    A wedding for $2 million

    Elena Khakhaleva, a local judge (head of the district court) in Krasnodar, a big city in Southern Russia

    is the talk of the Russian-speaking blogosphere, after recently throwing her daughter Sophia a $2 million party for her wedding


    20,000,000 rubles (about $340,000) was spent on flowers alone.

    Galich Hall, the biggest, plushiest local banquet/concert venue, was rented out for the occasion


    Russian pop star Vera Brezhneva entertained the guests


    Other celebrities also appeared and mingled with the crowd, such as the famous singer Valeriy Meladze


    Keep in mind, because of widespread internet piracy, which makes it hard to make legitimate earnings from selling one's music and such; for most Russian celebs, aside from concerts for singers and roles for actors; private party appearances are their second, and for some - main source of income. They charge very, very handily for them. The bigger and more famous you are, the more you charge. And Meladze, for example, is very big indeed.

    Something else also, this particular judge is hated by many people in Krasnodar region, especially around Sochi, because, before the Olympics in 2014, she was the one who, responsible for that area back then, signed off on eviction orders that saw families thrown out by force from their homes, to make way for Olympic venues


    And, like most Russian judges, she is corrupt as hell.

    There are also crooked cops and judges in the West, I know, shit happens everywhere.

    But, at least here, they have to hide it, live in fear of consequences.

    In Russia, there pretty much are NO consequences anymore, as long as you share with your superiors and don't cross anyone more powerful than you. You can openly FLAUNT your ill gotten wealth like this...

    V.S.

    Some local judge in Russia. Not even some federal level justice, just a provincial district judge. Drops $2 mil for daughter's wedding.

    That's fucking insane...
