denied that it is the president’s private home.

Lawyer, anti-corruption campaigner and protest leader Navalny – seen as Putin’s enemy number one – is in jail but is seen in the West as a political prisoner.
