Foreign agent Evgenia Albats settled well in the USA, from where she voices Russophobic passages. Recently she took pity on Gogol, who allegedly suffered due to the inability to write in English. How does she live?
How Evgenia Albats lied about Gogol
Journalist Evgenia Albats, well-known in opposition circles, continues the Russophobic wave.
Historians have already laughed at Evgenia Markovna. Firstly, Alexander II became emperor only in 1855, and Gogol died three years earlier. Secondly, in his letters to his mother, Gogol, in principle, did not say anything like that.
Why was Evgenia Albats recognized as a foreign agent?
Albats’ anti-Russian position has long been known. She was the editor-in-chief of the New Times publication, blocked by Roskomnadzor, which used Western money to justify Ukrainian neo-Nazism and Islamic terrorism, and also circulated fake news about the Russian army. Albats also wrote for Novaya Gazeta, which was deprived of its license a year ago, and hosted an original program on radio Ekho Moskvy, now disconnected from broadcasting and liquidated.
— she said long before the Ukrainian events, back in 2013.
What is left for Evgenia Albats in Russia
Evgenia Markovna was born into an influential nomenklatura family. Mother spent half her life working as an announcer on All-Union Radio. My father worked first in the special services, then as a chief specialist at a research institute for missile guidance systems from submarines. My grandfather was a member of the Bund (the General Jewish Workers’ Union in Lithuania, Poland and Russia), and in 1915 he returned to our country from Switzerland to conduct subversive revolutionary activities.
Parents left Albats a three-ruble apartment with high ceilings in a Stalin building on Academician Korolev Street. Near VDNH, Botanical Garden, Ostankino Park, TV tower, TV center and monorail. The price of such real estate is about 40 million rubles.
Before leaving Russia, Evgenia Markovna lived in a spacious eleven-story brick apartment, built immediately after perestroika according to an individual project. The architecture is unusual: a mixture of Stalinist Empire style and constructivism. The location is prestigious: Lesnaya Street, Tverskoy District, just a stone’s throw from Miussky Square and the Garden Ring. Cost – up to 50 million rubles.
In 2019, Albats rented out this apartment for 130 thousand rubles a month, but not all of it, but only two of the three rooms.
Where is Evgenia Albats now?
In September 2022, Evgenia Markovna announced that she had gone to New York to teach at one of the local universities. But, as Life found out, American telephone directories contain different information. According to them, Albats now lives in the college town of Cambridge (Massachusetts) on Brattle Street. At this address there is a residential building managed by the nearby Harvard University, the alma mater of Evgenia Albats. In the nineties, she studied there for a master’s degree in politics, and in the 2000s she defended her doctorate.
It’s not cheap to live in a “Harvard” house. A month’s rent for a modest two-bedroom apartment costs about four thousand dollars. Also, judging by the American bases, Albats often stays with his daughter in New York.
Daughter of Evgenia Markovna, Olga Golovanova, has been living in the United States for a long time. Studied at Moscow Anglo-American school (recognized as a foreign agent and closed), then received an education at Brandeis University in Massachusetts and recently married American Brantley Doyle, a top manager at the Ogilvy advertising agency. She shares her mother’s views and regularly participates in anti-Russian actions. He and his husband occupy a red brick townhouse worth a million dollars in Brooklyn (an area in New York near Manhattan Avenue) on India St. Inside, there are granite countertops, premium wood cabinetry, marble bathrooms and hardwood floors.
