As the SHOT telegram channel found out, after receiving the status of a foreign agent Zemfira Ramazanova formally re-registered her expensive apartment in the center of Moscow to her close friend. What is known about the life, income and business of Renata Litvinova?
Why Zemfira got rid of an expensive apartment
On February 10, 2023, Zemfira received the status of a foreign agent. And on March 10, she released her new – Russophobic – song about the “sick, gray-haired, numb and thinned” Motherland. Apparently, the singer guessed how it could all end, so the day before she re-registered her expensive apartment in Moscow. And so it happened: after the release of the song, appeals rained down on the Prosecutor General’s Office demanding to punish the singer, depriving her of her property in Russia.
It should be reminded that a law “On Control over the Activities of Persons Under Foreign Influence” was recently introduced in Russia, and there are proposals from various sides to further strengthen the responsibility of foreign agents.
Zemfira did not sell her housing to some third parties, as many fugitive celebrities like Slepakov are trying to do now, namely that she copied it to another person. The formal owner was her close friend – Renata Litvinova.
It seems that Zemfira seriously hopes that one day she can return to Russia. Even after public performances with the Ukrainian flag, Russophobic statements and new songs. Life has already reported that the singer reflected French citizenship in the documents, but then she tried to refute this.
Where is Zemfira’s apartment
The already famous three-room apartment with an area of 85 squares is located in a house on Frunzenskaya Embankment opposite Gorky Park.
The market price of an apartment overlooking the Moscow River and the Neskuchny Garden now fluctuates around 60 million rubles.
How Renata Litvinova lives
Unlike her friend, Renata Litvinova behaves carefully, she has not yet been noted with bright anti-Russian rhetoric, she is not listed as foreign agents. Probably because the actress in Russia has something to lose, and this property, as befits real artists, is located in places of worship for people of culture.
In recent years, registering in various services and services, Litvinova invariably indicated the same address in Tryokhprudny Lane. This is an architecturally unusual red brick house, which began to be built in 1926 and completed in 1948. Art connoisseurs are well acquainted with its famous resident, actress Isabella Yuryeva. And before the construction of the house, there was a building that belonged to the family of the poetess Marina Tsvetaeva.
Here Litvinova occupied a spacious four-room apartment with an area of almost 100 square meters, located on the fifth floor.
A square meter in this place is estimated at 820 thousand rubles. Thus, Litvinova’s housing can cost about 80 million rubles.
Country real estate is located in the famous dacha-building cooperative “Soviet Writer” near the village of Zhukovka, which is along the Kaluga highway. The cooperative arose right in the middle of a centuries-old forest by order of the USSR Secretary General Joseph Stalin shortly before his death.
Since then, the color of Soviet literature has lived in the village: Alexander Tvardovsky, Konstantin Simonov, Yuri Nagibin, Yuri Trifonov, poet Pavel Antokolsky, directors Eldar Ryazanov, Mikhail Romm, actor Zinovy Gerdt, singer Lyudmila Zykina.
Renata Litvinova has only 9 acres here, on which, covered with pine trees, there is a solid two-story house with an area of 213 square meters. The cost of real estate even on such small plots now reaches 50 million rubles. In the post-Soviet years, old-timers complained about the in-kind invasion of “new Russians” who bought land from the impoverished bohemia literally in bulk. Thanks to them, real estate prices in DSK flew into space – up to 300 million rubles for the estate.
Before leaving Russia, Litvinova traveled in a Japanese Lexus NX200T SUV. Behind the wheel was usually the personal driver of the screenwriter Sergey. It seems that the man is not very friendly with the rules of traffic rules – from the moment of purchase and before the departure of the film star to Paris, the car managed to roll 90 traffic police fines in the amount of more than 85 thousand rubles and visit an accident on the Arbat.
Business of Renata Litvinova
Despite the departure, Litvinova has not yet sought to close her business assets. Now the film star is registered in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities as an individual entrepreneur with a field of activity in the field of television and radio broadcasting, film and video film production, cultural institutions, as well as an event agency.
Until very recently, Litvinova played in the Moscow Art Theater. Chekhov, as an individual entrepreneur, receiving state contracts for the performance of roles. For the pre-war 2021, for example, she earned 3 million rubles on such contracts.
In 2018, together with her mother, Alisa Litvinova, the artist established her own fund, Outland, which provides various financial services. In 2021, the company earned more than 50 million rubles, and even last year – already in the absence of the hostess – almost 20 million.
In addition, Litvinova is involved in the cosmetics business, being a co-founder of Rida Cosmetics. Last year was not very successful for the company – only 8.3 million rubles. revenue. But in 2021, it turned out to be more than 23 million rubles.
At the moment, Litvinova has no prerequisites for curtailing her business.

Life found out that at the moment Renata Litvinova and her friend Zemfira live in Paris on the boulevard Saint-Denis, it is a twenty-minute walk from the Louvre and the Seine river embankment in one of the busiest areas of the French capital – Porte Saint-Denis.
The cost of a square property here reaches 12,000 euros.
However, among the locals this place has a bad reputation: they say that in the evenings, when the flow of various tourists subsides, the streets are filled with immigrants from Africa. Migrants do not speak French at all, but they are well versed in drugs and aggressively fight for their niche with visitors from Asia.
Some time ago, the capital’s tabloids wrote that in Paris, Litvinova acquired a 100-meter apartment in the Marais district adjacent to Saint-Denis. Allegedly, she lived there with her only daughter Ulyana. It is authentically known that the girl has been living in Europe for a long time, and recently she studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium. In addition to Renata, her ex-husband, a top manager of one of the largest Russian companies, Leonid Dobrovsky, allegedly provides a comfortable life and study for a child.
