How Varum is connected with Ukraine
In Moscow, activists demand to cancel the show of 53-year-old native of Lvov Maria (Angelika) Varum, scheduled for April 29 at Crocus City Hall. She was reminded of criticism of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.
Varum wrote her statement in Russian and Ukrainian. In her opinion, the Russians are “cannon fodder”, and Russia is “moving to hell” at all. After that, the singer abandoned her Instagram and left the country, leaving for her daughter in the USA. There, the Agutin-Varum couple, as Life found out, is full of expensive real estate.
The star has not previously supported the events in Donbass and has not visited Crimea since 2014. Varum said that a trip to the peninsula would block her way to Ukraine, where her numerous relatives live.
Unlike his wife, Leonid Agutin behaves cautiously, does not make harsh statements, does not comment on what is happening, limiting himself to the phrase that he is supposedly a patriot of his country. However, on the eve of the new year 2022, together with American guitarist Al Di Meola and Cuban singer Amory Gutierrez, he released a video with a reworked Ukrainian folk Christmas song “Shchedryk”.
Both spouses appear in the video, and Anzhelika Varum is listed in the credits as Ukrainian. Fragments of the video were later included in the one and a half hour online charity concert U FOR UKRAINE, during which funds were collected around the world in support of Ukraine.
Recently, Leonid Agutin has completely disappeared from the TV, even in the TV show “Voice”, which many can no longer imagine without a gray-haired and bearded musician, Anton Belyaev, a participant in the second season of the project, sits in his place on the jury.
How Varum and Agutin make money in Russia, what they spend money on
Perhaps now Agutin is with his family in America: the musician did not even pay for OSAGO for his luxurious 415-horsepower Lexus LX600 for 20 million rubles, bought in January of this year. And in the artist’s garage is another Lexus with unpaid insurance – LX570. Apparently, the car is being prepared for sale: its beautiful number with three eights has already migrated to a new SUV.
Nevertheless, the spouses continue to earn money in Russia. Maria Varum came to Moscow last year with club concerts. For example, at the end of September, the public filmed her performance in one of the capital’s pubs.
It is assumed that this year for Angelica Varum and Leonid Agutin will be eventful in terms of tours: only in April they have concerts in Saratov, Rostov-on-Don, Moscow and Volgograd. In March, the couple traveled to Krasnoyarsk, Barnaul, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Omsk, Yekaterinburg. In addition to Russia, the artists performed in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. On the Internet, fans call the spouses to Khabarovsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Kemerovo and St. Petersburg.
In the capital, the spouses are registered in one of the stalinoks on Savvinskaya embankment – in the prestigious Khamovniki district. Here they have three apartments at once with an area of 55, 73 and 115 “squares”, probably combined into one two-level living space.
Agutin could also be found in one of the skyscrapers in Kochnovsky passage – this is in the Moscow Airport district. Here, on the 24th floor, the musician had an apartment of 163 sq. m and a market value of 47 million rubles. This property may be for rent.

Where Agutin bought real estate in the USA
Having earned money on Russian concert venues, artists leave them, including in the United States. Their 24-year-old daughter Elizaveta Maria Varum-Agutina has been living here almost since birth. In Russia, a girl is only a guest, she is a citizen of the United States. There she is now building her musical career – she created the rock band Without Gravity (“Without attraction”). In nightclubs, the Americans know the young rocker under the pseudonym Liz Holloway.
Elizabeth in America was raised by her maternal grandfather, composer Yuri Varum, and uncle Mikhail, Angelica’s 33-year-old brother, living in the States. All of them lived in a luxurious almost 300-meter apartment in an elite residential complex on the Atlantic coast in the city of Hollywood.
The housing was purchased by Leonid Agutin back in the 2010s for what seemed to be $1 million, and earlier the Agutin-Varum couple went there on vacation “to the American dacha”. Today, real estate by American experts is estimated at least at 2.3 million dollars.
The apartment is made in a classic style with a predominance of beige tones. According to the singer himself, Anzhelika Varum was engaged in the design of the premises, but Life discovered that the housing was already being sold with repairs. On a huge area there are only two bedrooms and three bathrooms. The rest of the space is reserved for a salon with a kitchen, a living room, an office, a dressing room and a huge terrace with a picturesque view of the ocean and the river flowing into it. In the bedrooms and dressing rooms, the floors are made of expensive varieties of wood; marble is used in the rest of the rooms.
However, the Agutin-Varum spouses showed up in the USA not only at this address. A little south of the apartment in Hollywood is one of the resort areas of Miami – the town of Sunny Isles Beach. Locals have long called it Little Moscow because of the abundance of wealthy immigrants from the former USSR.
In the very center of the town on the first coastline there is a high-rise residential complex The Pinnacle Condominium Association with a large private territory and a swimming pool. By the way, it houses the office of a Russian-speaking immigration lawyer, which only confirms the reputation of Sunny Isles Beach as a Russian district.
In one of the towers of the complex on the ground floor there is an apartment of 170 “squares”, consisting of three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Panoramic glazing to the floor and a small terrace overlooking the area with a swimming pool and the ocean behind it. A maximum of ten minutes walk from The Pinnacle Condominium Association, literally on the next street, is the Winston Tower residential complex, in which Philip Kirkorov lived.
Recently, housing has been rented out for $7,000 a month. The lease, judging by the name, is dealt with by a realtor – a native of Russia.
Another address is associated with the name of Agutin in the States. In the same large agglomeration of Miami on the East Coast is the town of Pompano Beach. It is a little north of Hollywood, where the couple’s relatives now live, and is located immediately behind Fort Lauderdale, the area where the daughter of comedian Alexander Nezlobin, who left Russia with the beginning of the NWO, was born.
Here, on the bank of the canal, which was chosen by numerous owners of yachts and other boats, the Agutin family loved to relax on the Intracoastal Point estate. A two-story house with an area of 320 “squares”, consisting of three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a gym, an extended terrace and a garage for two cars. In the courtyard there is a private pool with a green lawn under palm trees and a pier. The property is currently valued at $3.6 million.
