Russian oligarchs join Mariah Carey and Justin Timberlake on board 'The Flying Titanic'

Russian top politicians, party leaders and ex-President Boris Yeltsin will be spending the New Year holidays in the Moscow region. Yeltsin will traditionally see the New Year at his residence with family and friends. Boris Yeltsin has already become a great-grandfather: his third great-grandson was born in the autumn of 2006. Yeltsin’s New Year table will traditionally be filled with all delicacies of the Russian cuisine.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin (articles) will see the New Year in at his Moscow region residence too. As usual, Putin invited only his relatives and close friends. Putin’s wife, Lyudmila Putin, and his daughters, Katya and Maria, traditionally decorate the Christmas tree. Rumor has it that the Putins will travel to Russia’s south for short holidays, although some people say that Putin will return to his office already on January 2.

The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov is not going to leave Moscow for the holidays. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the chairman for the Liberal and Democratic Party has similar plans.

USSR’s first and only President, Mikhail Gorbachev (articles), is going to travel to Germany. His daughter, her husband and their two children are going to accompany Gorbachev in the trip. Afterwards, the Gorbachevs will go to Switzerland.

Russian oligarchs plan to repeat last year’s festivities. In the very beginning of 2006 they joined an Arab sheikh on board his luxurious plane. They traveled to the Antarctic in a company of US singer Tina Turner. For 2007 they are to board the “Flying Titanic” too to enjoy a pool, a game of bowling and super first class dinner in a plane restaurant. Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Justin Timberlake will be entertaining the VIPs during the flight. The powers-that-be will land in Iceland where they will be comfortably accommodated in a castle of ice surrounded by the scenery from The Lord of the Rings movie. The luxury plane will be carrying 160 passengers in total. The cheapest ticket for only three days costs 125,000 euros. The most expensive one is evaluated at 700,000 euros.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
