    Default Russian magnate provides funds for new FILA headquarters

    The guy that sponsors Russian wrestling, Suleiman Kerimov (2nd richest man in Russia), provided 300K Franks to purchase a castle with modern technology, a conference room, several rooms for guests, a wrestling room and a fitness center where FILA will have its new headquarters in Switzerland.

    I guess Russia owns FILA now.

    How many bottles of vodka is 300K Franks?

    300.000 Swiss Franc = 240.000 USD. Not enough to purchase a castle! Big didn't understand the purpose of the money. It is not to purchase the castle (fila purchased it a year ago), but to cover fila's expenses for the inauguration ceremony (+ party) of the new headquarter that will be today, to cover travel costs and accomodation of more than 100 "prominent guests" etc.

    Well, some of the funds will go towards buying equipment for the headquarters. I didn't say Kerimov bought the castle. I just said he provided funds for it.

    I said "provided funds to purchase a castle" OI course he wasn't the only one that provided funds. I know it was a vague explanation and I am sorry if I confused anyone.
