Romanian gypsies living luxury lifestyle
Romanian gypsies living luxury lifestyle. In Romania, not far from Bucharest there is one of the richest cities in the world – Buzesku. There are about 800 houses, each worth between 2 and 30 million dollars. This is Beverly Hills number 2 – the capital of the gypsy-millionaires. The “King” of Romanian Gypsies Florian Chioaba (his title was inherited from the father) has to 50-80 million euros per year. His Koldash clan has about 300 families, and at least half of them have houses worth 3 million euros. The total income of the “King” and his clan is close to 300-400 million euros per year. It consists of ordinary offerings to Roma “obschak” (slang for bank), and this is 5-10% of the criminal and semi-criminal income, cigarette smuggling from Romania to Western Europe, the hotel business and trade.
Similar situation is observed among the Roma of the “elite” and the other countries of Eastern and Central Europe. Even in a poor gypsy Moldova “baron” Cherar Arthur and his clan are up to 20-40 million euros per year. A clan in Kosovo “Baron” Nedzhmedina Nezir – up to 100 million euros per year (mainly foraged Kosovo Roma in Germany and Austria).
Like most of the rest of the “elite” of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, these gypsies deliberately show a lavish lifestyle, literally live in gold – on home interior decoration, including a gold toilet for Gypsy “King” of Romania Florian Chioaba, gone up to 55 kg of gold.
Gypsies millionaires of Eastern Europe – is a perfect example for libertarians. They do not pay taxes, they live in complete freedom – from prejudice marriage laws, weapons, etc.
The October issue of National Geographic magazine tells about the life of the Roma-millionaires in their capital – the Romanian city Buzesku. The town is located 80 km south-west of Bucharest has a population – 5 thousand people. In Buzesku about 800 houses has been built, each worth between 2 and 30 million dollars. In general, the cost of all this real estate millionaire Roma is estimated at $ 4 billion.
Like their counterparts on the Russian Rublyovka, Roma from Buzesku pay no taxes to the state, regardless of formally unemployed or owners of firms with a zero balance. There is, however, one exception – their houses are considered unfinished and therefore subject to a small tax on property, usually 200-300 euro per year.
One of these gypsy millionaires named Parachiv tells how he became a rich man. After the establishment of capitalism in Romania in 1989, the main fishing enterprising Roma began buying ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
As in Russia, the first thing the nouveaux riches began showing over-consumption. Expensive cars, palaces, gold. But there is one difference between Roma millionaires of the rich Russians – today they do not extort money from their country, and of the rich European countries. Gypsy-Romanian nouveaux riches amassing money in France, Italy and Spain. And these funds are invested in their homeland – in Romania. While Russian nouveaux riches, on the contrary, prefer to extort money out of Russia and put them in the palaces in London or on the Riviera.
Buzescu millionaires work shifts: 3-4 months in Western Europe, then home for a few weeks (or forced return to weddings, funerals, baptisms, family and relatives). And because most of the palaces in the town are filled with children, the elderly and women.
Another interesting thing. Most rich families remain faithful to traditional crafts. Many of them keep pigs, poultry and horses in the back yard of palaces, women sew quilts, old engaged in chasing copper utensils.
